The gray one is quite nice as well. I would go with either the blue or the gray unfused ones. How much more less was the fused one? Probably still better to pay more for full canvas.

Not fused are from +50% to 100% of fused prices

Well, then . . . I might go with the Super 150 gray one if it was the same price as the Super 120s blue one. But 120s are great fabrics as well. I'm just thinking the Super 150 might be a lighter weight, which are sometimes hard to come by.

Like the color of the first and the texture of the second.  Ernest, if you are unemployed and living at home (with atrocious bedroom furnishings, by the way) how come you are spending a mint on tailored clothing?  And how can you?
Ernest has answered this before -- he hates to travel and does not have to pay rent.

Seriously though, Ernest. I think LA Guy may have a good point here; you may be spending a bit much for your age/income bracket. You seem to have quite a large collection as it is, and a pretty darn good one at that it seems. This board shouldn't be a pissing contest. There is nothing wrong with spending a lot on things you enjoy, provided you are making wise purchases. You may want to consider putting some money in the bank if you don't have a regular income.

Do not worry for my bank I spend money I have got. These are very wise purchases...
