RE: Hunters. I see they've listed some of the NOS on the website.

Eustace, what do you think about the new stuff?

The Hunter's and barleycorn: both exquisite. Thanks for making this an enjoyable read.

Thanks, guys.

 

etkl: I think its very good stuff, but will reserve final judgement until I've had a coat made - I find comfort in the fact that its all made by Lovat, as Hunter's now exists only as a brand.

Final Hunter's - something a bit wilder:

Eustace, I'm pretty sure that the new Hunters is made by Johnstons not Lovat.

Hmmm - I was told by Terry Haste of KH+L that it was Lovat. Perhaps he was mistaken.

 

Regardless, it is comforting that a top quality mill manufactures for the Hunter's brand.

I was told Johnstons by the owner's daughter, who runs the company. Agreed, Johnstons makes very good tweeds as well.

Do you have their E-mail address handy? I can't find it online but if they allow individual orders I'd be very interested.

Is this the number you have for them?

020 74376226

I can't find much of an online presence for them.

Is stuff like Blue Riband just 60 gbp / meter incl. VAT? Sounds low.

I've bought stuff direct from W. Bill in the past - info at wbill.co.uk. I'm sure they can share the correct contact info for Smith.

For barley corn, should the points face down or up?

1) Frank felt a nap to the cloth and thought that the intended direction was for the apex to point down.
2) I contacted the weaver and he said that it was indeed woven with the apex pointed down so to better resemble barleycorn. The weaver also said that the coat could be made in either direction.
3) Manton thought the correct direction was for the apex to point down.
