Cloth mills

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi, im in the market for a few suits, and i have a number of fabrics to choose from, from a few different mills.  

 

my question to anyone familiar with fabrics, is, is there a significant variation in quality inbetween the following mills, which mills make cheaper fabrics, etc, etc.  or is this something i shouldn't be overly concerned with?   

 

Really any information is helpful, thanks.

 

 

-vitale barberis cononico

 

-Ethomas

 

-lanificio TG. di fabio 

 

-marzotto

 

-reda

 

-luigi botto

 

-trabaldo togna

 

-zignone

 

-abito

 

-ermenegildo zegna

 

-lanificio ing. Loro Piana

Unfortunately, I know very little about cloth mills though I find it fascinating. You may find useful information in this compendium-of-sorts thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/328245/fabric-brands-ranking. Only a few on your list shows up though. Quoting Badsha from that thread, "It can be quite overwhelming. I don't think there is a quick answer to your question." Best of luck to you.
