If you guys like the linen and I can get firm commitments for 12-14 yds, I'll order a roll.

This one?  I like that a lot.

The glen plaid?  If we could get something like that woven in about 10 oz, I'd be in.  I've been wanting a summer version of the T4phage Breanish glen plaid.  I'd probably prefer cream and dark brown to black.  And maybe a blend over pure linen, like UC's linked above.

^ What emptym just said. I'd be in.

I second that...as both a linen...and as a tweed.

that's a wool jacket. I don't really get the cream/dark brown, my goal is the black/grey plaid. hairymatt has one he posted ages ago. I am meeting with a linen guy next week, I'll see what he says about milling something specific.

I'd be interested in a summer/linen version of the large scale PoW.

You're good with a blend like wool-silk-linen?

Thats fine too

I'll post a pick of the wool/linen/silk suit tomorrow, if it doesn't rain. Maybe Sunday. It's a larger scale than the wool jacket in the linked pic.

Thanks to you and UC for correcting me about his jacket.  It's great either way.  In a perfect world, I'd love to have both cream/brown and black/cream.  By black/gray, did you mean the one you posted a pic of, this one?:

It looks more cream than gray to me.  

 

This, as you probably remember is the T4 Breanish: 

 

This in about 50% linen or hemp and 25 wool, 25 silk would be ideal imo.   9-10 oz weight.  The scale could be a little smaller, maybe, like UC's.

 

And I'd prefer brown over black, just because I imagine it'd go better with brown shoes.  But a really dark brown that's almost black would be nice.

 

Brown/cream would go well w/ cream/oatmeal linen pants or gray fresco, both summer staples.  How were you imagining you'd wear the black/gray?

I have a trip to Scotland coming up and I was wondering if anyone out there has any experience with Islay tweeds? http://wsw.islaywoollenmill.co.uk/shop/tweeds

I know that the woolen mill there does the custom house tweets for Huntsman every year, but what are their regular products like?

Any idea who makes a brown fabric like this jacket worn by Qemal of Liverano?

Maybe Halstead if it's mohair? I haven't seen many other brown mohair blends.
post #17774 of 19918
I got my brown mohair from Il Vecchio Drappiere. They said it was made by VBC.
