Due to many happy customers from the first couple of GMTO sport coat runs, we're gearing up for another round. These are all fall/winter fabrics, as likely delivery would be in January. But I'll get a warm weather pool started soon too.

I photographed each of these with Rota medium gray flannel trousers underneath just for a color reference.

Here are your contestants:

Porter and Harding Hartwist 32113, Caramel with blue windowpane



P&H Hartwist 32133, Red and cream windowpane on sage ground



P&H Hartwist 32136, Russell Plaid



Moonbeam brown with blue checks (@DLJr special)




Moonbeam navy with brown checks



Moonbeam navy herringbone



W. Bill light brown with brown/orange checks



H&S Harris Tweed black and white herringbone



H&S Harris Tweed multicolor green ground



H&S Harris Tweed box of crayons houndstooth



Drapers cashmere beige ground with blue and orange checks



Delfino Maremma brown check



Delfino Maremma brown and charcoal gun club



Delfino Maremma brown and cream check



Drapers Royal Cashmere brown with cream and red checks



H&S Sherry Tweed brown with orange checks



H&S Sherry Tweed brown donegal



Delfino Brughiera gun club check

Subscribed as well.

What's the pricing? Any interest in peak lapel?

Pricing is surely a little higher on the cashmere ones of course, but it's easiest to figure out exactly what each will be once we've gauged interest. But we're looking at around $16-1700 unless some fabric turns out to be really expensive.

Peak lapel would probably be a tough sell on any of these fabrics IMHO.

Despite having an incoming moonbeam, I'd probably be in for a fabric order on 36664. I also really like the beige cashmere from Drapers, I just struggle with pairing light jackets.

Good stuff, excited to see what comes out for the summer list since the next thing I really need to get started on is a summer jacket.

@Newcomer since you broke NPC so hard, you should probably just step up to the plate and hit up the next Formosa Bespoke Trunk Show.

Delfino Maremma brown check


This one. Hands down.

PS: Closer look. If it wasn't for that thin dark divider pane. That looks like an afterthought and one pattern too many. Pity.

H&S Harris Tweed multicolor green ground


H&S Harris Tweed box of crayons houndstooth

These are my favorites I think, which is good, because it looks as if no one else like them. :)

Unbel,
what is the number on the grey with blue windowpane Sherry Tweed? I think it would make a great sport coat, I know grey is tough and people don't like it but I like it.
