    I'd definitely say it's blue-gray more than brown grey.

    Sigh. The search continues then.

    If anyone knows of a brown glenplaid with green windowpane, get at me!

    I was initially looking for a brown one (without overcheck).

    Some Acorn shirtings I received last week, two for the office, one for a summer OCBD. I'm still debating on barrel or French cuffs for the stripes. Might go one each way. [​IMG] And a horrible picture of a lovely Hardy SC swatch, this order will go out this week. [​IMG] EDIT: picture resize

[​IMG] Grey Twill and Shep check at home with me impatiently waiting to be made into something beautiful. the Twill will be a similar three piece and the SC will be a sportcoat. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Pants will be a bit fuller with a higher rise compared to the pattern he usually cuts me.

    Have you had success ordering from Lesser directly? When I emailed David recently he referred me to Harrisons and Jodek.

    Trini-

    Will get that pic to you in a bit...its way more beige than it is yellow, as it appears there.

    As far as the order, I'll pm you.
