Thanks. I think I'm sitting this one out (watch me regret this).

The LL / Molloy is kind of a cream / light tan melange plus dark brown. It's very nice in person, but a melange of just light tan like the Reid would also look great. FWIW, it's one of the sportcoats I've been most complemented in just the few short months I've owned it. Whichever way the final order goes I'm sure it'll be a hit. Enjoy!

Funny. I have the diametrically opposite opinion. I spent a stupid amount of time looking at Solaros in the fall - I wish I had found the Cacciopoli cotton Solaro right away and could get all my time back.

Stop fighting, Mommy and Daddy!

No fighting. Different tastes!

About that barleycorn, jrd, how much does it cost? If that makes sense, we could get a couple lengths for bespoke customers.

I choose to see all disagreements as mortal conflicts. Is that wrong?

@gdl203, asked today if they could give me a price for this short run (not stock supported so they have to figure out the cost of tooling, materials, etc)

It certainly makes for better movies.
