    Do you have a suit made-up using Harrison Fine Classic?

    That's a really nice suit. I suppose the navy fresco in that sense could work quite well as an odd jacket from the suit.
    thanks for the help Merino.

    I have both.

    I think my fine classic behaves better. But the lesser is more suitable for the hot days even at 11-12oz.

    Has anyone had a sportcoat made up with Harrison's Mirage? Any opinions on how it makes up, hand, drape, etc.? I'm thinking of using it in place of Minnis fresco for a spring/summer jacket. Is it only limited to those seasons or could it be used into autumn if a dark brown?

    This is the Mirage I'm thinking of using--brown with a pastel blue/lavender triple windowpane (instead of solid brown 0518 Minnis Fresco):

    Any opinions on this particular pattern/color or on Mirage, generally?

    If you want something more common and less stiff, I do find leser formal range pretty good. In particular, the 11oz wool and mohair range is pretty good.

    I have tried midnight blue dj and I dont like it.I much prefer the black tie rig consist of black sb and cream db.

    There are several patterns in the Mirage that can pass off as autumn colours; if you want I can send a few pictures to you as I have the book.

    Although Mirage is intended for summer jacketings, it would depend where you are based. If you are in a humid country like mine, I would prefer the Fresco compared to the Mirage. Drape wise, the Mirage drapes nicely based on the 7 jackets I have seen made up from this book.
