    I'd guess so from the shade of blue.

    Looks good except that I'm not too fond with "key button hole" shape on the lapel. But that's my preference.

    Ed, do you have the fabric id for the woodhouse? Looks much lighter than navy, almost like a darker royal blue. Do you have any shots of it next to a classic navy (if not, could you post pretty please! :p)

    ^ also, what are SF thoughts on having a sports coat made in a herringbone of this shade? I have lots of traditional navy, so this seems like a nice and versatile alternative.

    Cheers

    Barathea is the most traditional, Dugdale brothers has a whole bunch of great fabrics on their website. My DJ is an 11oz midnight blue and I'm very happy with it.

    Does anyone have any experience of the modern tweed fabrics made by Dashing Tweeds (or indeed have any available)? I am rather tempted by several of their designs, and I wondered what the quality was like...
