Whoopee and m@t, this is interesting. Hwa Seng is where I got those MOP buttons I posted about a while ago, and I've looked over their shirting cottons and suiting wools, with the intention of possibly purchasing some. It sounds as though you guys have some perspective on these fabrics that I lack. So I have a couple of questions, if I may slightly take this off track.
First, are the prices for the cottons in the Gianfranco Fila line (which are sourced from a bunch of different mills) and the Enrico Ferrante line (higher quality and sourced from top mills) reasonable? Also, Whoopee, you mention the Acorn line--which includes some cottons of higher yarn count that 100. How would you rate the quality and the prices? As for wools, I'm such a novice that I have little idea of the quality of the various lines. I know they have Hield, Dormeuil, and a couple of others available in winter-weight wools. What's your take on the quality and prices?
Josepidal, hope I haven't taken this too far off track, and the answers will help answer your questions too.
