That's precisely what I was trying to get at. Good point.
The perfect basic suiting:
And on the foreground the perfect basic jacketing:
I hope all to be soon funded
I think that's a bit extreme. Donegal can make a lovely odd jacket.
What's the number for the navy suiting? Looks nice!
Of course it can. I agree. Not all donegal is the same and I was just talking about my donegal and why I didn't like the bond tweed.
Well of course I haven't seen yours so I'll take your word for it, but I was imagining a donegal on a similar scale to the Bond barleycorn and can't see a problem with wearing it as an odd jacket. Of course hairiness is a big factor, as well as scale. Bond's barleycorn look's quite smooth.
If you look at the picture of bond standing you will see why I don't like it. The color and the scale don't create any contrast between the top and bottom halves. You can fix that with color, but it makes that is still only a half solution to me.
Thanks, I have carefully selected that fabric, as I love the depth of colour (to be fair of many of the blues in the H Lesser books). It is n.30976 from the 11/12 oz book. The grey is a sharkskin n.30708 from the 9.5-10.5 oz Super 120 plus cashmere book
Tough to say, but probably right around the same.
That's from the discontinued Hardy Riviera book.
Really nice looking cloth. Someone should get them to re-run that.
It will be very nice if someone can organize a run.
Do you guys know the reference?
I'd be in if there was a rerun.
You would have all of SF in if there was a rerun. I'll commit to a length right now. Who's with me?
This is true.
