I only buy cloth that is otherwise inaccessible to the tailor. I don't think you generally save money buying cloth. For example, NSM didn't have access to H Lesser and Smith's in the beginning. There were limited runs of cloth from LL and etc.
All things equal, heavier has better drape, warmer, less wrinkles and presumably longer lasting (I haven't gotten there yet). IMO the differences in warmth, going from 13 to 16, is greater in flannels than regular worsted.
Fortnum & Mason made shoes?! I only know them for tea. Is it a different F&M?
The price for the cashmere almost sounds too good to be true. Hats off if you can get the real McCoy at those prices.
I'm surprised you guys had bad experiences with Isles Textiles. I bought quite a few lengths from them a few years ago, including some well priced close outs from H Lesser.

It's about 7oz for single width. So about 14 oz equivalent for the regular double width cloth.
The balmoral monk is quite unusual. I've never seen anything like it. Do you have a sketch of the design? How is the strap positioned relative to the balmoral throat? BTW are they remaking your first balmoral as a seamless?
What are the two other pairs you are having made?
I too was skeptical before I tried it. So don't knock it till you try it.
