not quite what you are looking for but the dugdale white rose saxony has some checks that look somewhat similar to this years huntsman cloth:
There was a lot of interest here on the Breanish POW tweed that @dopey was organising . I wonder what ever happen to that. It will be great to get this off the ground.
Derek, if there is interest, I think this could easily get done with Dugdale....the idea has been languishing on LL for 6 mths w/o even a comment by MA, so I have to assume by now that he's not interested for whatever reason. Take a look at my full post here:
the idea is for a worsted charcoal suiting with a wide rust or chestnut chalk stripe that looks like flannel so it will be easier to wear year round. Dugdale already has a similar charcoal chalk stripe worsted fabric that looks like flannel so all they'd need to do is substitute the stripe, and their prices are excellent as is the either 11 oz or 13 oz fabric quality (I'd prefer 13 oz). All we'd need to do is approach them with enough interest to make it worth their while
it's seriously elegant suiting
this is the inspiration - window of TieYourTie shop in Florence (theirs was flannel):

Agreed. Though does it have to be Breanish? Not sure if the mill itself was part of the delay on that project. If I recall, the cost was up there as well. Not that there's anything wrong with this project as-is, but I'd be really curious to see what another mill like Lovat, Islay, M&E or even Dugdale might be able to do.
A slightly more outlandish/casual idea would be to see a Donegal version from Molloy & Sons.
