Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 698

post #10456 of 11675

I'm sorry to ask an ignorant question. And I'm sure the answer is somewhere in this thread, but I wasn't able to find it. Is there a source from which I can get Drapers fabric? Fabric, especially good fabric, is really marked up here in Seoul. Like...I'd end up paying close to 600 dollars for a Drapers wool-linen blend (the cost of jacket - cost of CMT).

Can you post a photo? The best of those were great. Some of the ones that hung on were really dull.

Didn't know they did tailoring canvasses, but I thought they didn't sell direct or online?  Kenton Trimmings and Bernstein & Banley sell the widest range of tailoring canvasses and interlinings/pocketings selvyt etc that I've seen online.  Kenton tend to be cheaper too.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I like flannel and the Moonbeam book, but I'm looking for something tougher on this occasion (it will take a beating).  

 

I think Manton had a Blazer Suit in worsted flannel; that might be a possibility.  

 

But I rather like the idea of having a 'serge-like' midnight navy blazer made up, to have a blazer in the most traditional configuration.

I want to buy some jacketing from drapers, but they don't sell to individuals.

How does one go about procuring fabric despite that?
