I got my Navy Tweed y'day as well - it looks really good, very strong fabric - I got it with the golden buttonhole, think that adds a nice touch. I didn't dare going for the natural shoulders option, but even with the padded shoulders it looks good - I really like the look of linsook's shoulders though! linsook, can I use your pics on my blog to illustrate the natural shoulders option? sure go ahead. the db I purchased was also a natural shoulder if you want to use that too which is way way back in this thread. just to note, for this suit, i asked to have the lapel gorge higher and more open quarters.
