My tailor seems to put cuffs on pinstripes / chalkstripes and plain hems on everything else.
Sorry for the delay - 33.5cm long and 11.5cm wide.
Do these belong to anyone here, or has anyone else had the Linen Cotton Canvas made up? I'm tempted, colours are great and the weight is attractive, but looking to get some practical user feedback.
Yes, legit - I've ordered a few lengths from them, and they were delivered reasonably speedily and as described.I do wish, where they note there is a flaw to a length, they'd provide further details / photographs of precisely what this is.Also - if you see something you like grab it. I hesitated on a length of Solaro last week and someone else grabbed it....

I've listed up a few heavyweight vintage suiting fabrics in B&S, just popping up a few photos here in case anyone is interested:
As the autumn / fall swings around for those in the Northern hemisphere, how about some serious old-school suiting? For those who don't know, Super 70s was one of the first 'Supers' numbers and was some of the best cloth available 30+ years ago. I have four bolts today: 1. Bulmer & Lumb / Harrison 2080 worsted flannel in a dark grey. I think this has recently been brought back by Taylor & Lodge / Dugdale, but this is the original in a ~16oz weight. 3.5m length with a...
Yes, ideally red and green. Shouldn't be too tough if Luxire has another colourway and can presumably ask the supplier.
