Tweed samples, yes.

Tweed bolts, I've only 3 at the moment. (And 3 suiting) Very selective in what I actually buy.

Also, one is being made up in the shop as a jacket. So 4 tweed total.

I agree. I'm a bit underwhelmed as well. But still thought it worth sharing.

I don't disagree with you there. Hoping they will add some more feature-rich information about the M&E ranges and add e-shop functionality...

@jrd617, I have an odd jacket made up in that Lovat I believe and it's awesome. The below photo is from a fit picture I took after a day wearing a navy suit vs. a combination I would actually wear, but it looks fantastic paired with light blue and ecru shirts.

The close-up picture is better quality. The full one on the hanger is still a bit washed out but better than before. Hopefully this will give you a sense of what it looks like made up.

Can anyone recommend any Gabardine books? and what is a good weight for gabardine?
thanks
post #10240 of 10823
Some would say there is no good weight for gabardine.

Apart from that, Holland & Sherry has what appears to be a decent selection.

12 is about right for gab. It's an odd cloth though. hot at any weight. if made too light, it doesn't perform well at all. At 12 ounces, it hangs nicely but it's a niche suit.

I refer this question to the Lesser experts among us. I just came across some solid grey plain weave coth numbered 30306. Any idea which book this is/was from?
post #10243 of 10823
8-9oz tropical. Great book, I have a mid-blue from it that has held up very well for five years now.
