    That looks really really good. Does Ercole typically put in some chest drape?

    Looks good all around, Axel.

    You don't happen to know the fabric # off the top of your head?

    I think its 39248 in the flannel book. Dont quote me on that though. It is almost exactly the same color as Minnis flannel 0301.

    Thanks for the reference - really helps to see it made up in that colour.

    I'm thinking of leaving the gray flannel for a later commission and going with the 304 Air Force Blue flannel - DB of course.

    So I thought that with the delivery of a flannel suit a few weeks ago, all my bespoke orders were done and I was out of the game. Turns out I was wrong. I brought my new suit by the tailors today for them to have a look (it was fine) and it turned out that they had a fitting ready for me of a navy SB three-piece in a mohair blend. I do remember liking the fabric and was mulling over placing an order if there was any left, but decided against it. Fortunately (or unfortunately), I forgot that I already had. :facepalm:

    I'm in the market for a mohair. What fabric was it?

    I haven't decided which youtube video to post - 'just when I thought I was out, they pull me back IN!' or 'I wish I knew how to quit you.'

    So what are you ordering after the mohair? You don't need to pretend with us.

    This:
    I have a DB from the earlier version that is referenced-that one is a midnight blue as opposed to this one in indigo.

    No. Really. I am done for a while and am trying to put myself in replacement-only mode.

    Is Fresco 0520 for a sport coat a bad idea? I was considering it last weekend when NSM came to San Francisco, but asked Dino to hold the order until I made up my mind. I was between that and the 0516, truer navy. Given how many navy jackets I have at this point, adding another seemed a bit boring, though I suppose I don't have one in Fresco.

    FWIW, I was considering having it made into a 3/2 roll SB summer jacket with 3 patch pockets and double stitching.

    Thoughts?
