Or at least a place where I can look at different books online? Minneapolis doesn't have a lot of options.

Mills sell to the trade. Rarely to individuals.
there are some distributors that might sell directly.
for shirting, I know, acorn is the only distributor who has swatches online.

Any recommendations for good lining sources? I don't need fancy ones, just plain ones with variety of colors. Also, how many meters does one need for a jacket?

I'd recommend going all Ermazine. I think Harrison's sells them direct. I'm not sure on exact lengths, but I think it's good to have close to the amount that the suit is. For example, if you need 2.5 meters for a sportcoat probably ideal to have 1.5 meters of lining. I could be wrong though.

Harrisons has a lining book thats has ermazine though they also have cupro, which I prefer.

That color made in an open weave and perhaps lambswool (similar to LL Mistral, but lighter) could be pretty nice. I posted something on the LL so we'll see if anything comes of it.

They are available from several merchants.

Full lining (top & bottom): 2m
½ lining: 1.25m
Trouser lining: 1 m
Sleeve lining: 0.75 m
