Yeah it's way too light, it's only 6oz. The pea coats inherently work well in heavy cloths as well I think. There's a couple of nice all wool Dormeuil cloths at 22oz which are great or you could do a wool and cashmere that would be lighter say 17 oz. there's a mid blue wool and cashmere I have been wanting to make into a peacoat since last fall, maybe someone will go for it this year.

Thx, makes sense, maybe something somewhat unique for early autumn.

I love the fabric, I could definitely be very happy with a suit in at least half those colors and patterns.

Again, thanks for the info.

 

What about the style below? Is it in USD 3000 range as well?

 

When you mention peacoat, are you referring to the fabric, or change in design and style?

A peacoat really is a short coat, stylistically and build wise it's a different from this jacket which aside from a few cosmetics is basically a sport coat.

For coats we generally use heavier overcoat cloth and heavier inter linings.

The weight would normally seem to indicate that but I don't think that's necessarily the intention with this cloth. I think there's just a race for ever finer, lighter and softer cloths at the higher luxury scale. This is certainly not a wardrobe builder or a beater suit. I don't have one myself so I can't attest to how it wears but I would imagine the cashmere makes it warm for the weight and the silk would give it good relative strength.

Is that Darrozze Armagnac in the background? I could probably be convinced to order something for a glass of the '81 St. Aubin D'Houga.

Molloy and Sons tweed three-piece.

This is the last suit out the door with the old David Reeves label, thats a thousand labels used over six years so I suppose thats a thousand suits done.
