1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm about to see Patrick of W.W. Chan, and I'd like commission a blue glen plaid suit. Nothing too crazy. Weight should be in 10 - 11 oz range, give or take.

    Looking on the web only (no swatches), I've come across Scabal Eton 751391 and 752104:

    and Harrison's Frontier 65047 (on left, obviously)

    It's hard to tell from these images, but the first Scabal maybe looks too dark, the second maybe too busy, and the Harrison's maybe too bright and purple (although some people claim it's close to Air Force Blue), but who knows? Patrick may not even have these books with him on tour. Any insight from anyone who actually knows these fabrics? Any other / better recommendations?

    Thanks....

    Michael

    Tbh, it's hard to determine the fabrics w/o knowing a) what's available b) what brunches he'll bring.

    Ask to see the English fabrics.

    I'd check: Lesser 8/9 Oz and 11/12 Oz, and Smith fabrics, maybe Frontier (though it isn't exceptional cloth)
