I don't love it. It's a bit too sedate in both colour and texture. Just my $0.02
Is dark blue nailhead wool a good (stylistic) choice for a Navy Blazer?
It's kinda rough and S80s quality, so I guess it should be sufficiently non-suity.
I dunno - nailhead sounds pretty suity to me. Any pics?
Pretty much looks like this:
Is nailhead generally considered a suiting? Not a jacketing?
That's def a suiting.
If you’re looking for something w/ surface interest, try a hopsack instead.
Crap, thats the closest thing to jacketing I found there. No hopsack, I was hoping for that, too.
I see what you mean, though; thanks!
Maybe you can find Loro Piana N16987. Picture may not look like it's navy but it is.
From my favorite range of jacketings at present.
A lot of people were making Fresco blazer-suits a few years back: does anyone have any opinion on or experiences of such a suit? I've been thinking of ordering one as a kind of flexible travel suit, but I'm worried that I will hate fresco as a blazer, probably because I think linen is all-around superior for summertime odd jackets and trousers.
You are right. I find my fresco to be worn as a two piece suit all the time.
I have one in Minnis 0520 RAF blue and I love it. My most versatile and favorite suit. Jacket works as a blazer, and I do use it that way. I like it so much, I'm having another made in 0511 mid-grey.
I am looking for a dark grey (not charcoal) mid-weight suiting fabric, but I can't quite find what I am looking for. Any recommendations?
