Anyone has experience with Rex Fabrics?
http://rexfabrics.com/mens-fabric-selection.html

I was searching for some Ariston cloth online and they seam to have decent selection. I've sent inquiry, lets see - not really online shop experience.
Based in Miami.

Yes. I've bought Ariston from them and have also visited the physical store. All as advertised. It's fine.

There is a shop in Milan called camicieria piccolo. They have a website and about 1200 types of shirting cloth. They have the same shop in Naples. Though I am not sure that they can send it overseas. Good luck

But only shirting. Any wool

Forgive the basic question (I've never done an overcoat makeup before): roughly how many meters of liability are needed for a DB tweed overcoat?

2.5-3 would probably do the job

This one? I'm actually having this one made up right now by Anderson the one you ordered this winter. Lookbook photos might be helpful if you want to see how the fabrics look when made-up.

NMWA is also having it made by Formosa for this F/W. Greg had some pics.

Best to check with your tailor, but likely 4m.

How much does the green "pop" IRL? Subdued would be nice.
post #18779 of 19918
^ It's subdued. Visible, but subdued. Overall it has a green-brown cast, but unless you're looking for it, you wouldn't necessarily notice a particular green element.

I had this conversation with my tailor recently. I'm tall and slim (38L in RTW) but they were adamant 3m of a solid colour should be fine, 3.5m if patterned. I think I got 4m just to be on the safe side.
