    M (52 Cantarelli, 50 Formosa, for comparison). The linen was an MTO.

    Very interested in a Formosa chalk stripe (traditional wide).

    You guys like it, teh navy? Here's an image I found of Fox flannel. I can post a pic of my Minnis sample tonight unless Greg wants to beat me to it.

    Minnis mid-grey flannel for purposes of comparison. I have the navy too which is equally awesome:slayer:

    That's the medium-spaced one, correct? #308. Minnis also has a narrower-spaced chalk stripe and wider spaced one.

    Great tie btw!

    I bet for a GMTO we could probably get a reasonable price on it though.

    Would love to see the medium and the wide next to each other. Anyone have swatch pics?

    I could possibly be in for this (navy fox flannel). Also, would this be for Eidos or Formosa? (don't know if I've seen a Eidos GMTO before)

    Formosa. We haven't done vests with them before, so I'm not sure exactly how the 3-pc would work in terms of pricing and minimums.

    Thanks for the props on the tie G!

    Yup, #308. The medium spaced worked best for me as the wide was great but not workplace friendly and the narrow lost some of the chalk stripe allure.

    I think some could do 2, some 3. @gdl203 would have to confirm though. Doing the pants is another issue. If we waited to put the pants in with the spring/summer suits order, that might bring the final price down. But that might mean delivery when winter is already about over.

    I think by the time the GMTO is set up/ processed, and the jackets are produced, winter would be over anyway so might as well wait and save money.
    (so arrive late this winter)
