Maybe you can say Frontier is the basic suiting collection of Harrisons. Non super, no cashmere blend. It has a bit rough surface so you won't expect  "luxury" feeling. It emphasizes more on performance and breathability. Moreover, it has >90 patterns so it is a good choice for building up your wardrobe.

The same with other Harrisons collections, Frontier is made in the UK. I have just received my own navy windowpane Frontier suit, which I like it much.

Actually there are many 100% wool suiting collections just slightly more expensive.  For example, Fine Classics, which is a 12oz worsted suiting fabrics with many traditional patterns. Let me show you later. fing02%5B1%5D.gif

Do you have a suit made-up using Harrison Fine Classic?

Not yet. I have one piece of Lesser 8/9oz charocal pinstripe. I plan to start this project next year around spring. Have you comissioned your Lesser 8/9oz yet? :satisfied:

I have myself one Harrisons Froniter navy windowpane suit. You can use it as reference. But I also feel fine with the jacket as odd jacket, pairing with grey worsted pants as semi-business attire.

 

 

 

 

That's a really nice suit. I suppose the navy fresco in that sense could work quite well as an odd jacket from the suit.

thanks for the help Merino.

I have both.

I think my fine classic behaves better. But the lesser is more suitable for the hot days even at 11-12oz.

Nice. I'm looking to get a DJ soon too. Maybe midnight blue, any recommendations please?

Has anyone had a sportcoat made up with Harrison's Mirage? Any opinions on how it makes up, hand, drape, etc.? I'm thinking of using it in place of Minnis fresco for a spring/summer jacket. Is it only limited to those seasons or could it be used into autumn if a dark brown?

This is the Mirage I'm thinking of using--brown with a pastel blue/lavender triple windowpane (instead of solid brown 0518 Minnis Fresco):



Any opinions on this particular pattern/color or on Mirage, generally?

If you want something more common and less stiff, I do find leser formal range pretty good. In particular, the 11oz wool and mohair range is pretty good.

I have tried midnight blue dj and I dont like it.I much prefer the black tie rig consist of black sb and cream db.

There are several patterns in the Mirage that can pass off as autumn colours; if you want I can send a few pictures to you as I have the book.

 

Although Mirage is intended for summer jacketings, it would depend where you are based. If you are in a humid country like mine, I would prefer the Fresco compared to the Mirage. Drape wise, the Mirage drapes nicely based on the 7 jackets I have seen made up from this book.
