    @Gerry Nelson I believe you have a green flannel suit. Couldn't find the fit pictures. Would you mind posting some pictures. Also how versatile is it? Green vs dark olive vs lighter olive with faint check- what's your thoughts? Seriously thinking of adding a olive suit this winter.

    You can see pictures at http://gezzasmenswear.tumblr.com/post/114749055562/celebrating-the-return-of-autumn-with-green-tweed

    I find the jacket very versatile and wear it with khakis, dark denim, grey flannel or as part of the suit. By the way, it's green Donegal tweed not flannel. I bought it to split it and it's worked well for me.

    Bit of an out of the way question, but hopefully somebody can help.

    We just cleared out my mother-in-law's house, prior to sale. In the process I found an antique umbrella. It looks to be made of a wood shaft and handle, and metal struts. I think the tips of the struts are possibly ivory. Surprisingly, the structure and mechanism are completely sound, but there are some rips and holes in the canopy.

    So does anybody know a place in Melbourne where I could get this restored? Also, does anybody know when wooden umbrellas like this stopped being made? Thanks.

    I think there is still one manufacturer of umbrellas in Australia because my cobbler sells some and sold me one. I think she is in Brisbane.

    The suit was made by Patrick Johnson. The fabric is donegal tweed from Caccioppoli which originated from Ariston. It's a very light fabric as far as tweeds go.

    Besides Shuron and Moscot what are some other good trad eyewear brands to check out? (Not including Bailey Nelson, Warby Parker etc).
