    Thanks. There have been some small refinements here and there but it's all tough on the tailor as I've been consistently dropping weight throughout the process.

    Here's a shitty bathroom pic. The pants fit cleaner than the pic; I have to pull my pants up a bit.

    PS: Pardon the shoes, Manton. My CBD Vass aren't in as yet.

    Are the sleeves too full?

    they are south of my elbow. I've already discussed with my tailor and will be slimming them down.

    T thats a nice looking rig. Your first Fresco? How do you like it? You think I could get away with it April-June and Sept/Oct? Maybe in a charcoal grey.

    Yep, it's my first so far and i'm really liking it so far. I don't see why it wouldn't work for those months.

    My tailor LOVES it. I'm probably going to get a mid-grey made up next spring.

    Possibly the nicest plain pink shirting I have seen - cotton with a dash of wool:

    Thanks again GC. And here is a similar one in purple from Tip-Top (with a higher wool content): [​IMG]

    Would the wool content make it a shirt for the cooler months?

    Trini my apologies, may have misunderstood - is this the Minnis 520 or is it something else? I like the look of this cloth very much.
