Is Barathea supposed to feel coarse and heavy?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm having my first tuxedo made, and after some research it appeared that barathea is the cloth traditionally used. I ordered a full suit length sight unseen (I'm on a tight schedule), along with some Super 120s cloth for some other suits. The link to the barathea I ordered is http://www.yorkshirefabric.com/?product=1c3-01-2 . In comparison to the supers the barathea feels heavy and coarse. It doesn't have the lustre and softness of the supers. It reminds me of the cheap suits I had tailored in middle and high school, almost like sackcloth. Is this normal and a good thing?
