    This is beautiful. I would ask what it is but I assume you are trying to locate it as well [​IMG]

    Looks like it was photographed in "blueish" morning light. That will shift colors and "Kill" the yellow.

    As disapointing as it is to get something a different color than you expected, if you take it on it's own, it looks good for a fall jacket. Pair it with blue shirts and blue and green accessories and it should look its best.

    I've received Solaro in herringbone. Initially I thought of doing it as a DB but don't think that will have a lot of chances wearing it as a DB. So, probably will have to make it as SB.

    Should I go with patch or flap pockets for Solaro?

    I'd like it in 3-patch personally.

    Its the same cloth. I just shifted the color balance in RAW

    I have given up on getting it made. My wife saw it and said, Reevolving style, that why are you getting cloths which are more suited to men 20 years your senior ? That doused any fire I had left for the cloth.

    Now, I am wondering what to do with the cloth since I cant sell it on. Sofa upholstery, dog bed, or storage for 20 years ?
