100% not how I expected Foo's voice to sound.

Does anyone know what cloth this is? It's from one of the BNTailor guys. I like the mottling/heathering it this but I have no idea if it is a wool or linen or something else.


Thanks,

Pretty sure Drapers seta e Lino

post #18229 of 19908

Sure does look like the brown here, which as VVBJ said is the Draper Seta e lino which in the green is 70% Wool, 15% Silk, 15% Linen, so I'd assume that is the same mix for the brown.

I've had a suit made in that cloth (in the green). Fantastic stuff, but please be aware that at 7 1/2 oz it's very light indeed - almost translucent.

 

I have stick-like bow legs so I don't really have to worry about fabric wearing through at the upper inside leg. But for others it may be more of a concern.

First time posting in this thread, but I need some help.  I'd like to commission a jacket in a Prince of Wales check on a brown ground.  Not especially interested in suiting since I'll be making up a suit in a classic grey PoW flannel.  I'd like this to pair well with medium-grey flannels.  

 

My two current thoughts are both from Fox Brothers.

 

Option 1: http://www.themerchantfox.co.uk/prod/811/the-290-flannel/290g-chocolate-prince-of-wales-check

 

Option 2: http://www.themerchantfox.co.uk/prod/799/the-290-flannel/290g-hazel-glen-check

 

I'll happily consider alternatives.  

 

Thanks!

Those are both on the light side, even if they are worsted and not woollen flannel. Had you thought of a tweed instead?

I'm a big fan of Fox cloth. Both of those will likely do the job for you. It comes down to what color you like best. Personally, I could see the Hazel version in a jacket. 290g is still quite substantial, but did you need something heavier?

post #18239 of 19908

No. 1 for a suit, no. 2 for a jacket.

post #18240 of 19908

Thanks, all.  I love the P&H Glenroyal but at 435 grams it's a bit heavier than I would ideally like.  I'd like to keep it under 350 grams if possible for true three-season wear.  @Concordia, lighter weight tweeds (Shetlands et al) are definitely fair game if you have anything in mind.  

 

I'm leaning toward the larger scale of the Hazel glen check (option #2) at the moment.  Anyone know of something similar in scale and look to UrbanComposition's jacket here?
