    Is that the gray with blue flecks?

    No, it is actually blue with little grayish tone in it. NOBD posted detailed pictures in the donegal suit thread.
    GDL,what cloth did you go with for your donegal suit? I remember you posting a picture and it was more blue than navy.

    Some Moonbeam samples.

    I am not really into sport coats, but these are [​IMG]

    This cloth screams flaps to me.

    +1

    That's the one I ordered...

    Well done.

    62015 is the cloth I used for my donegal suit. It doesn't have grey tones in it, but rather teal and red flecks. The base is a strong and rather vivid blue (not navy). As I said, it's rather flashy so be aware of that if you haven't seen a length of that cloth. Not conservative by any means.

    How do you think it would look as a SB Sport Coat?

    Is 62015 a 14 oz or the heavier cloth?

    I wear it as a sport coat (actually have not worn it as a suit yet) and I like it but, again, it's not as versatile as a navy coat.

    I am getting it for a SC and don't want it to be navy,I have enough navy coats but I see your point. The use will probably be very limited.

    Thanks, guys. Flaps it is.

    E, I've got a bunch of linen samples I can show you when you're in town.


    I have the 511 (about the same shade) with flaps and kind of wish I'd gone with besom for a cleaner look. I wear it often with the flaps tucked in.
