    Hi guys, thanks all for your patience! As you know having a bespoke cloth woven up, especially when we have to pinpoint the exact shade and get a whole bunch of people to agree on it, is no easy or quick feat. Add to that working with a supplier who's not the quickest at email...

    Anyway after these couple days, I'll assume that everyone's okay with the new darker shade. Excellent! So I will start sending payment info today, so please make the payment as soon as convenient, and we will get this show on the road next week! Start the countdown to an awesome green suit right now... :slayer:

    Definitely... I'm waiting for a sample to be woven up right now. Will also reply to your PM about the Celadon watch and other cloths you wanted.

    I'm currently waiting for samples to be made for a few of them. Which one did you have in mind?

    This is correct. Sorry as well for any inconvenience to anyone. I wanted to hold off taking payment until after I could get hold of an actual woven sample of the cloth to be produced AND had everyone agree that that was what they wanted.

    Not too late Tony, in fact just in time. Will reply to your PM as well today.

    To anyone else thinking of hopping on board for this custom run, the last day to join will be this Friday. I'm looking to put the order in by Wednesday, but I can add in extra length up to a day or two after.

    To recap, this is a 380g W.Bill racing green linen.

    Hey all,

    B wants me to send him my tracking list again as a double check that we don't miss anyone. That list is on my laptop in my office. I'm going to try to stop by and grab it today so we can get payment info out tonight. If you don't get payment info tonight, it just means I didn't have a chance to pick up my laptop.

    Either way, once I get the list, I'll post user names and lengths here and send it to B. Just let me know if I screwed anything up.

    Thanks for your patience everyone.
    Don

    Didn't have the chance to grab my computer today, I'll be sending the list tomorrow.

    I'm currently finalizing the design for this one with Harrisons/WBill. It'll look like how it sounds though, a navy version of a glenplaid, with a mid-brown overcheck.

    You can see the light grey glenplaid with sky blue overcheck that I did in 2013 for an idea as to how it'll look. Same scale of check and everything.

    Order confirmation check for the green linen, let me know if I screwed something up, if I don't hear from you I'll assume this is good to give to Ben.
