    I agree but I think the real stars are the two cloths like Vox's suit (what I would call a mini graph check though "spot effect" gets the point across) and the 13oz chalk stripes in dark grey, mid/airforce blue, and brown. If I had more closets, time, and money, I would order DBs in all of them.

    The Harrisons are great too...

    Yes, the grey is good but the blue and brown chalkstripes are superb. Mr V. is having the brown chalkstripe made up.

    I look forward to seeing the brown chalk. It should make up very well.

    I have the green one ... and the umber one. Who is the idiot who dares not like them?

    Beautiful squares. It's almost impossible to successfully wear something that beautiful.

    Hey Vox - trying to send you a PM. Mind clearing your PM box?

    Was checking out the Steven Hitchcock links from vox's 1st post: oldog/oldtrix, no boutonnière?

    Those pics are of SF member 'Butler'.

    If you you look really close, you can tell that the fits are slightly trimmer than those of %. Slightly [​IMG]

    Ha, good eye! I thought I had recognized the grey facial scruff...

    I've always loved the look of this but been leery of the heavy weight.

    A&S have a very similar house flannel made by Fox, which I think was somehow inspired by a LL member's project. That one is only 12 ounces, and may turn into a 3-button jacket and trousers for next winter.

    It's been very comfortable, but I appear to be less subject to fabric-initiated heat stroke than many.
