    lol, my pleasure.

    the question is, absent the comma, how does one read those first few words?

    1. My God, stitches, ...

    2. My God stitches, ....

    :)

    The pic in the Rubinacci thread of me having a fitting is the Harrisons brown PoW flannel. I like it.

    Very nice. I will definitely have that one under heavy consideration. How are you having it made up? I think I would do a 3-pc SB. Although the DB would be FU and awesome.

    These are the two I am considering. Originally I considered making a Black-white PoW with blue overcheck but now I am wondering if the brown PoW might be better.

    Is this a DB or SB?

    It's single, 2 pc, 3 roll to two. Nothing too crazy. I was thinking of doing the LL Marvin check, or the Agnelli tweed reissue in DB.

    Absolutely and Brown still better, for separates at least. Worn together I'd go with grey or a brown without such a pronounced overcheck. I really do love that brown though. Trousers would look killer with navy sc.

    I like the grey / blue better although that brown / rust swatch does look nice.

    Glen plaid has enough character on its own, I think it's best to stick to a cooler / more citified shade.
