If I were going to Naples, I'd try to arrange a visit for the experience and I have heard the hopsack they carry is first rate (hope it is, I have a commission in process).

thanks. I already have this one in wool and mohair (I would want something darker for sure)and would like to find something more for a 2/3 season fabric.

do you think that fabric would be the right choice or too light are more focused for a summer jacketing?

 

would you have a link of it?

If only you were coming to the SF trunk show, I'm bringing a bunch of bunches.

many thanks for the link, will have a look at it for sure.

as always I will be during my visit very much time pressured so I would want to make some decision beforehand and i have looked into the site of cacciopoli and felt a bit lost.

That's a good one. Here's a better photo of the swatch for @Mr. Six, if it helps.

Can anyone humor me and explain the difference(s) between Kid Mohair, Adult Mohair, and, ostensibly, "normal" mohair?

post #17677 of 19906
Is there a method to get swatches from VBC or Delfino?

I had this made up last year:



Fairly happy with it, though only wore it a few times since I had it made mid-summer.

NMWA has made a jacket out of it: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/clothing/sport-coats/navy-mohair-wool-blazer-10-11-oz.html

The colour is a little bright for my tase, William Halstead offers two more colours (cut lengths can be ordered from Pepper Lee), one of which is almost black and the other one is a nice midnight. Not sure if Caccioppoli also does different colours.

Drapers hopsack would often be the "classic" VBC hopsack, which is good stuff, drapes well, has a nice visible structure, just might not last quite as long as some English hopsacks, I believe (have only had mine for two years). http://shop.vandafineclothing.com/products/mto-vbc-wool-hopsack#

They have a couple of different hopsacks, most are a little too fine for my taste (for a blazer, that is). They also carry the VBC hopsack.

2/3 season cloth really depends on where you are. This cloth is my 2/3 season cloth in Hong Kong. If you live in a colder environment, you could get a serge cloth for a navy blazer.

Hi Gents, I am looking for POW fabric with larger/cleaner checks for DB, ideally would look like the ones below, any suggestion?

I have the black/white fox flannel made up as a DB...the scale of the fox is smaller than the scale in those pictures...
