Even more of a reason to join my cloth club. The first subscriptions will be the Ultimate Purple blazer. It's quality will know no bound.

Why would I want to do that? I'll make it 12oz so you can join in on the fun padawan!

Totally different animal. Soft and high performance. Which is not to say that it's the only thing you should own.

I thought moonbeam was a high performance cloth, am I wrong in this assumption?

It's not a totally different animal. Moonbeam is both of those things, but lighter and cheaper. And at its weight it's warm enough. I can't imagine that blend at a higher weight. I wore my moonbeam jacket today and was a bit warm. I think venividivicibj was pretty much spot on with his assessment.

But with that said, "anyone have some Moonbeam for sale?"

 

I was just on HoE's website. That swatch now says 'LOW STOCK'.

 

FYI

Which they define as "1.3m." A nice cap, perhaps.

If you could enquire I'd be extremely grateful.

 

If it is possible to do a nice herringbone I know a few people who would be in for sure. (And I feel confident I could rustle up some more.)

ha. I should have clicked in to see..

I like my ultimate navy LL cloth a lot. And I have  a jacket made up in the brown with blue check Moonbeam cloth. IMO the LL is a much better quality...which is why i chose to re-up with the sage.

What does high performance mean in this context? (I'm assuming you still can't make pants out of it, so it can't be that durable)

No, but it is a hopsack that shakes out wrinkles very nicely, in addition to letting air through so it isn't TOO warm. Mine is still new, so I don't have a definitive report, but it is working out quite well.

It said low stock it doesn't mean it's discontinue.
post #17265 of 19906
^ as mentioned by someone else, stock is down to 1.3 m.

I guess I wasn't clear, but I contacted Harrisons to ask if they will be producing more. They told me it has been discontinued.
