Does anyone happen to have access to the new Smith Woolens Finmeresco bunch and would be willing to upload photos of the new blue jacketings? Many thanks.

If you are not in a rush, you may want to contact Smith and have them send you swatches.

Is anyone familiar with Cacciopoli bunches? I'm looking for something similar to the famous Minnis fresco/H&S Crispaire, so high twist wool with an open weave.

Then why not use Fresco or Crispaire?

Caccioppoli has a tropical bunch. I don't know any details. I found this photo a while ago when looking for pictures of their fabrics. This is for the Japanese market. I found it on the page for a tailoring shop on Rakuten.

Or Fox Twist, which seems promising.

The thing is that I'm visiting Naples soon and I will have to get my own cloth in order to have time for enough fittings. As far as there is a Cacciopoli shop in the city it'll be easier for me. If someone is selling a trouser length of Fresco/Crispaire in grey I would be interested. As far as I know, neither H&S nor Dugdale sell to private customers.

Thanks! Are they the Neapolis III bunch? Because I think they are just lightweight wool (but tightly woven).

Not sure what time constraints you're on, but you can purchase Fresco.

From Huddersfield's website? I have tried without success...

Don't know about Huddersfield's site, but this one does the trick just fine I've found.

Definitely on the list to explore further.

I sent off for a swatch of this one - it looks and feels amazing and I am seriously tempted to order a jacket's length. Would a suit be too much do you think:

If you have to ask, it may be beyond your limits..

Seriously, it's a suit that will require at least the illusion of confidence.

He might just be asking if it's too much (aka too eccentric or whatever)
