Oh, I don't know, but I've been thinking about getting an olive covert cloth suit. H&S Dakota has some nice fabrics. The Drapers Pete posed looks nice.
I have a length of Olive cotton waiting to be made up into a casual suit. I should probably pull the trigger and knock it out for this fall, but I'm running out of time and have a few other liabilities in front of it.

As for the Dakota book, I think its one of the best trouser books out there and have a couple pair of pents that feel like pajamas...

Simon's suit looks shiny to me, could just be the pics, or the cloth is shiny...

I've been going through Simon's tailor series and noticed his suits from Saville Row suits look and fit better than his suits from Italy. Am I missing something?

These are really good colors for covert suits.

Also covert suits sound like the perfect thing for people who want to wear suits but be incognito.

Is he dancing? Must be hot in turtleneck and covert cloth.

I have been looking at that denim blue or maybe an airforce blue covert suit. But I really dont know when I would wear it..
