I've seen that green with blue overcheck on several occasions. It seems to be rather popular. I would say it and the top right are my favorites of the bunch.

When they came out they all looked pretty much the same. That said, the bleeding version is a relatively muted colour scheme which has a cream background and the other non-bleeding colours I ordered were much bolder. I may have ruined the bleeding effect by running through the dryer but the fabric is a relatively loose weave and I was afraid of post-tailoring shrinkage. I still hope for some bleeding effect but only time will tell now. Maybe these fabrics just don;t bleed as much as before.
Perhaps a lukewarm soak instead? If you put it in a basin, you would get some insight into how it bleeds.

I guess next time? Would still like to get some vibrant colours in the bleeding madras.

That might be a good idea for a group purchase. Their minimum length for a commission is 100m, and price is a tad less than $10/m. I wouldn't mind some of the navy blue checks.

I'd be in for 3 or 4 shirts

Re: Dugdale, I can vouch for their heavyweight moleskins and cords. They are strong, soft and drape very well.

Did you get all of those samples from www.scotlandshop.com? I've been looking for a brown POW like in your photo and when I sent Lovat an e-mail a couple of months back, they said they didn't have anything similar in stock.

Some suiting birdseyes

Thanks to @Slickman for the recommendation.

Compare to this shetland-y tweed version. GIANT birdseye weave from Ardalandish. Very striking.

How would this look as an odd jacket?
