T4 - what's the origin of your handle? Are you a microbiologist or biochemist?

 

I ask because long ago I did a bunch of research using bacteriophages, and it's odd to see the reference in this setting.

 

Cheers,

LM

Brisbane Moss tan (Fawn) corduroy suit. The weight is around 14oz I believe. Turned out very well. No padding in the shoulders and very soft and comfortable all around. Looking forward to it this season!

Who makes the suit?

corduroy suits were the best thing about the 70s
post #4491 of 12246

Trying to find a fabric and would appreciate some help - a standard grey glen check with a dark brown overcheck (rather than a standard blue or red overcheck). Anyone have any specific suggestions?

 

And no, Ariston or Cacciopoli don't have it.

Slew,

 

I like the suit. Can't ever see myself ordering one, but I do appreciate the look.

I've seen it used in a few expensive RTW suits (Brioni, Tom Ford), but never found one in the books. Looks fantastic, and I'd love to locate one.

 

If people are interested, there's a Tom Ford suit on display at BG (right next to the Marinella ties) that boasts this fabric.

I remember there being a recent London Lounge cloth with an ochre over check.

Thanks. Yes, I do have a swatch of that and its quite different from the design I have in mind. The grey in the LL cloth is too dark, and the ochre is, well, too ochre smile.gif

How much fabric would I need for a vest? I'm around a 38 - 40. Just 1 meter?

Probably half that but I always get one full m or y anyway.
post #4499 of 12246
1 yard is safe and conservative. meter is too much. you will be able to get 2 vests from one yard because you don't need much width but you need one yard for the length.

Apologies if I missed an appropriate suggestion above but I was looking for advice on where to find a navy donegal jacketing (SC not a suit)
I am looking for a cloth appropriate for a staple winter SC

When sitting with Dino he showed me some interesting 13g options from Cacciopoli and Ariston books but the swatches didn't appear to have enough "flecks" on them for my taste (perhaps it was just the luck of that particular swatch).

I am not married to the idea of donegal and would also like to hear any other recommendations for a staple navy winter SC

Thanks in advance
KJ
