As per title, I'm looking for a particular fabric to feed an unhealthy addiction. Jacketing material only, not subtle fine-scale glen check suiting material types. Flannel or tweed only. I'd prefer mid-grey or lighter, cream/tan undertones are fine. I'm looking for something that looks like either of these examples:

There is one in the Dormeuil Kirgyz White book tough it is much greyer than the pics you have posted and the overcheck is also a more prominent purple.

Thanks for that. Do you remember the fabric composition?

60% Kirgyz white, 40% merino. Kirgyz is supposed to come from a sheep-goat and supposedly Genghis Khan used to line his own tent with the stuff. Love the marketing bullshit

I've got two jackets in my store with exactly the pattern you are looking for. One is a Loro Piana wool, probably an 8-8.5 oz... Really nice looking jacket! The other is a Coppley, about the same weight with more of a flannel texture... I'll post pics asap
