That similar to what I had made up in a DB suit; still haven't gotten round to wearing it yet (it's a winter weight).

It is not a flannel.

The cloth looks a lot like the Minnis Rangoon I mentioned upthread. I did have mine made up and wear it occasionally, but don't have any photos kicking around.

If you are referring to my suit it is made from Dugdale's 8711 in their Formal Wear bunch IIRC.

Jacket came in...beautiful fabric. It is so soft and hangs nicely (a bit of a gap in the around the neck, right side)

^Seconded.  Also, I really like the shirt - especially the collar.  Oxford cloth?  Mind saying where it's from?
