Anyone have anything made up in either Minnis 305 or 306 flannel?

I'd love to see real life pics...

Not in those colors but the 300 and 301 make up really well - as do the similar colors from H&S which seem the identical cloth. B

I have a pair of trousers in 300 and I find the cloth too heavy and uncomfortable. It feels like a cardboard

Regarding your colors, 304 looks better than 305 and 306

305 is a blazer to me. It's a purply blue. Very nice though. 306 is a classic navy.

Are these substantially darker in the photo than they are in real life?

I think 304 is Airforce blue but I could be wrong.

305/306 will most likely be a blazer...301 or 302 will be a suit.

The charcoal is Minnis. I also have a DB in 300 but don't have a photo of it. I agree that they are a bit firm, but that's ok for a structured garment.

Ruh-roh!

Any suggestions for a woolen flannel more suited (no pun intended) to softly-constructed garments?

Lesser/Harrison/Smith/Drapers -- all of these flannels are softer than Minnsi, which is tough as nails (despite being 100% woolen).

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
