    I am looking forward to seeing Mina tomorrow. Seeing her in Boston will mean that I have seen her four different cities so far, which amuses me greatly.

    They call it navy and ecru with a dark green windowpane. The effect is kind of a cool gray. I'm DTO-ing NOBD. 2-pc SB, but with flap pockets.

    Yes. Gray flannel is my favorite kind of suit to wear, so I don't mind having a few. This will be a PoW from Fox Flannel so a little different.
    Sounds good. Do you regret getting patch pockets on the solid grey flannel suit or are the flaps on this one just because you like the diversity and/or that you feel they're better suited to this fabric?

    Flap pockets! Great. I'm glad that you've finally come to your senses
    [​IMG] I still love a good patch pocket. But, some suits just call for flaps.

    You're 1 city ahead of me.

    Black is back! Move it up a notch on the iGent hype cycle. [​IMG]

    No regrets. I was having some fun with that. Generally, I like patch pockets on sport coats and casual suits and flaps for more formal fabrics. Gray flannel probably calls for flaps, but I think sometimes you can go either way.

    My understanding is that (after talking to her) she doesn't feel like she can expand her tour schedule adequately to service these places regularly.

    That said, I am trying to persuade her to come to Singapore so she can holiday in Bali and perhaps bring my commissions with her =D

    How does one contact Mina? I wrote her a few days ago at the email on her web site and I have had no reply.

    She will reply to any email sent to that address. Mina and Dino are both very busy, but are also both very responsive. I would give a little more time for a response, and check your junk mail folder. If you continue to have issues, it could be an email/provider issue. If so, you can feel free to PM me your contact info, and I will ask them to reach out to you.

    two pair of trousers-one to go with a lighter than navy mohair jacket which i will receive monday-the other a blue flannel with a grayish tint. beautiful fabric which i haven't seen many examples of in the wild.
    also, a db overcoat in a brown herringbone for late fall/early spring type weather.
