    I have 3 solid greys coming for fall. One is a lighter grey, but doesn't have the "hatch"effect seen on the above. Might just work for you. Really great shade. I have to hunt down the swatch and take a pic. I would say, save your money, they are 2 months away.

    In the market for solid grey trousers as well. Looking forward to this.

    Medium/dark brown herringbone or tweed, navy windowpane (that one above is beautiful!), and a gun check would be ideal.

    Please, please, please bring in long sizes!

    Just ordered a custom shirt, excited to see how it turns out, been looking for an alternative from ModernTailor for a while, since their shipping prices are absurd and fabric quality is pretty garbage. Noticed the slim-fit ready-to-wears are pretty close to what I get custom-wise (with the exception of a couple inches through the waist).

    Do you have an approximate on what the bicep/half-hip/armhole is on the ready-to-wear slim fits for a 16"?

    This is great. One suggestion would be to move the lapel notches back to a more classic position. This Isaia almost has them behind the head.

    Bicep is 16 1/2", 6" down from shoulder
    Armhole is: 21.5 around the curve.
    Half Hip is: 21.5"

    Hope this helps

    Just got this Irish Tweed Card from a distributor (Not Donegal, but I should be getting those too). Any of these workable? I like the blue & green

    The blue and green look nice in these pictures. Any more information about the tweed (origins, weight, durability, etc.)?

    Most of the samples look a bit too flashy for my taste - it's the two tone nature of it, I think; the contrast is too high, almost gimmicky. The blue and green (3 and 5) appear more muted but it's hard to tell...

    Any response on the possibility of a synthetic or two for custom?

    The more I think about it the more in I would be on a true navy Donegal. These are okay looking, how do they feel Rick?
