What weight were they M-E? 10 0oz or more?
I like that linen a lot, very nice.
Mr. Pink, did you see the Smith's "luxury flannel" book? It has some nice 11oz. Not sure what the experts think of this stuff. It felt really nice to me. And the shades of gray were nice.
I have a pair of trousers from the book. I think they may be this same fabric. I like them quite a bit, but I'm not really looking for a flannel suit. It's hard to justify for San Diego. Our "cold" winter days are in the low 60s.
I'm crossing my fingers on the Lesser's 10oz, but I have my doubts. It's not even listed on the Harrison's website.
Incidentally, does anyone have an opinion of the Minnis Savile Row, Classic, or Crown Classic books?
Whoops. Sorry, missed the "worsted" part of your post. I love the feel of Harrisons Frontier. That seems like a good choice for SD.
LOVE the lightweight woolen flannels from Smith.
Fox worsted flannels from Fox are also lovely..
For sure. They almost feel like woolen which I love about them. Have yet to make up my POW 3-piece. Who knows when that will happen considering how infrequently I wear suits these days.
+10. Love Fox. Pity the customer service is so shoddy.
Yes, I think W Bill has just 1 linen book. I have a small length of the tobacco linen. Let me try to dig it out, and take a photo in the next day or two.
Thanks hst - appreciate the help.
That is very nice. I was thinking of getting a sport coat made of this. But I would really like one with a nice pattern. Does W Bill make patterned linen? Scabal has some really nice patters, but it's very light in weight. If anyone has any recs for a patterned, heavy-ish linen, I'd appreciate it.
Have you looked at the Finmeresco book? I love, love, love the suit I have in it and plan to get another. Patrick said they will have an updated book in the fall that will have grays in it. Wish I'd known the last time they came. I'd have waited for that instead of getting the Crispaire. Oh well.
Porter and Harding blue herringbone
Love the green, blue, orange, burgundy at 4 o'clock. Now that would make a nice jacket. I would have fun with those colors.
This is the most representative of the colour I could get with my camera. The actual colour is a richer reddish brown.
