I just went through selecting a blue linen. Settled on a blue from Drapers linen book, they have a Cornwall blue that was too light for me but the one after it in the book was perfect. Don't go too dark for a suit like this.
Just looking at the site, I like the 6516 (9oz) described as Dark Blue
Does anyone know a way to purchase Smith Woolens fabric direct? The maker itself seems to be not on the internet, and Isles Textiles Group, their US distributor, has not responded to my email. I will try calling them.
