    What are people's thoughts on summer weight flannel? That just seems weird to me, but I do love flannel pents.

    These do not wear too warm. But, will be out of action during the warmest days of the year. In places like NY, they would remain unused for about a month.

    Is this a summer flannel (didn't know such a thing existed)? - http://custom.luxire.com/collection...barberis-canonico-flannels-grey-vbc_599_101_3

    Appropriate for year round wear in a moderate climate like California?

    One staple, one a bit rakish.
    Epic VBC deal is epic.

    The VBC black twill is listed at 250g/8 Oz, what temperate ranges would this be suitable for? Looking for something in a 3 season fabric for a 4 season climate (Toronto, Canada)

    8oz is generally a summer weight, but twill is usually pretty tightly woven so it'll wear fairly warm for its weight. So it should be OK for three seasons TO, particularly if you run warm. Late spring through early fall should work easy.

    Thanks for the help. For your version, does it look exactly the same unbuttoned (adjusting for proportions)? I'm new to specifying collars...

    ah sorry, the original cutaway roma collar on the popover posted a page or two back that you modeled your collar off of

    So I might have confused things by misunderstanding what the basis for SVB's collar was, @easy_golfing. I thought he and I had both used PC's soft Roma (formerly Milano) cutaway as the model. Mine is exactly the same dimensions as PC. I thought SVB had scaled this same collar differently for his purposes.

    Anyway, I think the Van Buren Cutaway will give you a very similar look to the one on my popover, but with what should be better proportions for you. Stanley's is a great looking collar.

    Thank you for the input. I think I'm going to take the plunge given the VBC deal, the other candidate would be the Minnis Black Twill listed at 10-11 oz but it is significantly higher in price

    Thanks guys! I don't have a measuring tape handy right this minute, but I think it's about 13.75" on the thigh, 9.75" on knee, and 8.75" on the hem.

    Luxire said back on the last page that it would be $600-$700 depending on fabric for a jacket. I think I will order one and hold off on the measurements until I get my first jacket, which should be within the next week. I'm thinking...fully canvassed, soft shoulders, patch pockets, 1/4 or maybe 3/8 lined, with light brown horn buttons. I would get a ton of wear out of that for probably 85% of the year here.

    EDIT - I think I found a pic of the estate blue Hopsack made up, this looks great:

    The 4 VBC hopsack options are very unique. The weight, the feel, the weave are all very interesting. The colors are great too.

    The weave is very Fresco like, but much more airy. Compared to the Fresco, the yarn is slightly thicker, making them not as see through.

    At the offer price of $149.99, they are an amazing bargain.

    I'd love a jacket but they don't have a copy of one for me on file, so I'll have to settle for some VCB flannels and mid greys.
