These look like woolen flannels from the photos, but the weave is described as "twill". Does that imply that they are actually worsted?
post #18257 of 19891
Twill is just a method of weaving. Woolen and worsted is how the wool was prepared before it is turned into yarn to be woven. Therefore, twill can be made of either.

@edmorel this is probably a given, but I'm assuming these are your work?

Really nice
post #18261 of 19891
Yes recently made for customers.
post #18262 of 19891

Bummed that someone got the oatmeal w/s/l before me. They look great (as do the others).

Is this a good deal?

Product: 0330

 

 

I'm looking for fabric to make an "casual" (also to wear in a combination) autumn/winter pant, so I guess I should go with a worsted flannel.

Try Dugdale English & Town Classics, the're full-milled worsted twill in there that has a good nap and is lighter in color, works well as a separate. Not that hfwltd pictures are ever any indication.

I have a suit made from that. Good choice for medium-weight (worsted) flannel trousers . I wish they'd thought to put basic solids in the worsted part of their new flannel book.

Black trousers would be as difficult to pair as navy blue, I would think.

Forgotten to say, but I'm only looking to grey worsted flannel.

330 is a dark grey-- not at all black, but also not the sort of mid-grey that would work against a navy blazer. It's still useful to throw at all kinds of lighter colors, including tweeds, cashmeres, tartans, sweaters, etc. Add black or very dark brown semi-brogues or loafers, and you're good for a night out at a bistro.

My bad. I read "0303", which is black. 330 is much nicer. @Concordia, you don't think that would look good with a navy blazer? I like 328 better, though.

 

Thank for the link, by the way. The danger of browsing a section like that is of being seduced by cloth at what seems like a bargain. And I was so seduced. I picked up 4.5m of a Worsted Alsport (#7607). Because, you know, I need more unfunded liabilities. Would've picked up Sandringham #105383, too, but there's not much you can do with 1.4m.

It's darker IRL than that pic.
