Five shades of grey

Last week I visited Tip-Top Fabrics in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and learned that they recently received a shipment of Carlo Barbera worsted flannel…in five shades of grey. Weight is probably in the 13oz range. I picked up a suiting length of the darkest grey and a trouser length in a mid-grey. Tempted to go back and pick up another shade of grey before they run out.

I also picked up an end bolt of a navy cavalry twill by Halstead, probably in the 14oz range. Last but not least, I saw an excellent, crisp Drapers gaberdine in classic tan and beige that will make up nicely into a pair of trousers.
