I have some photos of Oxxford swatches I really like. I will search for them.

Jacketings Everything is shot indoors with my crapmo, I mean, macro setting. Colours are a little off, but close enough for the internet. 1. 10ish oz half-width shetland. Mottled grey with a wheatish coloured overcheck. 2. 15ish oz tweed. brown and brown with a rust stripe. Spongy. 3. 15ish oz tweed. Sort of a Russell plaid. 2 shades of green and 2 shades of brown for the base with a blue and red overcheck. Spongy. Tomorrow: Trouserings? .

Can anyone play?

Tweeds:
12oz.Lambswool- lilac overcheck on rust


22oz.Green/brown herringbone suiting-after this winter, it's on the short list.



13 oz. Brown glenplaid. Now that I've finally figured out what to do with it, it'll be gone soon too.



Flannels:

8 oz diamond weave:



11 oz. fancy stripe- this has gotta be a DB (I'll need button boots for this one as well)



'Nuf for now.

What's the wearable season range on that Kevlar?


I have a suit out of 3x3 90/10 kid mohair/wool (also out of production) and it's good for early Summer or early fall. Too warm for July/August and gets fuzzy in high humidity.

Yachtie,

I feel like your 12 oz lambswool and my "10ish oz shetland" might be related. Like, second cousins or something.

I've never heard of diamond weave. It looks nice.

The Russell looks interesting. Who makes it?

Here are a couple cloths: Drapers, tropical worsted, probably 8 oz at most, super 150s. The grey is slightly variegated and has a brownish tint. Great body for what it is. Scottish cashmere for Kiton, ~11 oz. Seems like a slightly ligher, softer version of Harrisons Cachet. I'm a sucker for the pink selvedge. No selvedge, but it's Loro Piana cashmere/vicuna, ~10 oz, midnight blue. Crumpled to display the unabashed sinfulness of it. May go all out and line it with Hermes scarves. I may have some excess of the LL brown tweed, in case anyone is interested.

Nice. Will you be using this for a topcoat, or is it actually going towards a suit/sportcoat?

Oh dear lord....... that cashmere for Kiton is killing it, the vicuna is sinful to the highest degree. O my...
NICE. (understatement of the year)

In keeping true to my nature as a hopeless cloth addict I am offering to buy anything you guys want to get rid of.

I love this. Absolutely love it. I'm thinking it would make the perfect casual country suit. Is it from a book that's still available?
