I've just ordered 280-310 g. fresco in wheat for an unlined suit. It will be SB 3 roll to 2 buttons, patch pockets. Trousers with turn ups and and two pleats. I will share photos one the suit is finished.
Will, thanks. That solves my dilemma. Frsco it will be.

It is going to be my first quarterlind suit. I'm planing SB 3 btts roll to two, patch pockets (not sure about double stitching on pockets). I'd rather go for fresco for it's informal feel but I'm concerned about durability. What is longevity of the stitches on this loose wave? Do you guys have any experiences with fresco and mohair (25% by John Foster) and can give me some comparison?

I will ask.
I don't think any artisan will be happy to make duplicates of someone's work.
