    I've seen that green with blue overcheck on several occasions. It seems to be rather popular. I would say it and the top right are my favorites of the bunch.

    Perhaps a lukewarm soak instead? If you put it in a basin, you would get some insight into how it bleeds.

    I guess next time? Would still like to get some vibrant colours in the bleeding madras.

    That might be a good idea for a group purchase. Their minimum length for a commission is 100m, and price is a tad less than $10/m. I wouldn't mind some of the navy blue checks.

    Re: Dugdale, I can vouch for their heavyweight moleskins and cords. They are strong, soft and drape very well.

    Did you get all of those samples from www.scotlandshop.com? I've been looking for a brown POW like in your photo and when I sent Lovat an e-mail a couple of months back, they said they didn't have anything similar in stock.

    After several weather delays (wind, snow, rain), the natural light pics.

    All pictures of swatches are taken on top of London Lounge x Lovat brown herringbone shetland

    First column: Moon lambswool, Moon lambswool, Moon lambswool, Marling & Evans lambswool (all way too soft for my tastes)
    Second column: Moon shetland, Moon shetland, Moon shetland, Moon shetland, Moon shetland, P&H Hartwist
    Third column: Harrisons Moonbeam (way too soft), Harrisons Saltire (way too soft), P&H Glenroyal

    Some suiting birdseyes

    Thanks to @Slickman for the recommendation.

    Compare to this shetland-y tweed version. GIANT birdseye weave from Ardalandish. Very striking.

    How would this look as an odd jacket?
