That's sounds like a great cloth, suitable for suits, or just jackets?
Can you compare to Dormeuil's 180s Ambassador, or LP Wish 170. I have a fondness for LP Wish and always like to discover new cloths.
Any photos of the patterns?
It's a shame this thread, or others like it get so few responses. For a forum dedicated to men's clothing, the level of knowledge and experience on fine cloths is disappointing to say the least.
Archives doesn't bring up much either does it.
