    Looks very good!

    I finally took delivery of the several lengths of HFW Crown Classic I had ordered. Most of them are pretty boring standard cloths (in a good way). Maybe I'll take some photos later.

    Nice, but not flannel. Probably a little too bright for me.
    Very nice. Fox is where my mind went first when I started considering flannels. On the other hand, I didn't even think of Minnis - I'll try out both before I make a buy. Thanks, guys!

    HFW has a really nice chalk striped flannel sold under their Martin & Sons label. I think its about 400 grams.

    Slewfoot's special Minnis Fresco run, on top of the regular brown Fresco:

    I plan to have my length made into a three piece suit: one pair of pants, one SB jacket, and one DB jacket. The jackets will be styled to allow them to be worn as separates.

    I am with Trini, the next run should be a slate blue/grey fresco.

    Exactly how will you style the jacket?

    It came out the slightest shade darker than the test run they initially made. They send me a photograph of the two and it was very slight. The color variances though on this newer one seem to have more contrast which was what I was most after in the first place. Keep in mind the photo I took before was in natural light right next to my window on a sunny day. I've definitely noticed a difference when it's indoors and outdoors which I find intriguing.


    Thanks for the comparison of the two and helps show why I wanted a more vibrant brown.
