Conservative/recommended Scabal books

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
To the cloth buffs out there: If you had to choose among Scabal cloths for a CBD suit, dark grey or navy, plain weave, sharkskin or other conservative weaves in a 3 season weight, what books would you recommend?

not a cloth expert, but having just looked through many books iirc the Heroic bunch was simple/not glossy...it is 280gms.

In the style of our first Super 100’s collection, brought out in 1967, which was Scabal’s first Super 100’s ever ; Scabal comes now with a modern version. Lighter and with new designs but complying with the same high quality standard and with the special soft finish, the new collection offers a fashionable, elegant look. For this Scabal has abandoned out all the newfangled and controversial chemical substances and relies on approved natural traditional treatments. With 61 articles and a diversified combination of high fashionable light stripes and checks, designs with very strong contrasts, modern micro-designs, semi-plains and elegant discreet dark shades, the collection offers real versatility.

Probably Noble House. If you want CBD, why are you going with Scabal? Harrison's/Lesser is probably more boring- Scabal is more known for "designer" cloths.

Meeting a new tailor at Scabal's. I didn't want to complicate matters for the first suit. Thank you for the recommendations. The Heroic book looks reasonably old-fashioned...

The only conservative Scabal book I've ever seen is Shetland.

Riverside - if you are looking for a Super 120s, Eton - if you are looking for a Super 130s

Thank you all. I guess I will have to see the finishes in person. The patterns seem conservative enough, no? Despos, are these English-made cloths, do you know? Edit: At least some of the patterns...

If your going to Scabal take a look at the Westminster book. This is English made.

most of their cloths are woven at Bower and Roebuck in Huddersfield. you would have to ask about exceptions to this. in the Heroic book, look at 702923, blue herringbone or 702893 postman blue bird's eye haven't used this cloth but like the look of these two

Big Ben for (colder) three seasons. Conservative, but too heavy for normal people.
