Taylor & Lodge Mohair/Wool blend for Tuxedo

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am wondering if any member here have experience with Taylor & Lodge Mohair/Wool blend fabrics for Tuxedo? The fabrics in question are A190 2 (215gms, midnight blue, 70% Super 150s & 30% Summer kid mohair) and A46 1 (330 gms, midnight blue, 40% wool & 60% summer kid mohair). I am living in Taiwan now and would require something light and airy. How is their colour of midnight blue compare to say Smith's? Also, how do they wear?

Thanks so much lads!

Its great stuff I like it a lot and Tom Ford used it for Bond's dinner suit in Quantum of Solace.

I did this a while back:



It wears just fine and is a lot nicer than Smiths which I have always seen as an entry level cloth. It is not especially airy though. Maybe you would be better off with crepe?

Hi David,

I did read about your special a while ago. I think the James Bond's suiting used in the film is 50% cashmere and 50% mohair; therefore, more luxurious and higher priced than the two fabrics I was thinking of getting. How is the James Bond's fabric colour? I thought it is black? Do you think 215gms is too light and too see through for tuxedo?

Thanks!
