Trying to rummage through my existing fabric bolts to figure out if there is anything I can use for commissions. The three below are the survivors. The Harrisons anniversary tweed (brown/orangish with the blue checks) would make a great travel jacket and I think it is a go go.

The other two are from the Scabal shetland book. The brown with green checks would probably serve about the same purpose as the Harrisons, so I think I'm likely to hold off for now.


I really like the sage green tweed in theory, but I'm not sure what I would do with it in practice. It feels too light in color for me to get a ton of use out of it, and it might clash with a blue shirt. That being said, the fabric is pretty great, with a ton of nuance and saturation. What does one do with sage green tweed?

Let me know if you're ever looking to get rid of this.

I wasn't thrilled with any of the fabrics that I was planning to make up as a summer jacket. I'm going to be in Paris in April and figured that I could spend a little time at my tailor's workshop looking through fabric books, and therefore it was better to hold off on the summer commission. So I'm trying to figure out what to order in the interim.

How about winter trousers from the sage green tweed? (Assuming the cloth is hard-wearing enough.)

thanks - the color would make for a nice trouser but it this is a shetland and pretty soft. I don't think it would wear well.

Hot-weather courtroom? I'd probably get a suit in navy or mid-blue 13 oz. linen; maybe medium gray linen or tobacco. But out of light colored odd jackets, I guess tan fresco sounds good.

I think that this is good advice. And I would strongly recommend the linen option so that you have a linen suit to complement your fresco odd jacket. I never wear an odd jacket to court but I imagine that Texas is a bit more informal. But, regardless, having a summer suit option cannot hurt.

Agreed.

The back is a bit off. A piece of strechy fabric is put under the upper back to keep the center pleat "close", but it also stops the fabric draping naturally. plain.gif

Hi M, can you tell me where did you get this fabric? much thanks!

I have a couple of suits from the Fine Classics book. It's smooth, not a lot of texture, good weight, nice colors. A bit twill-y but not visible so except up close.

Beyonce looks fantastic with that haircut. I think that is the point which most urgently needs to be made here. Shame they are probably at a Nets game. Maybe they're playing a real team that night, so I don't know. Perhaps they'll have a decent time.

Yeah, though I quite like this.
