    Nothing else in fall/winter weight with a blue over check, but there is a dark brown pow flannel with a rusty burgundy over check that I'll break out soon as well as a killer H&S victory flannel plaid in double breasted.

    What is the verdict on micro gingham, to be reserved for Italian tablecloths? I just bought two on a whim (green, black).

    Beautiful suit as always aportnoy.

    I have the same questions about gingham and some about tattersalls too. Anybody wear tattersalls with pinstripes/chalk stripes?

    To me, microgingham is fine but anything bigger says I saw Victor Cruz do this in GQ.

    That sounds like an odd country/city combo.

    I have one tattersall shirt and I rarely wear it. guess the safest thing is just solids with it.

    @aportnoy - superb, as usual.

    that tie is excellent. i tend to shy away from ties like that, where the medallion is so large and plentiful, taking up far more space than the ground, but whenever i see them used so well, i regret that i pass up on them.

    also, the fit on the suit, as i noted in WAYWRN, is dead on. :slayer:

    ---

    @tdude - very nice. who makes the tie?
