    it looks like green/olive to me, but i prefer the green color over brown in this particular look.

    I like the texture on scarf just look at the detailed pic. i just looked at your whole look on WAYWRN, which turned out I don't like the scarf very much. I was expecting scarf less chunky

    Brown is great. It does look olive, which seemed out of place against those brighter colors.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it is navy blue worsted wool.

    I would go with a twill or sharkskin. It is too cold now for a fresco or hopsack. I was wearing a 13 oz in the office and I was still cold. :freeze:

    Do you have any issues with serge getting shiny too fast?

    Thanks - what's your opinion of the Escorial? Would you get a suit made out of it (not that color obviously)?
