3. E.Thomas produced a beautiful fabric a couple of years ago in a subtle herringbone donegal 90wool/10cashmere fabric that was breath taking. If you would find a similar fabric and make sport coats in navy, moss/forrest green and/or dark/chocolate brown with a Neapolitan cut, I might have to purchase them all. Please see attached pic of the navy fabric. I tried to hide the vendor affiliation in the pic provided. Let me know if it violates the rules and I will delete it.
That is a gorgeous fabric. Would definitely be all over a true navy herringbone jacket like this.

Here's the brown version. I need a navy, brown and dark/bottle green version of each in my life.

thanks. I find the white specking distracting on the brown herringbone but just my opinion; for some reason it seems more subtle on the navy jacket you posted earlier.

It's a tad more subdued in reality. The specking is actually tan. Here's another pic. But definitely more visible in the brown than the navy.

actually, owning both those jackets (and the brown being my pic actually), they're different.
the brown is actual donegal tweed, though it's not a heavy tweed so it's wearable in only mild winter weather. no herringbone pattern.
the e.thomas navy faux-donegal herringbone is fantastic. soft, beautiful, textured but just looks navy from afar.

Gents, it's that time of year. We're working on FW20 - actually I'm behind a bit with placing fabric orders.

So what would you like to see for FW20

Kindly remember not to post pics of products from other forum affiliates!

I’ve been fortunate to grab most of the greatest hits, but I think it would be cool to bring back some back with most updated Neapolitan, such as the first moon gun club tweed from FW17/18. And probably the gun club from the next season too (red overcheck).

Thanks for clarifying. I had the navy but let it go as the fit wasn't spot on. I have something similar from another maker, but not in a cashmere blend. I remember the cloth as being very soft and rich in colour. In any case, I'd love to get my hands on sport coats in those fabrics.
