    My tailor once made pillow covers from some leftover escorial jacketing I had.

    Those are good buys, but you'll have to find a smaller guy to buy them.

    Thanks everyone. Gonna see about a jacket for the gunclub. I wear a size 36 so probably doable.

    I want to commission a 'casual' suit for the colder months. Ideally something that can also be worn as separates. At the moment I'm thinking of either a patterned or non CBD-colour flannel (beige?) or a heavy cotton blend corduroy in either dusty olive or tan.

    Grateful for any thoughts - any other colours or fabrics I should be seriously considering?

    100% Flannel for my money. Nothing sexy about this rec, but Minnis Flannel has some great lighter shades.

    Paone makes me odd jackets out of 1.8m (wool cloth) and I am a US50.

    I have wanted to do this with a deep blue flannel.
