Finally picked up my brown corduroy suit from St Gregory last week. It turned out just the way I had hoped it would.

That looks great. I always thought that I’d go with green for my first corduroy suit but this has me rethinking that choice.
I already have a green corduroy suit :)

So i wanted to get one jacket that was a super bold, sort of fuck-you pattern.

I was thinking a big houndstooth in gray. I can't seem to find a fabric that matches that. Barring said fabric i was thinking a huge glen plaid check sort of thing.

Here's where it gets challenging. The two checked fabrics i like. I'm also thinking for a future commission a suit in a gray 3p Glen plaid check type of fabric. So while i like the all-gray fabric i think it would be too similar to a future commission. Also, i am not sure the pattern is BIG enough. So i am deciding between the two checks for one coat and the houndstooth. I just don't know which to prioritize. The houndstooth is the size i like but not the exact color i was looking for. But i really like it. I also like the two checks.

So knowing what I am looking for which one should i go with first. I was told the houndstooth fabric would sell out first. No idea if i buy that. Then which check.

This jacket is intentionally a bold jacket that should stand out.

Those patterns are hard to wear.

Eddie, do the bold blue stripe. The folded up cloth in the second picture. Not only will it stand out, it will be hard to accessorize and pick trousers for. Perfect trifecta!

That was not an option!
