2008 window check: Grey and Navy
This fabric is a super 110, English made, wool-cashmere mix. Both fabrics have the same red and blue subtle window check pattern. The navy is a great shade of solid dark navy and the grey is a very nice dark grey. Both colors are unique in that, although solid, the weave is in a glen plaid pattern so if you look at the material closely (esp the grey as it's more visible on the grey color) you will see a very subtle glen plaid pattern making up the solid color base. The red and blue windowcheck is quite subtle, but not so much so that you can't see it. A very unique fabric available in a very limited amount. Two quick photos of my own suit in the navy window check are shown here to get a rough idea of how it looks on a suit. Better photos will come in the Lookbook in the near future, before August is finished. (the flash washes out the richness of the navy base color)
For reference this fabric is called Navy windowcheck or Grey windowcheck.
