I like the burgundy lining myself.
3240 rings my bell.
a shot lining
one side dark green
one side dark blue
it will give a nice depth of colour
Thanks guys! Still not a lot of love for tan though, huh? Hmm.
T4, what's Harrison's t559? A shot silk that had blue warp and green weft would be nice. But if you mean blue on the right and green on the left, for example, I think that would be to Joker-esque for me.
Edit: Switched "no love" for "not a lot of love." I had missed that forex had said tan was his second choice.
it is more like warp and weft of a different hue
so one side is predominantly one colour
and the other side, the other colour
Here is the color green I had in mind from a jacket I own.
The tan is too light IMO. Do they have a darker one? How about a brown or copper brown color?
That's nice, PSG, as are your other suggestions.
Thanks for bearing w/ me, guys. T4, I think I now understand what you mean: One fabric, but when viewed from the right it's one color, and when viewed from the left it's another. Is that it?
PSG, NOBD, etc., Chan says that's their darkest green. And while they do have a darker blue, it's midnight blue.
I may pull a Foo here and still get the tan. But that may be a mistake. As mentioned above, I have been turned on to the contrast linings a bit. Here are my other coats from Chan w/ their linings:
By the way, it's AKA, or A.K.A., not A/K/A. I don't know where you got the idea that you can use a slash instead of a period.
The tan would be tough to pull off for the long term. I feel like it would feel too "trendy" after you wear it a year or two. I'd seriously consider a chocolate brown or russet color. Makes for a nice contrast while complimenting the earthiness of the green.
Recent arrivals from the London Lounge: one Shetland tweed jacketing, with a lovely milk chocolate overcheck, and an RAF blue/grey PoW Brisa, which is a Fresco-style high twist cloth, but a little heavier. Colours closer to life in the first picture.
These cloths look and feel outstanding, and I'm looking forward to having them made up. Not cheap, though, but worth it for these designs.
Nice looking cloths. I have hesitated to pull the trigger on LL in the past because of price, but not that my commissions have to slow down, I think I may end up splurging for one of their cloths.
Lovely stuff! I grabbed the corn shetland herringbone and the blue with chocolate overcheck as well. I would have grabbed the Brisa if I wore suits more than once a month these days. It was a strong offering from LL all around. I had the corn shetland made up and should be arriving this week. Can't wait!
They are expensive, but worth it at the end of the day when you see one that really strikes you as they are one of a kind.
