    Are these worsteds or flannels? I can't really get a sense of the surface texture from the photo... I quite like the middle cloth.

    Another vote for the middle swatch, with #1 coming in second.

    Interesting that you guys suggest green. I may go with that. Usually, I prefer linings to be close in color to the fabric. But Arnold suggested a contrasting one for my dark gray herringbone, and I really like the purple we picked. So for the tan one, I went w/ dark red. Part of why I was thinking tan for this one was to match the colors of my school. I need to ask them a pic w/ dark green and maybe navy.

    Pliny, I like number two for the texture and color, but it may be the least CBD, which seems to be your preferred or necessary style.
