    Would more or fewer gags induce you to go with the white collar?

    Impressive. If this turns out well, a large scale version in a dark blue/grey colour and coating weight would be interesting IMO :lurk:

    Reid contact details hopefully coming tomorrow. I'm very tempted to just out the email they've been communicating with me on. Don't know what's so hard about the contact info for payments

    I don't want a shade of green that's too yellow. That eliminates numbers 1, 2, 3 and 8.

    I also don't want a shade of green that's too "minty." That eliminates number 5. See spoiler picture for what I mean by "minty"

    I'm thinking of these as finalists.

    The middle one is probably the best. What do you guys think? I will wear this jacket with grey flannels, chinos, and denim

    Thanks for the tip, I haven't looked at this book yet. One question: how red is the overcheck? It looks a little like purple/berry in the pictures, but perhaps that's just camera effect.

    I don't think you can go wrong with any of those, but I feel particularly attracted to the left and middle ones.

    I like the middle a lot I think.

    Looking for devil's advocates, anyone?

    Definitely trying to stay away from this shade too. I don't think any of the swatches I picked are close to this color?

    (Yes, I know I picked tweeds and the Masters jackets are worsted wool)

    Far left one looks great. Have you considered the Calcioppoli green donegal?

    @jrd617, I also like the one in the middle. Of course I also liked the Porter and Harding you thought was too "minty."
