This link may help though it does not give the weaver.

Thanks gentelmen for all the praise cheers.gif

By the way- regarding the cloth - it is the same as Spoo's, and it is green, but very difficult to shoot so the true colour comes out - Steven Hitchcock has written on his blog, how he found the mill:

Snort! I notice that Mr. Hitchcock forbear from naming the mill, cad that he is.peepwall[1].gif  Evidently the only way one can get a suit in that tweed now is to commission one from Hitchcock.  Drat . . .

Shameless plug shog[1].gif BUT i had promised a number of SF members that I would let them know when I had more full tweed suits in ...

I have just added 2 superb 3 piece tweed suits to the website, one with trousers the other with breeks. Both green base colours ( although as Butler said green is not the easiest colour to photograph well smile.gif

Seriously? A full requote of multiple large pics so that you could say, "Superb!"? Please use the spoiler function (the black text box icon above the reply space).

^ Thank you.

Just a quick one, I know Butler has his hands in his pockets but the Rise on those trousers seems wrong to me, or perhaps it's an issue of width - everything just looks too tight in there. lookaround.gif

 

Otherwise, that fabric is just awesome, made my day.

And Butler, the beard and mustache really flatter you.  In that suit you look like the chair of some small, but very exclusive college's philosophy/Classics department.  Well done, that man!
