Scabal has 13 oz white/gray creams, light beige, and light tan/almost wheat, but I can't tell from their web photos whether any of their fabrics has the yellow undertone of these pants. Anyone seen them IRL?
Also: anyone have any sources for 14 oz+ cream wool in barathea, gab, serge, or plain weave? I know Dugdale's 16 oz ivory barathea, but I'm looking for something more towards yellow. Thanks for any help.
Hardy has a few gabardines that you might be interested in, click here
Also, Hainsworth (British Army suppliers) may have what you're looking for.
Thanks, Roger. Any experience with Hardy's cream or wheat garbardines? The photos on their site have a bad reputation of being unrepresentative of the fabric colors, so I don't know what to expect. I may have to go to Hainsworth to get a yellowish cream: anyone have any experience with their worsted?
Use this test for gabs. The good ones have diagonal / twill weave on the face of the cloth and the same identical diagonal weave on the back. Cheap gabs show a diagonal weave on the face of the cloth and show a plain weave pattern on the back. Plain weave shows the yarns running parallel, 90* angles and not diagonal.
