Capas sesena in Madrid sells online, though they have much more in stock in the shop (worth a visit). They will make to order, though didn't have time for that. The main models are available online.

So you only wear it around the house? Or when fighting crime?


Use it - it is a wonderful garment

I believe they are supposed to twinkle in sun these days. Or so say my women friends who were into Twilight.

My newest acquisition is the birdsye flannel from fox in 300 grams. I've never used a flannel this light but I think I would get really great use out of it and since the flannel is a lighter weight, I'm planning to have it made as a 3-piece.

Using these as an example, do you think jacket/sports coat would look good, or like an orphaned jacket ?

 

Anyone of the POW would work as a sport coat, I'm not sure why it wouldn't? The far left light grey one, will look great with blue chinos and light pink or blue shirt

Looking for high quality, obnoxiously large scale tweeds for making jackets. Something like this:

Help?

The scales are too fine for an odd jacket. These are definitively suitings. Also flannel odd jackets are odd. Flannel is for suits and pants.

they would not. You see alot of those types of "sportcoats" around here and they are not appropriate. Those are muted, smaller scale patterns made for suits. You can wear one as a sportcoat in the same way you can wear a pinstripe jacket as a sportcoat but those are suiting fabrics. From Fox, this is a sportcoat PoW (which would also work as DB)

Holland and Sherry has but you don't like H&S i think. Fox has a new tweeds book, I have it at home and can tale some pics. Marling and Evans has some rough large tweeds, quality wise its probably mid range.

To my eye, it looks fine, I guess YMMV. 

 

Also don't have an issue with flannel coats

Not obnoxious to me, but this is the one that I just purchased.

Fox has some nice looking flannels in the 300gms weight but I've unfortunately heard nothing good about them.

So Edmorel, How do we understand this.

Why is that PoW check more suited to Sports Jacket than the other Fox Flannels I orig posted? Just try to get my head around this.

 

Also, which bunches are best for jacketing tweeds, (I want to have something made and love the look of the tweeds/flannels jackets on the Armoury blog and on the Kiton/Attolini websites)

I have a great tailor here in London and want to source the cloth.
