    Thank you, this OTR manufacturer is exactly the type of thing I'm looking for, very reasonable prices, and indeed very precise measurements that seem true to size at first glance.
    Huh. I always assumed an individual consumer wasn't allowed to buy straight from the source, good to know I was wrong.

    Although I'd have to make a student account? Very odd. Asks for student number and course number.

    Have you seen the fabric book for the Zegna CashCo?

    Gentlemen,

    How would you style a bold windowpane flannel such as this? A gray flannel base with charcoal panes.

    https://www.harrisonsofedinburgh.com/collections/harrisons-of-edinburgh/flannel

    Fabric #: 39360

    I'm trying to imagine a no-frills (2 button, jetted pockets, notch lapel, classic shoulder, moderate lapels etc) 3-pc single breasted with a simple single breasted vest but can't quite get my head around it. The safe way out of course (if you can call a bold window pane safe) is a 2pc Double Breasted .......

    Any takers?

    Alan Bee

    You can't really infer anything based on the website's sample.

    In general, I’d say your physique is better suited to a three piece, so that would get my vote.

    LS, I suppose thats where we employ some imagination, no?

    You are perhaps one of the most experienced on this thread when it comes to cloth so I'm counting on your sixth sense. Could you at least hazard a view? 3 Piece or D/B?

    Thanks E.

    I'm trying to imagine a 3-pc here but in my minds eye, it gets quite busy. Even with simple styling.

    Double breasted slims him down.

    That check is fairly chunky. I think it would work better as a sport coat..... Double breasted or 3 piece would be doing too much.
