Here's a picture of Matthew's jacket:

Was this the Portofino fabric from Delfino?

Hey guys, any recommendations for camel camelhair (one where I can source for CMT) for a jacket? I wanted to use inhouse camelhair but I was quoted something equivilent to 400/meter which I thought was quit a bit too high, or is that normal? What kind of pricerange should we expect for camelhair, and what about cashmere? Kinda want a minnis airforce blue flannel SC, but also considering just going for cashmere, but that sounds like it'd be quite expensive.

 

How much is Harrison's overcoating camel and cashmere?

That's Harrison's camel/cashmere right? Thanks.

Is that a very open weave or just really lightweight?

Bit of both. It's 9oz so it's certainly not cold weather suited, but also not crazy light. I'd describe the weave as similar to airy linen, but with a much smoother hand.

This is pretty accurate, though its a difficult fabric to describe. I have leafed through that book many times and that bamboo just feels different to anything I've held.

I was about to get something made from steed, perhaps I should give this a try. Always been interested.

Oy, that cashmere price makes me cringe lol.

Even if that £284/meter is VAT inclusive.

Its CA60% (Bamboo/Acetate) WS25% (Cashmere) SE15% (Silk). Cloth is expensive compared to other Delfino fabrics. Weight is 250 grms = 8.81 oz

Ask for a wrap overcoat. He talked me out of it but you can pull it off.

I did some Rangoon run a few months back and still have some lengths in blue in stock. Please see scan of the cloth next to a completed standard navy suit. PM me if you are interested in getting some of the blue Rangoon (USD60/m plus shipping). Thanks.
