You could also try soaking the shirt with a little detergent in a utility sink or bathtub. I did this and the stitching soaked up some of the dye that the shirt let out. Let it soak for a couple hours.

I'm a bit torn on this sage green suit. My brother in law bought the honey one and it looks stellar in person. Not sure if sage green would suit me tho.

I kept the honey and returned the sage. Sage is nice, but I just knew the honey was more usable for me

Yeah, gonna have to ask the wife if she digs it or not, I'm too torn on it. Love the details like the side adjusters and higher waist, I like the fabric composition, it's just the actual colour.

I am really liking the Sage. Wears like a Grey and I find it to be pretty versatile. I have the Solaro which I find close to the honey in color though. The fabric is fantastic

Just confirming that there are two brown bottolis from Spier and Mackay? There is a brown slub bottoli on the website now, but there is also a light brown bottoli that is sold out?

Anyone have any pictures comparing the two? I think I like the light brown better but might compromise for the slub. Only really wearing it casually. How do they compare?

A few examples. Looks pretty bad IMHO.
And an old post from @Burzan showing that denim. The stitching looks fantastic.

I was thrown off by the white stitching as well at first since the cloth is so dark to start. It seems totally normal as the shirt starts to develop some fades. The pocket still sort of stands out though.

The white stitching is certainly makes it more casual.

Exactly you have to treat the sage like light grey. I wanted a grey suit but decided a full linen would be less formal. The sage fills that req nicely.

The Sage Green and Honey Linen aren't high-waisted. They do have side-tabs though.
