Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 407

FWIW, Breanish tends to wear light for it's weight as it is pretty loosely woven. Also, tailors hate it - at least the ones who aren't used to it, as it is very stretchy

Empty's jacket looks fantastic.

There was mention on LL recently of trying to replicate this fabric:

But I don't think it got off the ground. This seems like a good substitute.

So we are at 30 meters now, maybe a few more people and this might actually happen. Unbel, are you in or not?

Why make up something from Breanish instead of going with something similar already made from the Moonbeam book? Do you prefer brown-cream to black-white?

10m please

I've looked at what Moonbeam bunch has, the scale of plaid is not big enough. Moonbeam looks like a suiting to me, this PoW is much better for a sport coat.

Because Breanish is awesome!! Also, it is an undyed cloth, using the natural color of the wool to make the pattern. That is neat-o if you think that sort of thing is neat-o.

The scale of the Moonbeam is quite big. Are you saying this is even bigger?
post #6099 of 12540
The scale in the picture you posted does actually work better as a SC imo, just hope the brown of the cloth comes out, I'm definitely in for 5m.

I definately like the concept. I've thought about making a suit at some later date. But, I doubt the single ply Breanish will hold up as pants.

I think that is right. I still have one of the early LL tweeds (the Gary Cooper run) in a very large scale black and white that is meant for either a suit or a topcoat but I have yet to get it made up. You should hunt for some pictures of that on the LL for ideas. Someone did a DB suit that looked great.

I have a SC made of "lanificio bottoli" wool that is undyed - I think the cloth is indeed rather neat-o. The colours have a rather special look that dyes cannot replicate.

Ok, I'm in. Yes, I prefer brown and cream to black/white. The moonbeam pattern is quite large though - large enough for a SC. Also that stuff wouldn't hold up as pents.
post #6104 of 12540
Moonbeam pattern is smaller than this Breanish. Trust me, I have a length from Moonbeam but I won't be making it up. Pics for comparison:



Can you see the difference? Yes, the first one is larger.

So we are now at 57.5 meters, that's good work in just a few hours.

What's the final call on the weight - 14oz. or 16oz.?
