I did received samples from HE Box but it wasn't melton, it was more like wool overcoating. Perhaps they misunderstood my intent from my correspondence.

It's not fancy, but should do the trick. Was thinking of using Navy Slawit to make up a peacoat.

Cant tell if thats linen, but if it is, LL carries a brown POW linen, but the scale is smaller. Also take a look at the ariston books.

I don't do brown. I was thinking a black and grey, or charcoal because it would look awesome over a black turtleneck and my black jeans. It'd be unique that's for sure.

Does anybody know what kind of fabric this Liverano jacket is? Possible styleforum project?
post #10931 of 11429
Silk dupioni perhaps?
post #10932 of 11429
I'd be interested in a navy or medium brown shade of dupioni or raw silk, especially in a loose weave.

There was a spot of dirt on my linen pants so I spot cleaned with soap and a rag. Now the fabric feels coarse and is discolored. Will a hand wash fix it or does it need to be dry cleaned? I'm asking here because I don't know much about linen and don't know if the fabric is permanently ruined, worn down, or just stained.
