    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 ?

    Is it really that bad?

    I didn't get it from Ed, I got it from a guy in Manchester, England.

    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 ?


    I'll buy it if it's at least 2.75 yards.

    Wow. Pretty nice, scruff. Do birdseye come in different sizes? I have a what I think is a birdseye suit, but with much smaller "eyes".

    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 think you could do either, but I kinda lean toward flap . Maybe because solaro has that sheen to it makes it seem a little more "suity."

    I split the difference and went for flap with ticket pocket.

    Not at all, its perfectly nice. Get it made with 3 patch with dark grey trousers, blue shirt, green grenadine and suede shoes and you are fully SF approved (in a nice way).

    Its just that its more mustardy that what I thought it would be. Also my wife thinks that it doesn't suit my age/personality/whatever and these days I take her advice somewhat.

    Anyways, I am not looking to sell and my posting pics was not a proxy for a FS thread.

    I've seen different sizes. I have one with smaller eyes as well.

    Let us know how you like it. I've been to their site and if it's good stuff I may get some.

    OK -- will do. Not sure that I qualify as an "expert" since I have only ever ordered tweed from here before: http://www.hfwltd.com/a-jgh.php

    Also had my tailor make me up a jacket in some Harris Tweed that he sourced (don't know where he got it).
