Would you be able to recommend something for a grey odd jacket in a summer weight? 8ozs and below..
Sorry. There have been a lot of casualties in that weight, and I don't know what's looking good right now.
What about a solid grey Minnis Fresco? 0511 or some such.
Grey SC don't look good to begin with, 0511 is a suit cloth. The only real exception would be a grey/b&w herringbone, but other than that I'm not a real fan of grey odd jackets.
The Glorious Twelfth isn't dead of summer wear, but might have a few options.
Also, there are black/white glen check and houndstooth in the London Lounge linen collection. (The suiting collection, if you're browsing online.)
Not at all cheap, but good quality.
Try have a look at the Ariston/Caccioppoli jacketing range. I saw some nice grey jacketings with interesting designs.
I am having this grey windowpane cloth being made to a sport coat at the moment not 8 oz but very open weave 100% linen from Solbiati
Tchoy,did u get it direct from Solbiati?
Do any of you guys have your 8 oz suits double stitched or something? I had a fitting today and I'm concerned an overly deep squat could lead to some unfortunate consequences
It's never been an issue for me but I tend to get my pants cut full.
Every tailor I have known runs two lines of stitching on the seat. One on top of the other. There is a special nylon thread that has a natural elasticity to it that is designed to use only on the inseam and waist/ seat seam. We use this on certain cloths.
What you are describing doesn't sound like a comfortably cut trouser
Depending on the tensile strength of the cloth, I would be concerned about the cloth tearing rather than the seam splitting.
Or a type of squat that is typically done pantless.
Can you please keep comments like this in the "How are you squatting today" thread. NOOB!!!
I also thought about Moonbeam, but only if I were to get a windowpane. I was hoping for a POW pattern with an overcheck in another color.
I have the grey Moonbeam with purple/lavender windowpane. I really like it.
Women adore it.
