    You went for the lighter, classic shade? I'm basically having an exact copy of this coat made up in the vicuna colored pure camel hair.

    [​IMG] Why yes ... how did you guess? It appears he is whispering ... something about a sartorial matter no doubt.

    Some great fabrics in this thread. Anyone know of any good online retailers for a reasonable price? Keep in mind I am a small timer compared to most in this thread!

    I really like this fabric, can anyone recommend any books that have something similar, ideally that are carried by Chan?

    Can you please be more specific and point to the specific cloths, clothing ideas, and misinformation in this thread? We understand that you are better than all of us, but sometimes we just want to know exactly why.

    I doubt he would though. At the end of the day, he's just a mean-spirited asshole, the sort who gets off on being the 'outsider', someone who enjoys standing at the sidelines throwing rocks, and who joyfully derides those who would enforce dogma while simultaneously doing the same.

    This is just trolling. You know you are not in the least bit interested in his opinion and you just want to trick him in to saying something so you can make fun of his bad taste or class anxiety.

    Well the bunny is no fool. He is not marching into your trap.

    Just received some Harrisons heavyweight charcoal grey birdseye from AndrewRogers. It looks great and nothing at all like a stuffy heavyweight fabric. I'll be funding this one as soon as I can because we're dropping back to single digit temperatures this coming weekend.

    Some Minnis midweight navy blue (also from Andrew) is being turned into a two piece suit. The tailor offered to make a shirt shoulder. I dredged through my memory to recall some of what Manton had posted about its construction, and he really did seem to know how a proper one was made. Should be awesome.

    Some really nice stuff arrived and all thanks to AndrewRogers...

    All Minnis... tried the excelsior and savile row line - they feel very nice, although, the excelsior is verrryy light/fine. The Savile row has more weight to it.

    The dark blue is moleskin and the rest are flannel (air force blue, charcoal, brown, blue spot effect)...
