Sounds like an interesting project.Just started a bespoke blazer project with the guys at Tailor's Keep in SF, same folks that did the Mersolair mocha linen suit for @UrbanComposition . They recently got in the new Fox Sport book, and I loved the FS12 "Bright Navy" swatch. I know there's a lot of hate for brass buttons, but I found these very clean buttons sans anchors or other insignias.
Going 6x2 double breasted with patch pockets. Super excited about it. Will get my first round of fitting with the garment in about 1.5 months.

FWIW, I think it's worth taking that swatch outside in natural and direct sunlight, if you can. That blue in the photo looks like it has a slightly purple-y cast. I find colder looking blues a bit easier to wear, esp if they have brass buttons.
