thanks for the deets, M.
I would not get a suit out of it but I love it for a tie.
Serge hasn't shined on me yet, booth.
Highly recommend Escorial for suiting or sport coats. Comes in a variety of weights and weaves. The mohair blends are a little too light weight for my taste.
It's similar to Golden Bale in that the value is the nature of the natural fiber. Like having superior ingredients when cooking. Tailors and wears really well. Sheds wrinkles naturally.

I agree with Despos regarding the Escorial. I have severial pieces in a variety of weights including one piece of coating from Taylor & Lodge that weighs about 650 gms,. It is soft like Golden Bale and, in the lighter weights, like the Carlo Barbera for Lesser jacketing, and I don't see why it would be any less tailorable than either of those.
I have a few items in Escorial- a pure Escorial navy suit, an Escorial and mohair navy suit and an odd DB jacket. Pure Escorial is amazingly pliable and molds to the body like no other fabric.mohair blends are fine but the roughness mohair imparts take away the key pleasure of Escorial
(The shirt is light blue)
Very nice. Love the tie--deets?
looks nice. are the jacket and tie ground both charcoal?
Both tie and jacket are navy, picture quality is not the best.
Tie is Sam Hober
GET ME A BETTER PICTURE!
per your recommendations, i am using a solid light blue shirt, instead of the stripe, with this combo.
