From the merino bros photos it looks like it might not be an open weave.

My concern with a darker brown is that it can look a little too much like feces. I know that sounds crazy but it is what I think of.

I quite like the shade of the second linen suit you posted. Has more of a gold tinge to it and steers away from being too brown. I wonder what book its from.

 

They both look like feces - just depends on what has been eaten before... ;)

Do Harrisons mail swatches?
Sorry, I'm sure this has been asked a million times.

Looking great. On the supers scale where does this range fall 100s, 120s?

Spoken like a true parent...

Going to go with the Caccioppoli fabric, it has a bit more golden/brown in it than the W. Bill khaki. I think it will make for a slightly more interesting suit.

Regency is mostly twill weave with smoother hand feeling while Frontier is plain, more open weave. It is also heavier than Lessers Tropical, which is 8-9oz. In terms of pricing, Regency is similar to Frontier, making it an ideal choice for basic suiting.

Decisions, decisions.

IME, the 12/13 oz finmeresco is slightly less open weave and wears just a bit warmer than 10 oz fresco.

Harrison's has been incredibly helpful in mailing multiple swatches to me.

I'll be really interested to see this book. I've been impressed by Frontier. It's a near perfect weight for eight or nine months of the year here in SoCal. But the panama weave means no sharkskins, birdseyes, or herringbones. Looks as though Regency plugs that gap. Also makes me curious if this is a rebranding of the Lesser's 9.5/10oz book which was fantastic.

I have to say, though Harrison's doesn't get anything like the love accorded Lesser's and Smith's, I've been really impressed by the performance of the Harrison's fabrics I have.

Frontier is closer to the Lesser 9.5/10oz - both are plain weaves.
