This fabric, from one description I've heard, is called "Diamond Jacquard". Is this an accurate description?
Craig's jacket looks a little tight to me, but it's the fabric that I like.
I'm looking at having a tuxedo jacket made for streetwear purposes (yes, I will wear it over a white tshirt and black jeans, you may commence mindsplode). I used to have one that was midnight cotton canvas with silk lapels, but I spent too much time in the gym and have outgrown it.
The reason I like this fabric is that it's got enough texture to break a little away from the minimalist appeal of a tux jacket. I would like it a little less shiny, but that's probably because of the camera flash.
Is this fabric often available at tailoring houses?
Are there other, similar fabrics I could look at for such a commission? One that's a touch more subtle would be cool.
