Just wanted to say thanks to @dieworkwear for putting together the fresco run, cloth looks great, look forward to doing more in the future
I hope this doesn't mean my DB lapels will lose their FU status, but only time will tell...I do agree with foo that the package of quality and consistency is key when choosing a tailor, especially a traveling one.

I don't prefer one over the other, they're different. Mistral is a hopsack, L16 only carries one hopsack, it is much more tightly woven and drier than the mistral. The mistral hangs really well and various tailors have commented about how nice it is to work with. L16 on the other hand is very dry and "stiff" so it won't hide mistakes made by the tailor. Both are excellent, I would say for basic suits like dark grey, navy, L16 is your best option together with smiths...
Yes, so far I like it. It is a bit looser than lesser and smiths hopsacks, and of course much heavier.
