Grandma was a looker.

I'll post some shots if anyone's interested once I get the minor amendments sorted when they're back from the US.

The downside to all of this is that I now have a wardrobe full of suits that I'm dissatisfied with and a set of swatches that I can't wait to have made up.

In archaic English you have arrived at "Ye Slippery Slope"

A bit of a self-plug, but here's me wearing my Steed Lumbs Golden Bale Flannel DB suit. Love it!

Not for me. Sounds like a fun job. (Nice suit too of course).

Congrats on the write-up! The suit looks great as well.

Yes please.

Views without the coat on and the inside of the coat would be interesting to show how the trousers look and their workmanship in finishing the coat.

Congratulations David! From the couple of pictures in the article, that suit's A&S provenance really sings out, and looks great.

I was keen to see the photograph of the flannel suit!
I just got my first flannel jacket (Fox Brothers lightweight Queen's Award) in cornflower blue from N&L. But the Wall Street Journal website proved to be an abyss which took drastic measures for my modest mobile phone to escape!
