Any recommendations from the current MTO offerings for a FW navy wool sportcoat? I live in Houston right now and want something w a softer hand, and the warmth and loft of flannel. What are yall eyeing? Don't want something too dark but close to navy, and solid (a tonal herringbone or Donegal is acceptable and perhaps ideal).

These are on my shortlist - any opinions?

HMS NAVY HERRINGBONE
HMS-101019-MTO-J
Fabric 100% Merino WooL Super 120's Wool
Texture Plain
Weight 280 gr./ 9 oz.
$550

HMS BLUE HERRINGBONE
Fabric SKU HMS-101021-MTO-J
Fabric 100% Merino WooL Super 120's Wool
Texture Plain
Weight 280 gr./ 9 oz.

Blue Windowpane 340 gsm
$448 USD
Fabric SKU 5372/5-MTO-J (okay, not a solid, but this looks good too)

MOON NAVY TWILL TWEED $500 PS370 2000-48-MTO-J

Abraham Moon - Denim Blue Plain Weave Tweed $548 USD
Fabric SKU NS360 2003-31-MTO-J
Fabric 100% Wool
Texture Plain Weight 360 gms

Abraham Moon - Navy Twill Tweed $548 USD
Fabric SKU PL375 2010-13-MTO-J
Fabric 100% Wool
Texture Twill weight 360 gm

Some of the navy Moon fabrics look nearly black online, which is why I overlooked them.

On the topic of choosing MTO fabrics, they should really consider offering fabric samples. It's nearly impossible to navigate the selection online and get a good idea of what they actually look like. Some of them have pics of finished jackets, but I've noticed the same pics used for several different fabrics so that can't be trusted either. Being so unsure about fabrics is the main reason why I've held off on several orders.

Looks like you have really nailed your fit! Good on you.

If one were to nitpick at all, I would say, left sleeve on both jackets could come up 1-1.5 cm, and (just judging by the pics posted) the DB could stand a slight take in in the waist and skirt (from waist to bottom of jacket) Neither of these things are crucial. Fits look really good on both the sport coat and suit.
Thanks for the feedback sir. My left shirt sleeve looked shorter probably due to my bulky watch lol.

Love the look of this jacket.


Can these be ordered MTO or have I just missed out?

Many thanks
