    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    PB Universal is the only book I know of that has a heavier weight mid-grey twill. There is also Dugdale, but thats a bit lighter at 13/14oz, have you considered a mid-grey fox flannel?

    Do they have a lot of those? I've occasionally seen samples of odd things, but I never know if they have an actual program going.

    No website they are very old school email or call them or get your tailor to request the books.



    It must be a recent development Lovat launched a few new books. I presumed this will be a regular program because my tailor are carrying those books.

    This might be heresy on here, but I actually don't like flannel. It gets misshapen very easily and takes no time at all to look rather haphazard. If I had 70 suits I wouldn't mind so much, but I don't, so yeah.

    I recently had the same issue with finding a mid grey twill in heavier weights. I almost ordered one from the pb universal book, but frank directed me to a length of heavyweight cb for lessers he had in the shop that's just been sitting there. So far it is excellent, but I will most likely order a suit in the pb universal in the near future.

    kool, def my fav color for suits. Would u go lighter than 511? I considered the 546: had trews made up in it, but decided it's too close to a bone white for a full suit.

    I think minnis 300 flannel is the lightest i'd go. 546 fresco isn't the right shade of any color for a suit, "bone" is really the best word for it, good for business cards

    HOLY SHIT. I knew he had this length and I went in to buy it and he had a fitting ready in it. I guess it was yours, you mother fucker! I'm at least glad it was you and not some other bozo!

    It is funny because I said to Frank, that bastard! He said, no, no, he's actually a really nice guy, a good guy to have that cloth. :)
