just to touch on this again. in the faqs on the acorn site, it says they "finish" the fabric as such to do all the pre shrinking. id give you the link but im too lazy. its in the faqs anyway.

Will from ASW noted once that Jodek has it in navy and tan. Perhaps they also have cream? Tailor price is $395 a yard.

They have the best price in Naples for Loro Piana, and on things milled for them by Guabello, VBC and others, for what I have seen, they are cheaper then the equivalent from Ariston

I have to say that their service so far has been great; the ladies there reply to my e-mails within hours.

I described what sort of fabric I was looking for and asked them to send me some photos of what they had in stock. Instead, they just mailed swatches out to me. They even glued all the samples onto cards, like on their tumblr! I was thoroughly impressed.

The summer jacketings they posted on their tumblr with a wool/linen/silk blend are €80/m.

395! Who is supplying jodek, the LL? Def not paying that, smiths is 95/m and even thats relatively expensive.

For those interested, I've been trying to have this PoW remade by Breanish. It is not easy to find good PoW jacketing, most of them are small. This one was a special run by T4 and he was kind of enough to assist with rerun if we can get enough people subscribed. Cloth is single width so most everyone would need 5 meters to get a jacket made up. Price would be 40-50 euros per meter so it is a decent deal. Please let me know if you are interested and if we are lucky, we maybe able to get it remade. I think emptym has already made up his cloth and might be able to comment here.
