Is the bottom one a regular Fresco, or where does it come from?
I believe old Woodhouse stock that Rubinacci bought up.
Bugger. It's a great colour for a summer jacket, but LH is a little over budget.
That makes sense.
A great rare pic of the Dwarf.
Odd jacket in Minnis 9/10 mid-blue:

I'm not sure that they offer this anymore, but perhaps one might have luck with one of the infamous "jobbers." I hope that's helpful.
jeez thanks a lot. nice!
IIRC the Finmeresco blue-grays are gray than blue compared to 0520. I think there are at least 2 different shades, which I noted down for future reference, but you have to look for yourself.
This maybe of interest to you guys in this thread, clearing out some of my stash, tonight/tomorrow will be putting up for sale the following, all about $50/yard
dark brown 14-16oz fresco (2 yards)
blue/black fresco 12oz (4 yds)
navy mohair spring/summer weight (4 yds)
vintage reid and taylor tweed large format gubclub, about 17-18oz ( 3 yds)
charles clayton "denim" silk/wool (3 yds)
arthur harrison wool grey/black herringbone, 14-16oz (forget how many yards, got it for an overcoat so at least 3 yds)
I'm going into terminal Fresco envy...
That blue/black fresco is the shizz.
To those who bought Slewfoot's special run, what will you make? Mind to share?
Suit, patch hip pockets, reg'lar old breast pocket.
Coincidentally, both Slewfoot's Minnis tobacco brown fresco and Will's cream flannel by Fox arrived the same day. The richness of the brown shows up better in vox's photo than mine taken at night.
