Bateman & Ogden have something similar and may have others in their Fine & Dandy range http://www.batemanogden.co.uk/#/fabrics

I'm not mad at the lighter than blue W. Bill tho.

Had not considered complexion with respect to the khakis - I actually have never owned a suit or jacket of similar coloring.

Not sure if it'll make a difference to you.

I have brown skin which means a lot of the popular linen suit shades like cigar won't work with my complexion.

I've always ignored the whole complexion thing. In my opinion it is a bit too finicky.

^ Agreed. I do think complexion issues can be valid but a lot of times theories about what goes best with a particular skin tone result in one limiting one's potential clothing choices in a way that does not benefit one's wardrobe or appearance.

I'm not a colour wheel type of person but I do recognize where certain colours (albeit very few) just don't work with my skin tone.

I imagine it's more of a consideration for ppl of color.

I just picked up my funded liability; this P&B Universal "hopsack" "barathea" or whatever it is. Made up beautiful, I'll have to snap some full pics but here is a shot up close. Note the fuzz.

Interesting. I tend to think that people of color can wear a wider range of colors.

It's kind of a toss-up. On the one hand, black goes with everything. On the other hand, people of no color are working with a clean slate.

Photo is a bit over-exposed, but here is the basted fitting of my recently funded jacket. Fabric is wool/silk/linen Harrison's Mirage, in a knobbly brown with triple blue windowpane.

The Bateman Ogden books are resold by Huddersfield Fabrics these days, the bunches have different names, but they're completely the same fabrics.

I'm sure we can but when the fabric colour approaches my own, then it's becomes more of an issue.
