    This would probably be the order I'd wear them in:

    Light blue
    Medium blue
    Pink
    Red
    Green
    Burgundy

    The last 3 are all pretty close though.

    Light and Medium blue, primarily for me. I think I'd be open to a light brown or pale green stripe.

    On the side, I have this Brooks Brothers buttondown tattersall shirt, it's a simple solid navy grid on a white base, the squares are maybe 1x1cm and the fabric is a pinpoint oxford I think. It's getting along in years and I'd love to see such a fabric offered in MTM or OTR. I don't see it in the current custom offerings and I can't remember if it was offered in the past (probably was as it's a basic pattern). I enjoy a pinpoint OCBD for business wear because it doesn't get frumpy by day's end and this pattern seems incredibly versatile to me, I even find myself wearing it with a block/thick striped tie when I'm feeling a bit more trad.

    For reference, imagine this but with navy instead of red/blue:

    We're going to finally run a proper hopsack in Navy. Question is styling?. No Shoulder Padding? Patch Pockets? Full lining or Half Lining?

    Suggestions? I have a basic idea of what we're going to do, but thought I'd put it out to the community first.

    Medium blue
    Pink
    Grey
    Burgundy
    Green

    I'll cast my vote for very minimal padding, a triple patch with no flaps, and half lined.

    Is this a suit or a jacket? If jacket I agree with the above. For a suit, id prefer flap pockets on the bottom and welted on the chest like your typical suits.

    No shoulder padding, patch pockets, lined only in shoulders and sleeves, and a very light canvassing in chest. You should also offer matching pants with it.

    Cold be a possibility. But would most probably end up selling them as separates.

    That's what I was getting at. Offer the option of buying the pants too, if you were so inclined. I would potentially be interested in a hopsack triple patch pocket blazer suit from you guys.

    I won't be buying because I have a true hopsack sportcoat from SS I like quite a bit, but I'd say patch hip pockets, barchetta chest (like your current offerings) and I do like the idea of offering pants as separates. Minimal shoulder padding and light canvassing. Half-lined.

    I like medium blue and pink. I wouldn't mind trying burgundy as well.

    Pretty much align with other gents here. Patch hip pockets, barchetta chest and minimal to no shoulder padding. I would buy the pants too.

    Do you have medium gray hopsack? I would buy a medium gray hopsack suit from your full canvas program.
