If anybody's interested, the Tonik 2000 is priced at 90 GBP (20% VAT inclusive). Am getting enough for a 3 piece I think. Expensive stuff.

Fairly certain the Cam is 2x2. The Luna is (surprisingly) not that sheer for a batiste. I have a good 10+ shirts from the Luna, and have been very happy with each despite my conservative tilt. Give one a go and see how you like it.

Since solids are the only feasible option with minnis right now, I propose we do the steel blue shade of this discontinued lessers tropical (left swatch) as a fresco, any takers?

post #5090 of 10837
I'm not sure it's discontinued, the Tropical book has been renumbered, but it seems as if most shades have remained. Also, it might be a bit close to Fresco 520 for you to get real interest going...

Too similar to Fresco 520 - the official iGent summer cloth.
post #5092 of 10837
Smiths has something similar too. See 4055 and the navies/blues there.
post #5093 of 10837
I have a sample of 0520, the shade I propose is much more grey, although I do remember seeing it in finmeresco...slew im failing please help
post #5094 of 10837
I think there is also a similar shade in Tonik. I don't think this color needs to be made in fresco.
post #5095 of 10837
Nobody's interested in smth with subtle contrasting yarns in warp and weft that might give the fabric a richer look? That's far more uncommon and can be pretty if done well and right choices are made. See the dormeuil cloth below for reference. A slightly darker shade of blue with black (or a dark navy) would also look fantastic, I think.

The patrol blue is pretty common amongst the 10-11oz, smith 4055 is more like a dark french blue.

Anyone got anything made up from H&S Crystal Springs 100% Super 130's worsted jacketings? I've been browsing through the book today and there were some awesome plaids, wondering how cool they wear. My tailor's book was old though, I've asked him to try to get the updated 2012 book.

I'm sure something will work out soon enough! Did you ever talk to them about re-creating the Rangoon? Could be pretty cool and they did have patterns on those.

Yes, that would be the ticket.

Asked them previously. They either can't or won't recreate it.
