10-11oz, and 13-14oz. Website has the limited selection that's available to the public.

Various things awaiting shears

1. Heavyweight moleskin from John G. Hardy - plan is to quickly make these into trousers for winter


2. Tabac and RAF linen from the LL linen book - will both be in the works for next summer


3. The LL RAF POW Brisa - not sure what I will do with this...may potentially be a bit loud for me. If anyone is interested in it send me a PM


4. Some swatches from Fox - have ordered the two on the left for some new flannel trousers

Fox have an enormous stash of suit lengths in different weights and designs available on-site, which truly merits a visit. Otherwise, they are very good about helping you if you sort of know what you'd want.

Does it mean that Fox will sell to retail customers flannels beyond those they displayed on their website.

Yes, if you have a broad idea of what you want (for example, mid-grey with blue chalkstripe).

Just received some nice navy Irish linen from edmorel... which I will hopefully be getting made up into a lightweight double-breasted summer suit...

Awesome. I love their corduroy. So soft and plush yet sturdy.

They look great-  I'm having a suit made in a navy 13oz with a bit of cahmere, from the same source-  do you have any thoughts on lining for the trousers?  just the top front, or more?

Don't line your trousers.

I get all my bespoke trousers lined to the knee. Italians tailors have tried to dissuade me from doing so, while the SR crowd prefers to line. Its really just your call.

If you're sensitive, or if the cloth is lightweight, I would certainly choose to line.
