Thanks all, but you're not converging on the same answers!
Unbel, I do think a bigger houndstooth would be better (saw one on the bus after leaving the store and thought, yep bigger/better). You don't like brighter colors in fall/winter?
Some brighter colors are good in fall/winter, but not bright blue. Think about the colors you see around in the fall/winter. Rust, violet, and whatnot.
Yeah, I know and have preference for a muted fall color scheme, but the sky, when it comes out in winter, is bright. Navy isn't much of a fall color, except I suppose in, well, the navy!
That said, I'd never wear sky blue in the winter, or be disinclined to. Will check on how bright that blue is IRL if I press ahead.
6, but the Moonbeam version is better. Too bad they don't have that.
There comes a point where for a bit more, through Formosa at NMWA, a MTO might be the way to go.
Greg once posted a really nice rich almost coppery herringbone when he was offering the first MTO. Didn't make it to the top, but I thought it was great.
^ That's pretty much the conclusion I've reached and why I've joined a number of the GMTO's. The value proposition is pretty high, as long as the fit works.
I've come to that point...now I can't settle for much less. I am giving Eidos MTO a shot through NMWA though...nice prices.
Glad I can just slip into RTWs with no major alterations.
Clags, something like the London Lounge houndstooth would be a nice addition to your rotation:
Cox, my thought: Stop sticking your hand in your pocket for pictures, dammit!
I have a brown silk-wool-linen from B&T. A number of blue linen numbers, obviously. Going to use a combination of Suit Supply and B&T (one a year) going forward.
I like that fabric Butchy. Something along those lines. Warm. But that might be of limited use in Texas. People are still walking around in shorts and tshirts.
Sugar, I owned that cloth for about two weeks before I sold it back to someone on LL
It's a very intense fabric, not for the faint of heart. Large scale herringbones have a very limited range in terms of versatility
I believe Edmorel commented he didn;t like large scale herrings either
#2 is the most useful without being boring. Thats what Id kop if I was you, Tweedy.
IMO #1 = horse blanket, #2 = awsm and versatile, #3 ditto, #4 meh, #5 cool, #6 got one like that and IMO it's awsm
