    Thanks for organizing. I am considering making something like this.

    The color looks about right. The suit shown above is probably linen, but I prefer the handling of wool.

    I will talk to my tailor next week. How will the shipping be arranged? Will Minnis ship to each buyer directly?

    Correct. Minnis will ship directly to each buyer. I'll send them a full spreadsheet next week with everyone's address for them to fill in shipping charges.

    Perhaps on occasion. Only when I can't find something specific out there like this. We'll see how smoothly this all goes first!

    PMed. I'd probably save the fabric for summer of 2013.

    I hope this goes smooth and we can organize more special runs in the future. Kudos to Sleewfoot for making this happen.

    +1. Have put myself down for a good suit length and more!

    Edit: a custom order in air force blue should be next.
