    Looks like some sort of nailhead pattern. Can't tell 100% based on those photos though.

    Looks like what we call "fil a fil" here (end on end?)

    Don't feel bad. It really does fade away from about 6" inches away.

    I believe that SB's fabric would be called a tickweave, though fil a fil or end on end (in a shirting fabric, certainly) would be about the same weave.

    Yeah, that looks totally different up close... Not what I expected to see. Definitely not a nailhead.

    That closeup is the first time I've looked that closely at it, and to my eye it appears to be a micro-houndstooth.

    This jacket is fantastic. Those lapels and roped shoulders have "authority". I think that this is the best of all your posts which are always good. The conservative striped shirt with the solid tie perfectly sets up the stage for that bright pocket square. Que bien!

    Not quite. Fil-a-fil, end on end, and chambray are all just plain woven fabrics with different colored warps and weft. A tick weave is more general in that its a fabric with a repeating pattern. A houndstooth is a tick weave that is twill woven. Birdseye is also a tick weave. It's all very esoteric and silly.

    Do the sleeves "show" with the turtlenecks OTR the way you like them or do you have to get them altered? Also, what do you wear underneath it?

    Looks great BTW! [​IMG]

    Great combo, but the crotch area looks strange, almost as if you had put the pants on the wrong way. :confused:

    hahaha, yeah. I have lost some more weight at the hips area and these pants have double forward pleats, so the extra fabric bunches up in funny ways when I'm not standing perfectly straight [​IMG]

    That, and the fact that the trousers are not dressed [​IMG]

    clarinetplayer, thanks! You're right in that the roped shoulders add "authority", but the main reason I chose them is because they're very flattering for the nonexistant shoulders God gave me [​IMG]
