I tried getting a custom run going, but there wasn't much interest.

Currently working on a navy houndstooth Fresco, navy Donegal tweed, and a brown silk/ linen mix though. Still working through some sample runs, but hoping for something solid and finalized soon.

I may try to push for that green tweed again later, as I really want a sport coat made from it myself.

Check out the Drapers silk & summer linen book.

Dark brown. Should be very matte and slightly slubby. Fabric is slightly inspired by this jacket on Taka

I'd certainly be interested in buying some Delfino. What were prices for the "blue" book again?

@dww, I'm assuming you've seen the Drapers Estate en Lino, which I think LordSuperb is referring to. They have a brown wool/silk/linen in a similar color.

I'm familiar with the book, but am looking for something with more slubs and irregular character. The sample is being run right now and I should have photos soon.

I'm not crazy about Brown brown, but this points toward a very useful direction.

I like that brown.

Let's not all forget how awesome that green is.

Derek, whose jacket was that in the original picture?
