Heavily discounted cloth (flannel, fresco, tweed, etc.) direct from Minnis and Hardy

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
Consolidated sales thread for J&J Minnis and John G Hardy cloth, nothing excluded

Orders must be in 0.5m increments (supplier requirement). Goods are brand new and will be shipped from the supplier to you, with cloth tags bearing your name. Nothing on these sites is excluded from the discount, including 100% cashmere coating.

Bargain prices as low as tailors themselves would often pay, or lower in some cases as there are no taxes or distributors in between you and the mill to pay.

This is the easiest website to use and is a bit newer than the others http://www.hfw-huddersfield.co.uk/ but please do ignore stock levels. It is best to ask me and I will ask the factory. Sometimes items listed as out of stock are in stock and vice versa.

Discounts already secured are Other prices are available upon request but will be within this range.

Alsport (tweed) $45 US per metre

Dorchester (mid-weight worsted) $40 US per metre

Classic (12/13 oz worsted) $55 US a metre Worsted Flannel in (0651 onwards) $65 US a metre

Crown Classic (Super 100s and cashmere 11/12 oz worsted) $60 US a metre

Linen $62 US a metre

Riviera (light-weight jacketing) $60 US a metre

Flannel $65 US a metre

Fresco (open-weave cloth, excellent for summer) $52 US a metre and $60 US a metre for the heavier (14+ oz stuff)



Airborne & Rangoon are already heavily discounted, as they are being discontinued. They equate to $30 US (Airborne) and $26 US (Rangoon) if ordered through me. This is a hair above the web-shop price so as to account for fees I incur and conversion (from dollars to pounds) of my payment to the company. In the end, however, it is still as cheap or cheaper on account of the savings on shipping.



Also available

Finesse 8/9 oz Super 100s and cashmere PRICE $62 US per metre (Save $34 or 35%)

Savile Row 9/10 oz Super 120s PRICE $70 US per metre (Save $53 or 45%)

Coatings Wool, Cashmere and Camel Hair for overcoats

Camel Hair PRICE $165 US per metre Save $100 or $38%

All wool $80 US per metre Save between $38 and $67

Cashmere $285 US per metre Save $86 or 24%

Casual Collection including Venetian, Gaberdine, Whipcord, Bedford Cord and Cavalry Twill PRICE $56 US per metre (Save $20 or 26%)

Corduroy 22/23 oz and 15 oz PRICE $42 US per metre (Save $12)

Harris Tweed $33 US per metre (single width) (Save $13 or 30%)

Linen & Cotton Linen 11/12 oz and Cotton 8 and a 1/2 oz PRICE Linen $62 US (Save $40 or 42%) and Cotton $30 US per metre (Save $16 or 36%)

Worsted Alsport 12 oz Worsted finished like a tweed $60 US a metre (Save $48 or 47%!)


Orders need to be placed together to maintain these prices, which means that we need about five or six members grouped together by the time I place the order. The only effect this has is to slow down shipping a bit, as you may place your order on a Monday, but it might not be until Thursday or Friday that I have enough other buyers to place the order directly with the supplier.

Shipping usually varies from $40 to $60, depending on what is ordered. Shipping is via insured courier with tracking and no duty or customs will be paid. All cloth comes straight from the supplier in England to you. This is quite a saving on the web-shop shipping fees, which usually start about 45 GBP per order. Minimum shipping fee is now $45 US.


For those who have already placed orders, I have everything sorted out. For those who are yet to confirm, feel free to do so in this thread, in the old threads or by PM. I am simply consolidating everything here for ease.

The length of this sale is not within my control, but as long as orders keep coming in and meet the 6 order requirement, I cannot see why it would be taken away. Also, currency is something to consider. John G Hardy and J&J Minnis charge in GBP, whereas the prices here are expressed, for ease, in US dollars. If the GBP regains any of its strength, prices is in US dollars will increase, but the discount will remain the same. This means, the greatest advantage can be had now, rather than later.

Contact Feel free to PM me or e-mail me at britishclothsales@gmail.com

This offer is open to anyone, so if you know someone who isn't a member, you are free to pass on my gmail address and I can deal with them there.

Some pictures from the Classic bunch, though more are available on the websites above. As you can see, the Classic bunch includes some worsted flannels as well as plain worsteds.















More pictures to come.

I've added quite a few more pictures. There are two without labels. They are a cream linen and a tobacco brown linen. Both are the same weight and quality as the other linen available.

A PM has been sent out to those who expressed interest and might like to be included in the first round of orders which will be confirmed and shipped very soon.

Could anyone give me a good idea as to how much a tailor would typically charge to make a suit from fabric you bring in yourself? I know you would want to get a skilled tailor in order to get the best fit. Any recommendations in Dallas, TX?

I would be interested to know this as well. Except I am in Atlanta, not Dallas

This really depends on your size. I have had customers who only need 3m for a suit and some who have needed 4m or 4.5m. You are best to ring and ask a tailor. Of course you are free to go with the following liberal measurements which are often used to be on the super safe side.

For a suit
Jacket 2.5m
Trousers 1.5m
Waistcoat 0.5m

I am not sure about tailors in Dallas ... but I remember Nick Lopez in Houston getting a mention here, but you might want to ask someone who, at least, lives in the US!

Thanks for the estimates, I appreciate it. Does anyone have any ideas as to how much a tailor would charge? Would that amount depend on the size of the suit?

It depends on a number of things, but not the size. It will depend on the type and quality of construction, how many pieces the suit is and some other factors. Most of these directly affect the amount of labour involved, which is why they can make things more or less expensive.

In my experience, American tailors can vary anywhere from $600 to $4000 (or more!).

Andrew,

I am very interested in the camelhair. If possible, could you please snap a couple of close-up pics?

Thanks

Certainly. Here you are. For reference, the blue cloth is a navy wool. I have it there to give you some perspective. The camel hair is a tiny bit warmer in colour and darker in person, but only slightly. Those photographs were taken with natural light near a window (as can be seen). Best photograph for colour representation

Everyone,

A couple of things:

first, prices have had to go up a bit to cover Paypal fees and some other issues, but only some items have been affected;

second, please do check your private message inbox regularly and do take things seriously. I have had some people miss out on cloth they wanted or better prices on cloth simply because they have waited too long to reply or to pay for their cloth;

finally, please no time-wasters or tyre-kickers! (I make little to nothing on these transactions. If you are not serious, do not ask me to give you an estimate)

Thanks,

Andrew

As a FYI to everyone, a friend ordered cloth from Andrew and was very happy with the service and prices.
post #14 of 54
I've done business with Andrew, incredibly punctual. I would be shocked if he ever had an unsatisfied customer.
post #15 of 54
Will have to echo the kudos for Andrew. I recived one length of the Alsport donegal tweed that was shipped from the UK and a lenth of the gray pick and pick from Australia within one week of my order. Excellent price point and service.
