^ aren't they discontinuing the Dupioni?
post #10382 of 12492
Don't know but it is in this summers book that was just released

I have a navy Dupioni from Isles Textiles and I'm not sure of the provenance of the cloth. Maybe Smith's. It's from several years ago.

On jodek's website I see silk # 3993-4000 as discontinued but maybe there's a new book and the website has not been updated. I'd be curious to see the new Drapers book and at the cost of the 100% silk.

I'm curious about this as well. Would appreciate an update.

Thank you - would really appreciate the references when you have time.

The light colored stripe is on the opposite side on the lapels as the other pieces of the jacket. The pocket pipes are cut on the bias and disrupts the flow of the stripe pattern. Patch pockets would have been an ideal opportunity for pattern matching. Don't want to diminish your appreciation of this jacket but the cutting should respect the cloth.

I always have a client pick trousers to wear with an odd jacket before he orders the jacket, even if he isn't buying them at that time. Helps to know how versatile the jacket will be.
Many thanks Chris. I noticed the cut of the lapel is not ideal, but it is acceptable to me. The treatment of the pockets is problematic. I didn't require them to match the pattern in the first place (they are slanted and crescent so much less likely to be matched I assume), but did hope they do it in a symmetrical way...I can live with those problems anyway.

It would be a fun jacket anyway. And more importantly, it is China. Only few people would know it is for boating. I will be quite safe.teacha.gif
BTW, I wear tweed at my desk. I also wear brown suit to meet my clients.

The tweed I also love. I like the luxe tweed in fully cashere. You mean that too? But strictly reserve ot for cold days in weekend outside the city in my DACHA that is on RUBLEVKA.

Do you have cold days where you are in China? Or are you wearing this warm jacket also in the heat?
People here like these too.

Summer liabilities about to be funded:

Air force blue cotton linen for a suit
Brown linen for trousers
Italian jacketing that was the closest I could find to the Armoury check/Hardy Riviera

Thanks Despos,

 

This leads me to my next question, does anyone have a trimming or half yard/meter of Simonnot Goddard Chambray (with poly) for sale. I have 4 collars to remake.

I think Cantabrigan had some available at some point.

DP.

There were several batches of the SG chambray. Finding the exact one might be tough.
post #10395 of 12492
It was from Grunwald if that helps. I am relatively certain it is the poly blend.
