I have been on a plaid suit vibe lately: The houndstooth with tan overcheck: http://img130.imageshack.us/my.php?i...0622281hp2.jpg . Closest to actual colour on my screen. Also got a raglan coat made from this fabric. No, I do not intend to wear them at the same time. I ended up getting two pieces of this english sik wool tweed. One with green and the other with orange. Got a suit made from the orange (two trousers, one plain front, one pleated - pictures to follow) and this raglan sleeve coat. more pictures at http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=19957 Got a quilted lining in the upper part. Any comments and suggestions for future are invited. italian linen: . Boat pocket . Closest to actual colour on my screen. Tan wool (+ cashmere ??), linen and silk. Should have bought more fabric for two trousers. Very luxurious but appears not very durable. . Closest to actual colour on my screen. . Boat pocket . handmade buttonholes

Just ignore him, that's what most of us have learned to do.

EDIT: If I haven't said it before, that coat is really sexy.

Wow that is a sea of Plaid. You have gusto, sir. I could not pull off a plaid-suit. Then again, I'm not a huge fan of plaid to begin with.

I love it, especially the trenchcoat!
And that blue is rich - don't like the "boat pocket" though IMO.

I only like subtle checks. That tan suit is a good one.

Jovan, no need to be so rude to kitonbrioni.

Hmm, it seems I misread him then and jumped the gun. Apologies. But no offence, I have to come to expect a fair amount of ignorance from him.

That's harsh, dude. I like KB's posts. Not all of his posts are long informative essays but the aggregate content that he's contributed has been valuable.
