  Congrats on the find.  To be honest I'd take issue with the link to the discussion on pre-washing, I believe it essential to do so, it is certainly far better to find out how the cloth will behave before the garment is made up.  Have the edges overlocked before doing so in order to prevent fraying.
  On mohair, anyone know of a proxy for Bateman & Ogden?
Anyone know when the next viccel sale is?
 What is your budget?  If you know your size in Hackett then keep an eye on ebay, stuff comes up all the time.
 Bloody hard to find on a cut length basis though.
 Didn't know they did tailoring canvasses, but I thought they didn't sell direct or online?  Kenton Trimmings and Bernstein & Banley sell the widest range of tailoring canvasses and interlinings/pocketings selvyt etc that I've seen online.  Kenton tend to be cheaper too.   http://www.kentontrimmings.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=82 http://www.theliningcompany.co.uk/catalog/index.php?cPath=33&osCsid=xdatidpqmoiv
Thats £59/metre incl. VAT, you'll hardly get it cheaper than that anywhere.  Get it shipped outside of the EU and you'll get the VAT off too.
 Course they do, particularly Alfred Brown as they're the last real volume weavers in the UK afaik, they can weave a few kilometres of cloth per week, to do that you have to cater to the mass-market.
Warning there is an enormous American charlatan in the above picture.
 Tissue does not mean 'tessuto' in English.  The correct term for this type of cloth is a 'double-sided' cloth.  You are going to have the fancy or patterned side made up and the lapels the plain side.
