Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 305

post #4561 of 11421
Thanks guys!

I already have a few jean style trousers from Peter and enjoy them. Just something different. I wear dark jeans a lot these days so having some in this style may help my color spectrum! I'm aiming to have a moleskin or two made up in that style as well. Will do one or two things in 'frog pockets' in addition.

$600 - $1200 for bespoke jeans? I feel better with my decision already! :^)

I was just in touch with Dugdale's, and they're revamping the New Fine Worsted bunch, which will be called Panache. Pictures aren't online yet, but from the descriptions, it seems as though there will be a number of very interesting cloths (fawn with sky and white triple pin stripe, anyone?). Also, it will include a PoW with a bronze overcheck, which might be what Eustace is looking for...

Hmm...I wonder if it will be the same as the Bateman Ogden Panache range. They both have the same characteristic.

Having looked at the pictures that you posted online, as well as the few pictures that are available on the B-O website, I'd say that yes, they do look very similar.

New Huddersfield site: http://www.huddersfieldcloth.com/

They have a few new ranges as well it seems including the Magdale Tweeds.

I recently purchased from Hickey Freeman the Mahogany Collection Chocolate and Tan Herringbone Sportcoat style #Y24025503020. I am trying to figure out who made the fabric as I want to commission some pents., I am trying to make a garish suit.

Any help in identifying the fabric would be greatly appreciated.

It's not going to happen. Even if you identify the maker of the cloth, chances are it was a custom order. And even if it wasn't, there are going to be inevitable variations in the dye. If you want a suit, buy or bespeak one.

I've recently started looking into picking my own fabrics for shirts and jackets and now I have swatches from Acorn, Dormeuil, and H&S on the way. happy.gif

It's kind of disheartening that all the informative posts about fabric seem to be from 2007-2010.

It seems to me that http://suitology.wordpress.com/ is a worthy replacement...
