I have to agree with this. I love to wear mine, and reach for it often. The warm weather is making me sad.

Now, if I could just find someone willing to part with a jacket length of the LL Agnelli Glen Check.

Any chance you have a jacket length of the Agnelli Glen Check that you'd be willing to part with?

^ I don't think I have that one. I had a couple fabrics from LL labeled Agnelli but im certain that none was a glen check.

Drat! I guess that means you probably have the Agnelli tweed and flannel.

Hey guys,

Does anybody know of a mill that sells a cashmere/silk blend bolt? Having trouble finding it.

Thanks!

If you have the Agnelli flannel, are you interested in moving it along?

Not yet, it's in the queue. Maybe towards fall.

The recent cold snap has convinced me that I need an additional winter weight, non-flannel, navy blazer to round out the wardrobe.

Recently in this forum there has been advocacy of heavyweight fresco (15-16oz) like Minnis 0533 or 12-13 oz hopsack like Minnis 0765.

From handling a sample, the fresco feels like it would be great for travel and shed wrinkles like a champ. However, to me heavyweight and fresco together are an oxymoron.

Does anyone out there have a sense about how warm it might wear compared to a somewhat lighter weight but tighter woven hopsack?

Edit: By cold snap I mean high 40s. I got away with a partially lined lightweight fresco blazer in DC for a couple of days last week when I was caught unaware by the polar vortex, but wouldn't want to repeat it.

Hard to say. I have a pair of trousers made out of it, and it is so scratchy that the ventilation isn't obvious. A jacket wouldn't have those issues, and would be somewhat resistant to wrinkles. (A half lining might have rescued the trousers for more regular use.)

Today I've been wearing the LL Ultimate blazer (hopsack with a bit of angora) around Tabland. It is warm but it breathes just well enough not to be out of control. It is warmer than LL Mistral, a 16oz hopsack that is heavier but has a much smoother finish. Either of those, if reissued, might meet the need. Otherwise, depending on your definition of winter, I'd do a serge or maybe one of Fox's hopsacks. They have two weights in their worsted book, and both look useful.

Any insight on how pricing tends to run for this? My guess would be around £150, though that might be at the lower end of the spectrum...
