will do. i'm on the fence right now. i love the cloth but, although i have around 12 bespoke jackets, i only have 1 bespoke suit (navy minnis air force blue flannel) and need to do at least a couple more practical and versatile suits before this, so it's a long-term unfunded liability!

I was serious but I would hang on if I was you - that is unique stuff.

i know. that's what i'm doing for the time being. i was curious to see reactions though. my sense is that this is quite rare. the people at fox indicated that.

It's 10 oz worsted jacketing. When I think of unstructured, I imagine something like a Canali Kei jacket, but I have no real experience with ordering that bespoke.

It depends whether you are a fan of non fully lined. Bespoke one should be able to execute it nicely.

Suggestions on books for the cotton suit?

Ended up going with a W. Bill blue linen 12/13oz (I think it is either 60142 or 60143) instead of the Draper's. The Draper's was lighter and less crisp, not really what I was looking for from a linen suit. The blue W. Bill has more grey/slate in it than the Draper's which had more purple.

I have a swatch of it that they sent me. It seems pretty flimsy. The "Q" stuff seems a lot nicer.

Every cloth I've seen from the H&W collection seems suspect. Stick with Minnis / Hardy.

i'm appealing for some help.

does anyone have access to samuelsohn linen blend sport coat fabrics from their 2013 spring / summer collection.

there are two i'm interested in and would appreciate any help with locating them.
