    Yup, it's going to be great for that. The best thing about Pearl Grey (and medium grey flannel sportcoats in general) is that they match brilliantly to Navy trousers. As a nice light neutral tone it would also go well with brown, tan, olive, charcoal and even black. You'd just want to stay away from any medium to light grey pant.

    It has a great texture and it's being done in the unconstructed Napoli shape, so you can easily wear this casually. It would be a boss match for jeans.

    This is a Cucinelli jacket and a DB one at that, but the color tone will be fairly similar, so you can see how it jives with chinos:

    While this is certainly great news that you are opening a shop so close to me now... I hate to be the bearer of bad news. KDAY will most likely be shutting down in the near future and begin broadcasting Chinese radio

    I didn't wanna be the one to dash his dreams. I've been listening to KDAY since I was 10 years old. It's gonna be a sad day [​IMG].

    Hopefully they will follow in the preferred Giants' footsteps one day and also open up a store in San Francisco!

    Ah, actually I heard about this. It is indeed going to be sad. This was clearly the best radio station remaining on Earth.

    I could always make an old-school West Coast rap mix on my phone. But then where would I get my daily fix of auto insurance and payday loan commercials?

    So I take it there's no way to get the length of the FF sportcoats shortened? I prefer my sportcoats an inch shorter than my suit coats.

    I suppose I could buy a short version then have the sleeves let out.

    Yes, for Factory Finds you have to shorten both the body and the sleeves by 1" or 2". We can do one or the other with MTO's, but not with these.

    But, getting the sleeves let out one inch is no problem. They're not fully finished, and I've had many customers do that for our OTR jackets. It's typically an inexpensive alteration.

    Any thoughts to having an in house tailor for alterations/measurements for the jackets/pants/suits you offer (especially with factory finds where we have options on fit and such)? Now that you're coming to CA, lots of us could swing by, would ensure a good fit and no returns/further alterations.

    The Navy wool/cotton/cashmere is one of the best fabrics I've ever seen, honestly. I saw it during (capsule) in January and knew I had to have a suit in it.

    It has a great hand, is very substantial and is EXTREMELY hard wearing. You NYC dudes know how hard I wear my clothing. From shoes to sportcoats, I don't baby anything I own. I think clothes should be worn and the repairs/fades/whatever are, somewhat, badges of honor. I would liken the fabric to Fresco in a lot of ways, but the cashmere and cotton in the blend give it distinctly different properties. It is softer and thicker to the touch. I believe it's around 9.5 or 10 oz, so it's not a Summer fabric, but I can wear it comfortably up to almost 90 degrees. I think it's a 3 1/2 season fabric. For you LA or SF dudes, I think it would serve you all VERY well in particular.

    Matt, that jacket looks killer. Was that made from a standard Epaulet template, or did you go MTM on this one?

    That and what is the weaving like on the cloth? i.e. twill, herringbone, plain.

    I ordered the unstructured shoulder, but that didn't end up working that well for me. So I had my tailor fix the shoulders (add slight padding and take out the extra fabric) and had him dial in the body. Definitely the most comfortable and best fitting jacket I own.

    It's got a similar weave to the hopsack. Nice and loose.

    You know how we roll! I, personally, think you need both... [​IMG]
