    Interesting. Curious what changes you're going to make when the two aren't exactly the same.
    Initially I thought that they are about the same. Anyway, I like how it looks.
    It will be a 3-patch single-breasted sportcoat. The current one has hip patch pockets only and is RTW by Sartorio, which is already too small for me.
    Cool! Source?
    It is here.

    This looks good but I don't think whnay. has the trousers for the jacket. Will you do 3 patch?

    He does via Ambrosini (This info is all in the Rubinacci thread, btw - I'm not stalking Whnay).

    I'm contemplating 3-patch at this point so it'd be a 4 x 2.

    It is here.

    Thanks!

    Sounds fun! I think I see some ties in Ed's future from these Tweeds...

    There are really great fabrics over there. I have a couple of swatches from them also. If I don't forget and have a good lightning (we have a terrible weather here in Moscow), will make photo.

    +1, just when I thought I was out, they drag me back in.

    I was all content with the fabric I have in a box above my closet. "I don't need any more sport coats," I said. Then that turns up.

    Does the fabric come with selvedge?

    Also, speaking of selvedge, maybe one of you guys would know where I can find some selvedge raw denim?

    No, there is no selvedge on the cloth that I got.
    They are all quite nice and it is quite difficult not to order a length.
