    And some more winter suitings

    A heavy Harrisons flannel that I already posted a while ago in this tread together with a newly acquired vintage covert coating. I will have the latter made up as a 'casual suit', probably with flap pockets and a Martingala.

    I'm a bit late to the party on this one, but responding nonetheless. Greenfield has both the 100% Cashmere and tweed-ish/twill LP Storm System fabrics--I had a great 3/4 topcoat made in grey cashmere, and it is my favorite winter (and even fall/spring) outercoat. Goes with everything, is light as a feather, warm, windproof-but-breathable and well made. It is MTM, not bespoke, but fits a treat.

    For all the love 520 gets around here, I think 511 is the best from the Fresco range
