I'll see what I can do. It is something from Scabal - and I think Chris has maybe enough for another jacket. I know he bought the last of it from the mill. I wish I could get a good picture of it. It is a copper / rust / tan / brown barleycorn. It is rather spectacular.

, if you can find out the exact fabric, please let me know.  I'm starting a project while in England in a couple weeks and I'd strongly consider the same cloth.

Steed?

I am expecting a similar adventure thread Murl smile.gif.

And one final note - I think there is something nice about going in "fabric blind." I feel like tailors have their preferences with respect to fabrics. I listen to Chris and generally commission stuff which he recommends.

Do you know what you are looking for in your first commission Murl?

It's coming....football match with Cleav, visit to Steed, meet up with Shaya from ET, meet up with Harry from HN Ties, and a little Saville Row exploring.  Should be fun.

 

I planned on going in blind.  I know I'm getting a SC...that's about it.

Just be sure not to spell it Saville Row with the locals smile.gif

It's a shame you cheer for the wrong side; otherwise that's an awesome trip.

Mine is a mid brown W Bill.

Since then I added a gray herringbone tweed sport coat and a mid gray flannel suit. I should get pics of each into this thread. Each piece has been nicer than the previous.

You certainly should Patrick.

And Sprout, it is a very, very different different fabric from Patrick's SC. Patrick, I believe, got WB Phoenix 14827 (http://www.harrisonsofedinburgh.com/collections/w-bill/phoenix). The fabric is a small-scale barley corn in a mid-brown. The phoenix is very smoothly finished. Mine is mid-large scale, it is a more of a rusty color than a brown color, it contains more variegation, and it is a bit less smoothly finished.

We are still a ways away from seeing anything (at my behest). I don't foresee the jacket being in my hands for at least six months, or longer. Want to thoroughly wear my first suit so I can more easily identify which changes, if any, I care to make.
