Thanks. If you've had something made up in those fabrics and can comment on how they wear, drape, hold up etc. that would be useful too. 

I have a cut length of Delfino 1937. Haven't had it made up yet, but will next year.

@gdl203 at NMWA used Delfino 1936 for a run of Formosa jackets. He could probably speak more to it.

No, they do not. Or at least not yet. I was told that they will be launching an online shop soon.

I'm pretty sure I had something similar in an Isaia jacket a couple years ago.

It was very soft and spongy.

Doing a needle cord trouser to go with it that matches the blue, will probably put a matching blue smedley roll neck underneath the jacket.

Not made up yet but this just seems like a nice but rather regular wool

Could be different then. I didn't mean it in a bad way, btw.

The jacket I had was unstructured and unlined. It was very nice; very sweateresque.

No, unfortunately I don't have access to them (I have to travel to see the tailor so I am trying to decide on fabrics so he can have the first fitting ready when I come). It might be this one (G CHECK 4904W/D02):

But it is hard to say from the picture (the scale looks a little different to my eye, but I might be wrong).

If anyone has a lead on a gunclub fabric like the second one above (dark, rich undertone, highlights across the spectrum from blue-orange), point me that way. 

My tailor suggested this:

Which looks similar but is probably a bit rougher.

Thanks. I couldn't find it on the web site, though. This is similar, but different fibers (no cashmere).

Harris Tweed has one similar to the second.

Indeed - that's the one my tailor suggested.

Here's the 1936. It's a nice summer jacket. It is a bit wrinkly. I'm not talking about linen levels of wrinkles, but for those who don't like the look, this might not be the best fabric.

This is the color I'm aiming for, a mid blue that is lighter than standard navy to replace a coat I once had in this color: 




Here's a suggested replacement:








14809 would be a no brainer except that @Murlsquirl
 who got the solid green in that bunch made up noted to me that it runs a bit hot for what you might expect for that weight. Perhaps the weave is a bit tighter.

Another option is a chunky hopsack in the same color, something with a more defined texture. I'm disinclined to use pure linen, but mixes are ok. Would be nice if wearable in typical, not oppressively humid, NE summers. Or, if you've made up the above (09) and find it wearable into the low 80s, that would be useful to know.




Guabello makes this blue hopsack 290g / 10oz. It is a mix of 75% wool and 25% cotton. Can make a closer pic of the weave if you like to see.

How does it drapes?

 

Suit vicious, I laughed! Nice nick.

The Guabello drapes a lot. Thanks, sometimes it is good to put some punk into SF.

Cream moleskins are in. 20oz on top and 14 1/2 on bottom, will make great winter pants.

Awesome color and weave.
