post #18751 of 19891
Has anyone ever had anything made using Holland and Sherry wool-blended fabrics using Teclana? While I generally avoid fabrics blended with synthetics, I assume H&S wouldn't offer this unless they stand behind it. Would be grateful to hear any informed views.

Maybe @edmorel can assist. I swear I remember him discussing this once upon a time...

He should be your man or at least provide an opinion as he had something for sale previously in this link on the subject.

In this context I agree, but not as much as a general rule. I do find that additional color contrast helps here as there's not going to be textural contrast between linen and linen (usually), so a RAF / navy blue linen odd jacket works fine with white / cream / light tan linen trousers.

I like all the suggestions mentioned above -- olive, stone, raw denim, etc. I would just add navy (like raw denim, but in a more tailored form).

Regarding that Ring Jacket, I assume they had the fabric custom woven for them. That's how a lot of ready-to-wear manufacturers operate.

Fabric on that RJ looks good.

Large-scale houndstooth SC by Ring Jacket. It looks a lot like the LL stuff. I suppose the RJ fabrics are generally custom runs they commission themselves?

What color would you guys consider these pents? Stone? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

I'd call those stone.

putty, pewter, or an oyster, maybe.  Classic look tho

Fwiw, imo, putty would be darker, almost khaki, and pewter would be even darker with much more gray.  I could see it being called oyster though.  To me, stone is an off-white with a gray cast, while cream is off-white with a yellow cast.  But maybe I'm alone in that.

I'm guessing it's a taxonomy issue and to Pliny stone means a gray stone you would find a riverbank or something like that.

^ I suppose we all have different interpretations of colors, especially when we use words that are not exclusively reserved to describe colors.

@lordsuperb, thanks for the tip. I'm gonna ask them for a swatch to see if it's truly a large-scale houndstooth IRL or it's just my monitor.

Just got a reply back from Huddersfield Cloth: 1) they sure do reply to their web inquiries promptly, but 2) they only supply to wholesale trade. Bummer.

We now need to convince Derek to organize a new fabric run in a brown large-scale houndstooth. biggrin.gif

I don't think that Marling & Evans (fantastic quality by the way) is anything like the LL, which was a gauzey shetland and at least 1.5x larger in scale.

Do people consider this a warm or cool tone?
post #18763 of 19891
It seems quite warm IRL

+1 for olive cotton
