Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 1100

Wouldn't mind seeing pics of these LL regrets.

I've liked all my LL cloths. Even the heavier tweeds, I find, are wearable in Northern California.

They are kind of expensive, but you're partly paying for Alden's ability to create a nice, narrow range of fabrics where every choice is good. This tweed he's thinking about running looks fantastic.

A lure makes it authentic, man.

As others have said, even in standard more conservative patterns, the weight is ridiculous and renders any garment made from it an occasional piece. I also don't understand the fixation on overly large patterns. I'd like to go back in time and have a couple of my LL suits made up in standard cloths in similar patterns from one of the common cloth mills/merchants.

I have only funded two LL cloths so far, a suit in the Agnelli Tweed and a jacket in the City Gunclub 2, but I find both to be among my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. I have no issue wearing them due to the weight. Maybe it is due to my location, but I find them very useful and a pleasure to wear.

Agreed. I like my garments from LL better than other mills/merchants as well.
I wish they had more offerings in lighter weights though.

Gentlemen, what are your favorite go-to cottons for casual, heavy duty chinos? Brisbane Mos? I've heard praise of Caccioppoli as well, but would prefer if it can be bought online.

Cheers,
Soren

PS: Just to contribute to the discussion I love my LLs. I think their cashmeres (Etna and Everest) are quite spectacular, and – contrary to some of their worsted offerings – not insanely expensive. It's a lot of money, yes, but compared to, say, Harrison's cashmere which is double price but half weight I find it fair.

The one cloth I wish would be remade is the LL triple check. That one is unlike any I have seen and I'm not really sure why it hasn't been re-run as people seem to ask for it regularly.

Caccioppoli. Sorry.  Brisbane Moss does not have very heavy weight ones.

Thanks for your input. Do you happen to know of an online supplier? Would also love to see some photos of it and of garments made up smile.gif

^ I believe Jodek in BHills is their agent, best way is to have your tailor contact them
