    You ever get to see Frank? I was in there Wednesday after an emergency "surgery" at my doc down the street.

    +1; not a fan of the one button sleeve, but otherwise looks great.

    I think the breast pocket looks good as is (as does the entire jacket — it appears to be very comfortable and soft), I like the organic, yet restrained shape.

    I like the single cuff button for whatever that's worth.

    So do I, which will be paired with a single button closure.

    So I received this mini black white houndtooth from Crown Classics book couple weeks ago. Now I find it is hard to visualize it into a suit. Anyone has pictures of suits/jackets in this or similar fabric please post here to enlighten me.

    ^ I think Holdfast has a suit that he posted several times, the fabric was very similar to what you have. I have a sample of the cloth and I think it is quite nice.

    Vox had some pics of a flannel houndstooth suit that he had made-up by Steed. If I remember correctly, Will also some pics on his blog, too, e.g.
