    Pretty sure I have trousers in this same fabric, though it is a little difficult to discern the exact color online. Mine are a stone color with an obvious twill weave to them. I got the swatch beneath this one made up as well, and while that one looks to be a standard, mid brown shade, after getting them home they show a decided olive tone in certain light. I have honestly never had a fabric change color so dramatically on me in different lighting.

    I had very high hopes for the Eksdale book, and while the performance of the cloth cant be faulted (the trousers are really excellent and drape beautifully), there simply isnt enough in my wheelhouse in the range. I recently ordered a couple of pairs fromthe Fresco III book and may be able to get everything I need for wool trousers out of that book. Obviously flannel and cotton will require me to branch out, but I am spoilt for choice with the current Fresco options.

    Seems quite few ppl used that book...It is like standard grey with a touch of green and yellow. Twill gives it some uniform feeling which Fresco cannot offer. I love Fresco too.

    Sorry, no fitting pics. I have ordered two pairs of trousers and the execution is really good. Working with Frederik is really a pleasure, he has a good eye and really knows what he is doing. :thumbs-up: Hoppas det hjälper!

    I don't intend to be a regular poster, but I wanted to show you guys this one. A suit in the lamented Minnis Rangoon, which I am getting to see how it stacks up against the new Fresco Lite.

    Seems reasonable to specify sleeving and lining; I have long done that (from specific range of LBD0 indeed I only ever have one sleeving (T760). Labels - yes cloth maker under the left ticket pocket and no others.

    What is that cutter depicted here wearing on his feet? They look more appropriate to someone wearing jeans.
