Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 724

post #10846 of 12543
Thanks @Mr Pink

I was looking for that mystique but didn't see it online, but I'll see if I can order.

I've got a suit made in the heavy darkish-mid-grey Fresco (0530 I believe?). Jury is still out on whether I love the fabric or not. Some days I do, some I don't. I like texture, but some days I wonder if this one is a bit much.

I do think the weight will make it a good 3-season fabric so long as it's not below zero and windy.

If anyone else has ideas, feel free to keep them coming. I have the dark green Fresco written down as well.

Dopey didn't do anything on the PoW Breanish, so if we can make it happen, we should. Price from Breanish was too high when I worked with them.

I will wear my 10oz fresco suit under an overcoat if its not one of those bone chillingly frigid days. I like it because most places overheat so while it is freezing outside it keeps you from overheating indoors. In the worst days of the summer 10oz fresco feels like 16oz flannel.

I had a couple more fresco suits made this spring and am really liking them (also having a hot summer). Would be very interested in the green fresco as I already have Slewfoot brown and also really like it. Also totally in on barley corn of any colour.

I should add my hot summer is likely like NYC or Boston in May/June.

I'd be in for green fresco.

Correct. I contacted them and got no interest.

The image came out more blue, the cloth itself is grey. It's probably not what you looking for but there was a RAF Mistral recently finished on LL.

Here are better representation of the colour below. May be we should propose to make a blue grey Mistral.

Now I remember u explaining that earlier.  I for one would be interested in either that gray above, or  the bluey-gray in the pic of yours I posted above.   Super  versatile suit cloths.  

 

Tchoy, what weight is the LL Mistral?

It's funny I've had a few people PM me about the blue/grey cloth. The Mistral is 18 oz but wears like 15-16 oz,I can only wear it in autumn and winter here in Aus.

These posts have triggered my thoughts.

Instead of having SF's blazer frabrics (e.g.barleycorn tweed, Huntmans check tweed), I think the forum will benefit more if we can create a regular seasonal offering of 11-12oz fresco like suiting range (perhaps a lighter Mistral), in various designs in each seasonal offer (e.g. plain business colour in September - December; summer bright in March - June).

This should obtain the member's interest more (hence easier to talk to weavers) rather than making stuff which will only be enjoy by a small proportion of this forum.

What do the big-timers think about this?
