Good news and bad news regarding the Racing Green Fresco with rust brown overcheck. My cloth guy checked my store and it turns out it is actually a Rangoon, which makes this cloth even more special and wearable in the summer. Those who were interested, please PM to confirm your interest. Have 30m. Navy glenplaid Rangoon is also available. Same 5m.

Only Lange among the big brands uses a sterling...
Still have some meterage remaining.
Also, any interest for a custom run burnt orange WBill linen? Either solid or patterned (glenplaid, windowpane, houndstooth etc).
Comes in 16 oz and 20 plus oz varieties. I wear the 20 plus with no problems in weather under 15 degrees.
W.Bill has some very nice bold tweeds. Cashmeres as well.Or Hardy Alsport? (the real deal tweed one, not worsted)
