    Why you no like?

    Minnis 0520 is now the Official Style Forum Fabric.

    Or so I assume.

    My preference for the 500 makes me even more of a pariah.

    [​IMG] With of course, the mandatory picture. I must say I was quite surprised at the colour of the wheat fresco. It was much less yellow than I expected, and has more of a caffe latte tint to it. Nonetheless, it seems to take to daylight very well and I'm looking forward to wear it in the summer. This will become a soft 3-patch DB...

    ^ Good stuff! I also like that color a lot. Just be sure to get it as unlined as possible (perhaps with a lightweight cotton shirt lining) and fairly loose fitting to promote air circulation. It still wears a bit heavy in the summer with no wind as I'm sure you know.

    ^That was the plan. I'd like as the minimum of front lining necessary for the inner pockets and covering up the canvas, and get some lining in the sleeves so as not to catch my shirt. All the rest will be unlined.
