    The Black Fleece suit I bought last week.
    So I picked it up today.
    Please excuse me not wearing a tie because I didn't feel like taking off one suit and putting a whole new one on.
    Also, I am going to try and take some in daylight tomorrow primarily because the pinstripes on the lapels against the white shirt make them look "ruffled."
    This isn't the case when I look at myself in the mirror; but, must have something to do with the shirt/lights/pinstripes through the camera lens and onto the computer screen.

    P.S. I also got lazy editing the pics.

    I think that Black Fleece suit looks good.

    I want to go pick up one of the Oxfords.

    I really like it. Hell I was even tempted to wear it just to the movies tonight. The pics don't do it justice; but, I jumped the gun. I'll take some more tomorrow with daylight.

    Even with all of this I have shitty lighting at night.

    What size? I don't think there are really any 0's and 1's left. A few 2's here and there and everything else is 3, 4, 5. Even online is backordered in most sizes until Nov. 1st.

    I'd like to make a correction too; Peasant didn't actually charge me any money for the order that didn't process, it's been a misunderstanding from my side. Plus they've been great help for sorting out all the problems and my urgent questions. Great service and I'll definitely buy from them more often in the future... as long as I can manage to enter my billing address properly!

    I haven't handled black fleece in person, how would you compare it to TB in terms of cut and fabrics/construction?

    Well they are all fully canvased and made in Italy. I can take a pic of the actual content/model tag if someone wants to ID it (I've seen it before on other things). As per fabrics this is 100% wool (flannel) and it still has a very soft hand that could even fool someone to say 70/30 cashmere. Per construction I'm not the best judge of that; but, I'm sure BF has a bit less handwork than TB.
    Man of the other suits this season are all winter weight heavy wools. There are a few seasonless suits (grey herringbone) that is pretty much a similar fabric at $2700 that Thom charges $3800 for. However, that about tops it out as Thom has much finer wools that are up to $5,000.
    The hand of the cashmere seems just as soft as Thom's; but, just a slightly different texture due to the different knits. Thom's are also hand framed in Scottland.

    Okay THIS is actually what I wore out today to shop around for rings and watches.
