    Breanish is not a good candidate for anything involving trousers.

    Thanks for the nice comments ! Antonio Panico's showroom is a bit nicer than the one you see in these photo's. It's a tailor residing in the Milano / Como region whom T4, myself and a few others have been bringing to Holland for a couple of years now, mainly catering to members of the Dutch styleforum. Gianni Lovadina. No internet presence whatsoever. Quite a competent tailor and a very nice, reliable gentleman. And at a very very good price point. Apart from local Italian clients he does some bespoke work for a few high end stores in Milano, and he travels with some frequency to a few European countries. Given the downturn of the Italian economy he is now considering more overseas trips. When I have time I will make a thread about him. His work recently also got fearured in a Dutch magazine called Quote as the editor of the bespoke section saw Gianni's work when he had some pants made by Salvatore Ambrosi, and ordered an overcoat from Gianni.

    Maybe not for your taste, but I am very happy with the one Breanish jacket I have. Obviously not built for hard travel or shooting, but it is light, soft, and as comfy as a cashmere sweater.

    In a thread a number of years ago Chris provided some examples of why he doesn't like it. Then again some other tailors love it. I guess one just has to judge for themselves. I have one Breanish coat made by Chan and love it. Soft and comfy.

    Hi, would like get some suggestions on my next acquisition target.

    Here is what I have now:
    1) Minnis fresco 7/8oz light gray 2-piece (for summer)
    2) QX navy 11oz 2-piece SB
    3) Minnis fresco 8/9oz 520 navy SB odd jacket
    4) H&S Crispaire navy 3-piece SB
    5) Harrisons navy linen DB 2-piece (trousers to be done)
    6) loro piana pow charcoal SB 2-piece
    7) lesser 8/9oz medium gray SB 2-piece
    8) moonbeam SB odd jacket with Harrisons flannel trousers (work in progress)

    Any idea on what should be added? I wanna stick with Harrisons, lesser, or Minnis which I have easy access and I am satisfied with the quality and price. I live in Hong Kong so I do not need clothing wears too warm. I am thinking a dark green odd jacket for casual. Or brown suits?

    ^ Maybe a brown linen suit with patch pockets that can also be worn as an odd jacket.

    Looking for a solid navy with gray windowpane flannel that is a little heavier than the 10 Oz fox flannel. Any leads? TIA
