    Anyone ever see Minnis Fresco 0511 in the flesh? I need cloth for summer odd trousers, but it's impossible to tell what it looks like based on the website photos. Looking for a very light grey.

    I have stuff made with it. They are lighter than the picture on the web site, but they are more of a medium light grey. They are definitely not a very light grey, though. It's unfortunate that 0511 is the lightest grey Fresco available. As an aside, that web site has awful pictures.

    If I remember, I'll try to take a picture when I get a chance.

    Thanks a bunch. There is also 0500, which looks much lighter, but it's also a lighter weight.

    I have a few photos from when Minnis was offered here but don't know how to post pictures. I'd be happy to get them to you if you want to review

    They're also out of the 0500 till July I think. I prefer the lighter weight, but oh well. The 0500 is definitely a rather light grey.

    0511 in the spring/summer. 0300 in the fall/winter. Throw in a few pairs of cotton, linen, and cords for more casual wear, and I'm set.

    How does the 511 compare to the 300 in color? I just got my first pair of 300 trousers--I fear they are a bit light for fall/winter, but would be perfect in color for summer.

    The 300 is a good bit lighter than the 511. I'll try to take a picture tomorrow with both, so you can have a better understanding for how light the 511 is.

    In a perfect world, I'd swap the colors of 300 and 511, but I'm pretty content as is.
