Combined with the current discount on the exchange markets, that brings it down to parity with the dollar.

Speaking of linen, has anybody given Yorkshire Fabric a go?

Not just for linen, but any/all cloth. I've sent emails but no reply, which doesn't inspire confidence.

Any experience with Minnis fresco 577? It's an interesting midweight wool/mohair. The picture on their website aren't really that compelling, though. The 549 mixture sand looks nice and mottled.

Yes, bought a few lengths of H&S cloth from them 2-3 years ago and no problems. I checked my email archives for a personal email there to pass along to you, but must have deleted my emails to/from them.

That linen/bamboo looks like a hot weather open weave version of chambray

The Acorn shirting? It's much softer than chambray, but similarly on the informal side. Not amazing stuff, but it hits its target pretty well.

So it's secretly a poly blend?

My favorite part of that video was the fire truck siren that went off after Foo burned the SG chambray.

^ that was 2 minutes of my life I will never get back. I have some of that chambray that Will sold back in the day. I like it and could care less whether it is a blend or not. TwitinTheCity.

No way, that episode provided me with so many laughs. Plus, I got heavily discounted SG chambray out of it when Grunswald sold his stock at clearance prices.

Who is Grunswald? I missed out on the clearance chambray.

IIRC, fire sale was like $12/ meter or so. It was a great price.

I've used them as well; fast shipping and generally a professional service

Avoid Yorkshire Fabrics. Promises on consolidated shipping not honoured, and so freight ends up costing almost as much as the fabric. Numerous emails requesting resolution ignored for several weeks, eBay unable to resolve either.

 

British Fabrics, Royal Textiles and "Quality English Fabric by Harrisons" have always been fair to deal with on eBay in my experience.
