Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 408

Ya, that fabric is awesome. The jacket made of it is probably my favorite. Anything T4 touches is gold imo.

Fwiw, it feels slightly denser, courser, and heavier than the other jacket I have in Breanish, the dark gray herringbone.

16 16 16 16 16 16 16 16, go big or go home!

I'm probably in at the 14, but 16 is a no-go for me (already have far too many heavy SCs).

I think someone should just go all out and get a suit made up of it - you could only wear it 5 times before the pants gave out but boy would it be the ultimate FU suit.

that fabric is their
standard weight
of 10oz
(although i think it
is for single width)

the one i made up
is slightly heavier
because of the yarns used

there is a waiting time
for special orders
and they are backlogged
so the earliest
it can be made is
august

The width is perfect for a stranglefap, did not consider that......................

Any better pics of this as you guys are saying its brown/cream but looks grey on my monitor.

I was thinking 14 oz as well but I guess we will have to see if the mill is OK with recreating the same cloth at lighter weight.

I think August would be just fine, especially since this is a fall/winter fabric anyways. Do you think it is feasible to make it in lighter weight? I think yours was 16 oz, could we get the same cloth in 14 oz?

Beautiful cloth, forex. Provided that it's 14oz., I'm in for 4 meters.
post #6116 of 12494
Correction - 20m for me now.

I like the standard weight Breanish and it seems to suit the spngy feel of the cloth. I would prefer their standard weight, bulked up by the nature of the yarns, as T4 said was the case with his. Heavier is fine, but not needed in my opinion.
post #6118 of 12494
I also prefer the lighter weight, heavier tweeds are much easier to find.

I have a piece of Breanish tweed from the Permanent Style subscription which runs at 10oz, it's perfect for spring to fall.

Here the article from Permanent Style.

as i noted previously
the fabric you have is the
'standard' breanish
ie 10oz
mine is slightly heavier
about 11-12oz
anything heavier will
limit the use

<3

the brown is
a dark bitter chocolate
and the cream
is like eggshell
but slightly darker

in isolation
at first glance it may look
black and white
but it isn;t
