What intrigues me most about those samples on flickr is how well I think they'd compliment my skintone... a donegal can have brown and red specs in the same fabric, to complement and draw attention to one's own coloration, that a harsh plain navy worsted or charcoal simply can't do. Some of us pasty white folk can have a lot of trouble finding dark suiting that doesnt wash out our faces.

The price is €39euro per meter plus postage and packaging.

I think this is pretty good value - for me the fabric is a bit on the heavy side (545g/m) but I'm still considering to make an order

The fabric looks amazing, and the price is very good value. But 545 g/m - that's like 19 oz, right? That is heavy. Is this fabric meant to be a winter fabric only (worn with a light overcoat), and perhaps for fall wear (without an overcoat)? Sounds like it's too heavy for wearing indoors. Any thoughts on this?

Yeah, it's 18 oz. The Molloys have strong feelings about the appropriate weight for tweed smile.gif. It's definitely fall/winter weight. That said, I think you'd be fine indoors.

Does anyone know the width of their fabric? Are they standard suiting widths - which I understand to be 60"?

 Good question - given the price ($50+/meter), I imagine its standard width.

All their stuff is 150cm/60" wide.
