Really interesting piece on Anderson & Sheppard knitwear in their new haberdashery on Clifford Street. Link: http://www.permanentstyle.co.uk/2013/10/slim-fitting-knitwear-at-anderson.html#.UlwK7xah-MM

I'll be getting fittings for an LL green tweed sportcoat and a Fox Flannel DB navy chalk stripe. Can't wait.


What is the LL green tweed?

This is what I'm doing...a test run of a mid green with blue and brown windowpane with herringbone and barleycorn patterns mixed in together. Anything, but uninspiring. That green safe color is quite nice though.

It is just solid green? Does it have any panes or stripes? Anything? Looks very uninspiring to me. Sorry Slew biggrin.gif

Solid green, but quite a bit of heathering.

fantastic .... where have you found? that has weight? very special and unique. It's vintage?

Thanks Gianni. This fabric was made custom over at The London Lounge. I suggested Michael Alden make something similar and he incorporated the herringbone / barleycorn effect. It was based off an old vintage fabric from the Hunters of Brora Carroll Book. I am having a fitting with Steed in a week and I will try and post some photos.

Beautiful. And great idea herringbone. Really. I can not wait to see new pictures.

Got a package yesterday. Alterations on a blue jacket steed made for me a year or so ago. Looks perfect now. Also, new 3 piece gray flannel to replace a 15 y/o gray flannel that just finally gave out. If can squeeze 20 years out of the new one--it's Minnis, so tougher flannel--it will last the rest of my working life.

Which flannel did you get? 301?
post #2265 of 2368
I think , indeed, it was 301. So, second lightest. Right in the middle. SB vest. Nothing fancy except the brace back trousers (which no one will ever see) and the vest itself, which is a rarity these days but I don't mind.
