    That's a lovely shade of brown indeed. Congrats and wear the "Slewfoot Fresco" in good health for many years to come.

    Anyone familiar with the Harrison's Mersolair book?

    I'm curious as to whether the 26722 is pure linen or the linen-mohair blend. Cheers...

    FWIW, I have a navy (yes, more navy...) odd jacket in the linen/mohair Mersolair and the fabric is nifty.

    Just ordered my first MTM suit (not online, but from a local tailor) in a lightweight striped blue cotton from Holland & Sherry. The fabric looks very nice but I don't know how will it perform.. Do you have any experience with Holland & Sherry fabrics? I wanted a seersucker but this one looked nicer so I ended up choosing it. Looks like a quite cool summer fabric anyways.

    RDiaz Which book / fabric #? In general H&S cotton tends to be a touch expensive, but not a bad cloth. Others may differ.

    I should have taken note of the fabric #, right now I have no idea and I can't find it on their site. The 2-piece suit is €525, so yeah, perhaps a tad expensive for cotton... it felt nice nonetheless.
