They also used D'Avenza pre acquisition

Is anyone willing to sell 3.5m+ of the London Lounge Agnelli Tweed? If so, please contact me via PM.

Has anyone tried making pants out of Harrison Moonbeam? Or is it really that bad of an idea

Almost certainly, yes.

It is a really bad idea. Moonbeam is much too soft for trousers. They aren't going to wear well.

Got in touch with the Isles Textile people... pretty nice and helpful over the phone. Going to mail me a few swatches of the Icarus that I picked out and then going to go from there. Stay tuned.

This has come up many times in recent years and the consensus is generally that Moonbeam is not suitable for pants.

If you want your trousers to look like pajamas...of course Luca does...he's that cool.

Went and talked to my tailor today about the fabric, told him it was 8oz weight and he said that that is too light. He said it's not enough heft and will wrinkle. He's older asian guy who has had his shop here for 20+ years and does very solid work so I trust his opinion and judgement 100% but I also love that fabric. I think I'm going to purchase it anyways - any opinions or anything?

8 ounce fabrics can be problematic. A few perform very well, but generally the lighter you get, the worse the drape and issues with wrinkling. Outside of summer stuff, I tend to err on the side of heavier stuff, but up to you.
