They have a phone number on the website. I've called them before.

You could try Twitter too if you use it

This is a holiday weekend in the UK, too. Plus they're probably getting ready for their upcoming US trip. Having said that, I've had conversations with Matthew this week, so my advice would be to keep trying.

Ok I'll try to call them.

I'm trying to set up a time for their Chicago visit so there's some urgency.

@Andy57

If you happen to contact them again this week, please ask them to check their emails!

Was delighted to find today that the had the exact piece of cloth a I want, a large scale brown and tan houndstooth. I went in there thinking I was going to order a Russell Plaid but got that instead. Been searching for just that cloth for a long time.

You were not a fan of the LL Shetland houndstooth?
post #67 of 74
Not that I was not a fan, it's just that I didn't have it and they couldn't get it for me when I asked. However, I do think that what they found is closer to what I was looking for.

Sounds like what I'm looking for, too. Will you post pictures of at least the fabric?

What are you making up? I have 3m of it and I may make mine up as an overcoat one day.

Apparently the LL houndstooth is still available.

I don't know what the fabric was but you can ask them. At first they didn't seem to quite understand what I wanted. But then when they understood they got an overcoat out of a suitcase and when I saw the cloth I knew that was what I wanted.

I am just getting a jacket, though. I think they said it was 18 ounces, all wool.

Wow! 18 oz. After last years winter back East sounds like a good buy. Along the western coast it seemed proof of global warming. Wonder what next winter will bring.

18 oz? IIRC, didn't you say you had no heat resistance? Even if you could wear that outside in a NY winter, what is going to happen when you go indoors?
post #74 of 74
18 is fine for a tweed coat. I like to be able to go out without an overcoat when I can. For some reason, the heat really tortures me in summer, but I have no problem wearing heavy cloth indoors in winter, with rare exceptions. I wear 16 ounce suits all the time without a problem.
