Harrisons of Edinburgh Worsted 13 oz
Fox flannel, navy, 15oz
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.
Just received the brown Fresco tonight. Bit darker than I expacted.
looking to have a brown flannel odd jacket made up -- any preferences between or comments on the harrison 39177
and the minnis 0325?
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.
Damn you bumpkins. If you didn't get brown I would have been in.
Looks awesome. Poor timing on my brown linen suit right before this came up...
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.
