I have a couple of pieces of H&S 98% super 140's, 1% cashmere, 1% mink 12oz flannel that was for a project that has been canned. The cashmere and mink add a very luxurious feel to the fabric and the weight gives a great drape.

Grey flannel and Inky Blue/Pearl Grey Chalkstripes

From his B&S post

"I have a 3.9 yard piece ($400) and a 1.8 yd piece ($175) of the grey flannel
I have two 4.6 yd pieces of the navy chalkstripe ($450 each piece), a 3.7 yard piece ($350) and a 1.5 yd piece ($150)"

Not sure how much is needed exactly for a suit vs a SC

Can't see the B&S post but I'd take one of the navy chalkstripe at 4.6.

Gentlemen, quick question - does anybody have any experience with Dormeuil Tecnik? It is really thermo adaptable? Or just a marketing gimmick?
Thank you very much!

Is the 3.9yds available for the grey enough for a 2 piece suit (sz 52) or is that cutting it close?

I'm about 1.77m (5ft 9in approx). And 3.4y is more than enough. For plain fabrics.
Think 3.9y is enough for you.

I'm 5'11", 170 lbs and a 40 chest. I've had a suit cut from 3 yards of plain fabric. Not ideal of course, especially if theres any issues, but 3.9 should be enough for a 3 piece. Your tailor will know best though.
