Reevolving?

New linen liabilities, soon to be funded...

But how can you tell they have strong reasons if they don't share them? They might just be obstinate and unwilling to change even when wrong. Not always the best trait.

I don't think that applies to Mafoofan.

Pretty sure Foo both has strong opinions and shares his reasoning.

I could be wrong though.

(Was not criticizing Mafoofan, he does have reasons for his arguments). Speaking in general of course.

Acorn has been having special sales every day. Today's is a 30% discount on linen, which seems nice since linen is so expensive. Checkout code is ADVENT19. Shipping is free for this month.

FWIW, I find their colored linens to be a little too flat in color, but it's hard to go wrong with white.

That would be convenient.

Wow, so I received the Molloy for Hillside donegal that Dieworkwear posted: http://fabric.thehill-side.com/collections/everything/products/donegal-tweed-lambswool-navy

I am blown away by how nice this stuff is

The perfect shade of mid blue/light navy

Since the Hillside used it on sneakers, I was worried that it would be a very light weight. That fear was unfounded. It's the same weight as the light blue donegal that Molloy makes. About 19 oz

Stock photos. Mine are a little darker in lighting than these

Dunno how exclusive that is... Looks exactly the same as the Molloy tweed we used for the Eidos overcoats this season
post #12508 of 12510
^ The Eidos donegal had flecks of gold mixed in. This one only has light blue and red flecks.

So the Hillside stuff is unique in that sense. Not sure how the ground blue shade of the Hillside donegal compares to the Eidos donegal.

I actually inquired to Molloy a few weeks ago about getting a length of the Eidos donegal. They only have 1.8 meters left or so. Not enough for a jacket my size

Then the Hillside stuff popped up, which I prefer slightly because of the absence of the gold flecks

I should know not to ever challenge you to a fabric swatch analysis contest !
post #12510 of 12510
Heh, I have been obsessed with blue cloths lately

That Eidos stuff is gorgeous. The gold flecks is just a personal preference.

Honestly, I think Mollay blows every other donegal I've seen out of the water: P&H, W Bill, Cacciopoli, etc.
