Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 373

Have a look, also, at the Islay offerings. They make the Huntsman house tweeds, but I assume they have similar stuff in their regular offerings. On the other hand, I don't recall that I have never seen a stand-alone Islay book, but I assume they are out there. Or maybe they just supply merchants like W.Bill.

I can't see this turning out anything but great. It's my default for odd jackets.

W.Bill has some very nice bold tweeds. Cashmeres as well.

Or Hardy Alsport? (the real deal tweed one, not worsted)

The regular Alsport cloth weighs like 8 billion tons crazy.gif

Comes in 16 oz and 20 plus oz varieties. I wear the 20 plus with no problems in weather under 15 degrees.

Also, any interest for a custom run burnt orange WBill linen?

Either solid or patterned (glenplaid, windowpane, houndstooth etc).

Anyone else in?

I'm definitely in for this.

I wear cotton/linen blends year round and would only wear that if I could.
