^ I believe Jodek in BHills is their agent, best way is to have your tailor contact them
Note on LL fabric runs, there is usually some fabric left over so you dont necessarily need to commit to a set amount in order to get the fabric and can just email michael and ask him to be put on a "waitlist" once its been woven. Also, while LL does put out unique cloth and most of it has been great in my experience (esp their shetlands), many of its offerings are too heavy for their intended purpose, or have similar offerings available from the usual cloth merchants...
LS I sold my length, I didnt like the way the light blue looked in person, color was too loud to be a "city" GC, but the hand was very nice. The darker more brown gc available in minnis worsted alsport was more of what I was looking for
The hand/finish of GB is nicer than other 13oz cloths IMO, but I think you'd be better off with smiths botany or lessers ordinary 13oz instead, especially if you'll be throwing the suit into a work rotation. The GB could be a nice alternative to the formal books if you want a nice navy DB that you can wear to evening events that don't call for black tie.
Might also be a good idea to check out VBC, and even LL which recently did a mohair offering, maybe they have some left
Don't be thrown off by the weight, the lighter weight mix isn't as stiff as the heavier stuff and sort of flows better. If you want the heavier stuff also give Harrisons Evolution book a look, it has 100% kid mohair offerings
Pliny, have you checked out cape kid from harrisons? Swatches ive seen were really nice, but it is expensive
I have a linen SC with unlined sleeves, no complaints
No need to source your own cloth, tell him to order something he likes from either lessers smiths or harrisons books at his tailor. I would not buy cloth on ebay, if anything it should be sourced from the merchant or mill or someone on this forum with a reputation for honesty
^ no, tell your friend to get a solid plain weave dark grey or navy suit, or both if he can afford to
