    Very cool. Everyone always says how wonderful Fox is, so I feel very tempted to try for myself one day. However, I've already got this flannel in hand and think it's pretty damned good.


    I wasn't mentioning it to suggest you should switch, just thought you might be interested. Did you ever say what flannel yours is? I would guess Minnis 0300. I have 0301 and 0304 (air force dark blue) and like both.

    We'll see. They already tried re-blocking the pants, but that didn't work. I'm not sure what next steps are.

    you're cocky enough to post nonchalantly about your 5k suits, 1k pants, and hermes wallet purchase attempts but you're not enough of man to hold a "respected" cleaner accountable for their mistakes? [​IMG]

    What the fuck? By its very nature a forum devoted to high quality tailored clothing will involve high prices. As for "nonchalantly" how the fuck is one meant to make posts on a forum, by apologising for the cost? [​IMG]

    Demanding that the cleaner be 'held accountable' is how a small-timer would behave, a big-timer just writes off the cost and has new trousers made. From this perfepective, Foo's posts and behaviour appear to be entirely consistent.

    I still think 15 oz whipcord would have been a better or at least more durable choice.


    What will the summer Onetrouser be made from?

    So, can you now please finally enlighten us which fabric you chose? I am still of the opinion, btw, that my assumption was not not right.

    i get it now.

    i did this with some Calvin Klein pants earlier this year. "The Bowery, i believe. Bought all 4-5 finishes and wore them exclusively for several months and was very satisfied.

    now have to wear a suit every day and i havent worn any of those pants in weeks...

    It's not worsted. It's not less than 13oz. It's not Italian. It's not not light grey.

    Ok, last try before I am going to insist that you are wrong and it is indeed Minnis 0300: Harrison West of England flannel in (what they call) mid-grey.

    No, you were not wrong that it is Minnis 0300.

    I might have to come back here in a few hours to check the last couple of pages in order to understand this.
