Would you be able to recommend something for a grey odd jacket in a summer weight? 8ozs and below..

post #8417 of 12214
Sorry. There have been a lot of casualties in that weight, and I don't know what's looking good right now.

What about a solid grey Minnis Fresco? 0511 or some such.
post #8419 of 12214
Grey SC don't look good to begin with, 0511 is a suit cloth. The only real exception would be a grey/b&w herringbone, but other than that I'm not a real fan of grey odd jackets.

The Glorious Twelfth isn't dead of summer wear, but might have a few options.

Also, there are black/white glen check and houndstooth in the London Lounge linen collection. (The suiting collection, if you're browsing online.)

Not at all cheap, but good quality.

Try have a look at the Ariston/Caccioppoli  jacketing range. I saw some nice grey jacketings with interesting designs.

Do any of you guys have your 8 oz suits double stitched or something? I had a fitting today and I'm concerned an overly deep squat could lead to some unfortunate consequences

It's never been an issue for me but I tend to get my pants cut full.

Every tailor I have known runs two lines of stitching on the seat. One on top of the other. There is a special nylon thread that has a natural elasticity to it that is designed to use only on the inseam and waist/ seat seam. We use this on certain cloths.

What you are describing doesn't sound like a comfortably cut trouser

Depending on the tensile strength of the cloth, I would be concerned about the cloth tearing rather than the seam splitting.

Or a type of squat that is typically done pantless.

I also thought about Moonbeam, but only if I were to get a windowpane. I was hoping for a POW pattern with an overcheck in another color.

I have the grey Moonbeam with purple/lavender windowpane. I really like it.

Women adore it.
