    All interesting stuff. We don't see that kind of look a lot in the fit pics here (maybe except for you Kyle). And I hadn't even noticed that Geller knit before. If I got that I could wear it with the OS multitweed from last year and have a battle of the color blocks.

    OK guys here are some swatch pics...I'd say overall these are a tad lighter than IRL as you can see by the white glare on the stickers, which actually have writing on them...

    Personally I think the hand of the Fox is nicer - it feels more substantial. To me the Minnis Narrows are too narrow (3/8"), although this makes them easier to wear in a conservative office setting. The Fox wides are pretty wide (0.75"). Fox narrow is 3.5/8". I think they look great, but maybe too dandy. Minnis wide is just over a 1/2" and looks great in navy.

    Thank you for posting the samples. Do you have an idea on the weight of the cloth/fabric?

    I see. Will that weight be OK for Fall/Winter Southern California weather?

    you'll be warm, but fine. take off your jacket indoors.

    if you're worried about being too warm, speak to Sator.

    Well the real answer is I can't tell you for sure since people vary a lot in how hot or cool they run. If you're used to the standard 3-season suits that most stores carry, this will be heavier than that. But I think for most ppl, as vvvbj said, wearing this in 50-70 degree weather with no overcoat would not be a problem.

    I'm interested and favor the first gray.

    As an LA resident, I think people are spot-on about the weight. I think it's fine for Fall -- at least aside from the stretches we get of 85 degree "Fall" weather. Today, for example, it would be fine. I walked about 1/2 mile to lunch today. Had I been wearing this suit with the jacket, it probably would have been a bit too warm -- so I would have taken my jacket off and carried it. By next week, it could be 15 degrees cooler (or five or ten warmer, of course). But you'd get plenty of Fall/Winter use out of it, I'm sure.

    @venividivicibj , Thanks man, I pretty much do that indoors anyway. @unbelragazzo , do we get to vote on the cloth selections and style?
