He is picky, in a good way. No problem with that!

Heritage Twist has Frank's name written all over it. Surprise to hear you thought he didn't think much of it.

I wish I could remember which book that was. Whatever it was, he seemed to think it a cheesy imitation of the old robust country cloths.

Does anyone know where this Bedford cord might be from? I looked through Brisbane Moss and Eskdale and didn't see anything that looks like this. But I'm also scanning online, so the online "swatches" might not be correct.

FWIW, this specific pant is Ring Jacket for Beige in Paris, if anyone is interested.

Interesting video by Mark.

I really enjoyed watching him go through the process and mostly the fact the he chooses fabrics first, then decides what type of tailoring (or casual ware) will be made in each fabric. I look forward to the trouser and shirt video….. maybe I can take some lessons from this process and, since I am not building a capsule from scratch, use some of the lessons/processes to add to the current closet.
