Actually cap'n, it's ranked by weight ...

There's a heading 8oz, 9oz etc for each section. i.e. 8.3 means 8oz cloth #3.

By the way, are you still doing buttons? I would be interested in some!

How much would it be to ship the cloth to the UK or Italy?

Shipping via EMS will be charged at cost, approximately HKD150 - 200 depending on quantity of fabric

12.9 Ermengildo Zegna
Material No 15632


Qty: 2.9m
Price : HK$900 whole piece
Reddish brown/blue orange check Zegna worsted woo
notes: Fun and retro. The fabric's palette is quite harmonious, the blue check is a nice, stuble touch. It has a warm reddish brown look from a distance.


Hey yfyf,

Any ideas if 2.9m would be enough material for a full suit for a guy about 6' tall, about a 46R? I really like this one but I think I'd really want it as a full suit, crazy as it is.

It won't be enough. Your tailor would probably want 4 meters. Us smaller guys can usually get by with 3.5.

Thanks. I've never done this before, so I was going by yfyf's OP, which sounds like it may have been overly optimistic. Shame.

Hmm ... I see his little reference chart. Those numbers seem ambitious to me, but he knows Chan's capabilities way better than I do.

At first, when I read your 4 meters, I thought you were making fun of me.

Four meters is a pretty standard length to give a tailor and is more than enough for them to work with. Tailors should be able to get by with less, but erring on the too much side is best. I'd think a tailor could maybe use that length you're interested in for a smaller suit.

Hello chaps, Well, firstly the guide is very rough, it depends on whether or not you have had a Chan suit made or not before. If you have an existing pattern, you can get away with using less. Don't forget that we are talking about meters here, not yards. It's about 0.91 meters to a yard. For example, I just had a suit something made up with just under 3 meters so sometimes it is quite surprising to see what is possible. However, I have my doubts about 2.9m for a 6" 46R ... I don't want to promise anything inaccurate so shoot an e-mail to sales@wwchan.com and one of the knowledgeable folks at Chan will tell you what you can get away with as well as availability, sometimes my information lags behind true stock in the store. O and yes, get a full suit. The world would be a better place if everyone just walked around in full suits all day long. Especially visually interesting ones.

Here's this cloth made up. Cheers to yfyf for leading me to it! It's a great cloth, and very very well-done by Chan, though that does not come across really. Will try to shoot better pics of this sometime in the future.

Nice ... it's really great seeing these cloths come alive as garments, Chan did a great job with yours.

I sent off a memo yesterday to wwchan to purchase 8.13 Silver Scroll Material No: FM50414. How long does it typically take for them to reply?
