Yeah, I Understand. You could check with ariston.

Would you call the blue brushed suit currently on final sale AFB?
Lol. I forgot about that one. It's close. More salt/pepper going on than a normal flannel. Great visual texture, but lighter than flannel as it's a brushed worsted. Still a nice cloth.

What season/weight and what color/pattern? Got pictures or samples? I'm sitting here fiending for something new and that could be it.
It's a FW 290 gsm weight.. 100% cashmere at any weight is too warm for Spring/summer. Looking a solid navy twill. Looks like a serge cloth visually. Standard navy blazer, but feels bloody stellar.

Hi,
I just received this one yesterday and the IRL color is the same as the picture on the SP website. I tried to take a picture but my Iphone 5 doesn't honnour it!
thanks very much! post a pic when you can!!
Balmacaan length. Below the Knee. Humphy Bogart Style.
Perfect.
Mash now. You won't be disappointed. Keep in mind they are "dress" trousers and lean more formal.
Do you recommend cuffs for these? I typically do not cuff cotton because no crease.

Tailoring is REALLY soft right now. What we can't do OTR, we're funneling into MTO. AFB is a great colour. We'd have to look around to see who has it in cuts.
AFB flannel for FW would be of interest here also
Anyone interested in 100% Cashmere sportcoat from Di Pray in MTO? It's as lux as you can get. Proper investment piece that will last. We're thinking in a solid navy twill.
We can offer it at $698 USD in MTO. Pretty ridiculous price. But we have to buy up a full roll and would only be able to make 20 jackets.
I'd be in
Update on the Suedes:

Price will be Approx. $598 USD. The quality of the suede is pretty damn impressive.

Any interest at that price? Lowering the price means shittier suede. No one wants that.
This is the trucker you posted a while back? interested here

Although now I gotta know- is it only going to be offered in one makeup or is it full MTO where everyone gets to pick their makeup?

The belt loop on the high rise extended waistband trousers needs to move closer to the button like they used to be. I noticed on my F/W cords and Fresco that the loop is now in an awkward placement. Not sure if that’s a new intentional thing

I don't have anything useful to say but I love how engaged and candid @spiermackay is in this thread. Really great insights and builds a lot of confidence in the brand!
Thanks. Appreciate that!

Alright, so when we can we expect to be able to order the cashmere MTO? And the dugdale too for that matter lol
3 months. That's how long it takes to make cloth. In time for Fall.

Anyone have experience with or pictures of the Minnis POW Fresco that's on sale? Trying to figure out if it'd make a good DB sportcoat or even suit.
Same question. Also @spiermackay when you go to the discount page for these MTO the pricing on several is incorrect (the houndstooth) or leads to the wrong fabric in the configurator.

That's a very reasonable price. I'd be in.

Any possibility for MTO? I'm shorter (5'6"), and find RTW casual jackets run a little long on me.
