No experience in really heavy fabric as I live in tropical weather. You got excellent suggestion from BBB. +1 for the moonbeam. It is my favourite fabric for winter here. Amazingly soft and comfortable. Many sexy patterns too. Another big plus to me is that it wear warm but not hot. So get a lot of wear when the weather turn cooler. One caution is it may not be warm enough for chilly winter in UK.
It's a joy to deal with Patrizio. Cannot be happier with the tie quality. Charcoal linen standard and brown printed silk 5 fold. Patrizio also kindly offer a free upgrade to 5-fold after some discussion.
