    I totally agree, real Blackwatch flannel would be nice (by 'real' I mean not the other varieties of Blackwatch tartans with yellow and/or red windowpane overlay - sorry I forgot the proper names of such tartans)!

    Third, would love some flannels fabrics for MTM, especially blackwatch, and other simple houndstooth and tiny checks/plaids/ginghams. Had a chance to see some Grandi and Rubinelli fabrics today that were simply sublime when it comes to flannel shirting.

    Also @spiermackay , can you shed some light on the chambray fabrics you currently have up on the MTM fabrics? Are they fairly "denimy" if that makes sense, or are they more like simple cottons. I'm looking for something pretty denim like. If so, I might get all three. Just going to wait to make this order until my previous order arrives, still trying to nail fit. Always a moving target for me it seems.

    Just wanted to share this pic fresh from the factory. This is the first sample of the FULL CANVAS suit fresh out of the sample room. The lines on this are simply amazing.

    These are more dress chambray. Slightly casual. I have a proper indigo dyed chambray arriving to us next week which I will post up

    While flannel would be a great addition, I was thinking more along the lines of a broadcloth dress shirt fabric... Something that would be worn under a sweater.

    btw -- that new full-canvas looks amazing!

    Great looking suit!

    This talk of blackwatch shirts reminds me I want a pair of blackwatch flannel trousers!

    That's a very nice looking suit. Questions: 1. What's the lapel width for the various sizes 2. What's the length from back of collar

    The sample jacket you see is a 40R. Lapel is 3 3/4" (9.5 cm). Each size up/down is in 1/8" increments. For example, the 44 would be 4"
    Length on the 40R, is 30" BoC, Each size is then 1/2" +/-.

    Full Canvas is available right now in MTM. OTR, this program is 4-6 months out. This is just the first sample as mentioned before. We normally do 2 sample rounds, 30 days each. 45-60 days production. 30 days shipping.

    I have a suggestion. For your Full Canvas line, you could consider change the style of the suit. For example, keeping the same fit, make it like this MTM that you made:

    Those lapels would look very nice on your full canvas suit.
