Does anyone know the current cost of a yard of nice shirting linen? In preparation of the summer months (ahm horrific Texas heat), I asked my shirtmaker, Ripley, to do a linen shirt for me. However, he is claiming that the cost has somehow skyrocketed and is about $75 a yard. Is this correct? Seems a little high... but I may just not have a clue what quality linen goes for. Instead, he recommended a cotton that has the texture of linen... any thoughts? I believe he was quoting Shirtex linen (from Canada).
