The L 24 is the typical weight that most RTW garments are made from (single Ventile). I have an older Maharishi - yes Maharishi - shooting jacket in L19 and I had a parka made in it too and much prefer it over the L 24. It is a bit heavier and more bombproof but still would be suitable for a trench or mac. Problem is L 19 has fewer colours available so I don't know if the stone or cinnamon is available in it.
I believe you can buy directly from them; they have a contact form on the website. In the U.S., Wiggy's sells Ventile directly but he has a limited selection of colours. I have purchased from him before. Just call him and he usually answers the phone.http://www.wiggys.com

How about Ventile? It is cotton and very weatherproof. It can be purchased directly from the factory. It comes in a variety of weights and colours. It is all but waterproof when its in double form. Only drawback is that it is difficult to hand sew. It also requires a specific thread and double lapped seams. But, it will last forever, is relatively light, breathes and is also windproof.
PM him and see what happens
What widths and lengths are available?
Doesn't Manton have a thread a blazer suit?
Interesting topic. I find myself going in cycles alternating between suit wear and more casual business dress. Overall, when I am commissioning suits I am selecting more "country" fabrics such as tweeds over worsteds for and I am favouring odd jackets and trousers over suits now more than ever though I generally am not going tieless. I have been following a program of moving to a boot only footwear rotation. My last six footwear purchases have been split equally between...
Corduroy trousers: absolutely. Corduroy odd jacket, yes but you will find more polarized opinions on this item on SF.
IMHO the Carmina is a nicer boot from an esthetic viewpoint. The sole will look no different than a leather soled boot unless you have a penchant for sitting with your feet up on the desk. Completely appropriate for business casual. Of course, the AE's are shell so you have to decide which you prefer. I'd take Carmina anytime over AE but that is just my opinion. Depends on your budget and preferences.
