Let's call it terra cotta.

I believe @Claghorn is investigating the origins of the material through the proper channels.

That tobacco shade linen (jacket on the right) is available from W. Bill and Caccioppoli.

Picked up two interesting fabrics during a recent trip to Italy (it was a bit of a splurge, but I guess that's why we're here in this thread haha) and I'm wondering how I should get them made up. 

 

For the first, I'm thinking it might rock as a double-breasted? For the second, single-breasted all the way ... but what do people think of it? It's admittedly a bit crazy but I'd never seen anything like it so couldn't resist ...

Hi guys, 

 

So i'm quite determined to get that tobacco fresco done by Dieworkwear for this forum, and I've called Minnis to ask them about it. They are quite willing to do a re-run if we are interested. We'll be looking at 60 or 120m in total. 

 

Let me know if you guys are interested! Should I set up a separate thread for this? 

 

Of course, we can design another colour. I do love the tobacco that dieworkwear came up with though. Maybe with a slight hint of red or black specks. What do you guys think?

If it's mill direct pricing I would be in for at least 2.5m. Preference is for keeping the colour the same.

Could you get them to run it up in the same specs, as tobacco brown, but then bleach the brown out and dye it medium gray? If so I'm interested.

post #18146 of 21255
Medium grey is already a stock option at Minnis.

I know but I want it in brown.

Carnet has some brown linen #309. Available in 385g or 215g. The heavier option is good stuff.

@kolecho do you (or anyone else) know if Carnet can be acquired directly?

 

@Mark Lee Jin Yi certainly interested in the Tobacco re-run!

post #18150 of 21255

Why would you want to buy the Carnet directly?

 

Just go to your tailor and tell him thats what you want and have it made up...
