It's not about price. Ray deals with tweed, linen and overcoatings. The guys at Smith deal with worsteds. The two premises are within walking distance but I don't think Ray keeps worsted patterns at his place. He has to send your request to the Smith guys. It's easier for you to go direct to Smith and deal with people there who handle worsteds on a daily basis and have such patterns/pieces/rolls within arm's reach to send to you.
