thats how it is and its a rich brown which does not show in the pic.
the right lighting is key
That would make a good towel for the SF meet up.
While I'm agreed with the general consensus that #2 would be the top choice, is #3 (red window pane) really that bad? I ask because I want a 3-piece SB suit in PoW checks, and right now the seller has only a (light weight) fabric which is a dead ringer of #3. Thanks guys.
A few things I picked up at Britex in SF. Top is a wool cashere blend, can't remember the name on the selvedge, great hand. From top to bottom in the second pic, green/grey twill for trousers, wool/alpaca houndstooth for a jacket, and the suiting.
Here are a few photos of my just -arrived-yesterday London Lounge Corn Shetland tweed herringbone coat. It was made in a 3 roll 2.5 with hip patch pockets, 3 horn buttons on the sleeves, natural/shirtsleeve shoulder and chocolate brown Ermazine quarter lining. This really is a fantastic fabric and my wife mentioned that this was her favorite thing I've purchased in the past year. Tough to beat that! It worked well while strolling the grounds of Blue Hill Stone Barns on this cloudy Fall morning. As you can see, I had a 9 month old accessory for the day.
Beautiful coat and even more beautiful child. Congrats on both!
That's an absolutely lovely coat and a great fabric. Peter's work? I also dig your arm decoration, but I do feel we need to talk about junior's tie knot. For starters, it needs to be at the front. :tounge:
Thanks guys! Yes, it was made by Peter Lee who did a very good job at having virtually no padding giving it great freedom of movement. Very comfortable and the fabric is fantastic. When the LL fabrics are on they are tough to beat.
Slewfoot, great stuff all around.
I need to get rid of some fabrics
you are worse than me, hahaha
LOLz. I bet there are a lot of repeats.
