If you want that weight I would go for a Flannel. Both Minnis and Fox make nice versions.

If anyone would be willing to post some pictures of the linen fabrics available from London Lounge it would be very much appreciated.

Not looking for a flannel, I found THIS but wonder if it is too dark or just the picture

AND THIS which has a better color on the screen, but is lighter in weight

Anyone have experience with huddersfield cloth? They are much better priced than minnis, just not informed on their quality.

Huddersfield Cloth is Dugdales / Fisher. They are top notch.

That is a much more Royal blue than what's on the LL website. A fairer look?

I've now seen a bunch of photos of tabac, and I really wouldn't know if I like it. There are 3 or 4 other tans in the collection that might be more my thing.

Anyone selling some navy or brown hopsack cloth for a sport coat? Or any other solid navy or brown suitable for a sport coat, too!

Edmorel is selling some brown hopsack in the B&S forum.

Niice. I'm new to this... How much cloth would I need for a sport coat? For a two-piece single breast suit? I'm like a size 36.

Probably 2 meters but I'd ask the tailor making your coat to be sure.

I bought some (maybe all) of it. Very nice.

For SC, my tailor requires 2m for a solid color and 2.5 for big pattern but 2.5m for both solid and pattern if this is the first attempt with a new tailor.

I am 6ft tall (183cm) with a good build, and can fit in between 40-42 UK for Jacket and 36 Uk trousers. For solid my tailor requires 1.8m for a jacket and 1.5m for trousers but for me 1.6m for trousers. for patters, it will probably require a biit more depending on how bold it is...

Gentlemen, thanks for that.

Ed's cloths are already sold. Anyone have for sale a jacket's worth (2.5m) of solid navy or brown fresco or hopsack? PM moi.

Anyone seen the Minnis Fresco II in Prince of Wales pattern? Terrible idea for a Blazersuit? I have seen the Fresco II fabric and like it but now need to order blind for timing reasons so I am deliberating between Grey and POW. Any thoughts on how light the0500 is versus the 0501 or 0502 for this purpose? Thanks in advance for your advice.
