I was thinking wide classic chalk stripe.
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.
aasa, love that gray Merino.
Minnis mid-grey flannel for purposes of comparison. I have the navy too which is equally awesome
That's the medium-spaced one, correct? #308. Minnis also has a narrower-spaced chalk stripe and wider spaced one.
Great tie btw!
if only fox flannel wasn't 90pounds/meter...
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.
would everyone be required to do 3 pieces? or could some do 2?
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)
