    I am having the navy chalk stripe made up at the moment in a SB three piece by Edwin Deboise. Unfortunately he is in NY next month when I am in London, so I won't have my first fitting until December.

    I have seen the Fox windowpane in question, and it is not as bold as the one worn by the guy in the second pic. O/O's suit (first pic) is more like it.

    Yes I have it as well, its a very subtle windowpane. You have to be nearly on it to make it out. This is even harder to do on the gray.

    Anyone have anything made up in any of the LL Fox Flannels?[/quote

    I have the Eden in Paris Flannel made few years ago and absolutely love it.

    I have the Agnelli flannel on order. Looks to be beautiful.

    The blue? I have it also but don't know that I will ever make it up. I have ordered the grey tweed and will definitely have that made up.

    I think they're nice but not that amazing. The new Solbati collection is much nicer imo.

    I love the combination of old and new money in this post.
