One of my LL Tweed is now funded, second fitting and so far so good.

Yes, thanks - 4m for me!

That looks great... You've found a very good tailor it would seem.

Looks really good, tchoy. Is this the blue shetland? It is one of my favorite tweeds.
Please post pictures once it is finished..

Thanks you! We are blessed to have a few very talented tailors here in Sydney.

Any suggestions for a good summer SC fabric? Thinking something in a light brown check, possibly gunclub, and preferably something relatively easily attainable (i.e. I can find someone to sell me three meters without selling my firstborn).

I thought to check the Riviera book (7501 would have been great), but it seems its discontinued. Any other suggestions? I'm also open to linen or a linen/wool blend. Fresco obviously would be great, but it's all suiting, and I prefer to have a couple of summer SCs as I frequently work on client sites where a suit would be overkill, but no jacket at all just feels wrong.

^^Check out Harrison's new bunch, I think it's called Mirage. Generally, it is more difficult a good summer jacketing than it is to find a good tweed. You can try a solid linen, navy or brown.

I came across that one several weeks ago, too. It looked very nice and I was disappointed to see that it was not in stock and discontinued. They should have just removed it from their website, instead of teasing us!

I did find a wonderful gun club check from Caccioppoli, but it is too heavy for the summer. For my summer SC, I think I might go for a solid linen, as forex suggests.

Yes indeed it's the blue shetland. I will try and post an image in a couple of weeks when I pick it up from the tailors.

Second that on the new Harrison's Mirage bunch. There are quite a few patterns I could easily pick for a summer jacket.
Also Drapers have great linen/ wool/silk blend jacketing as well. I posted an image on this thread a while back.

I just picked something from this book. Like everyone else, I've had a hard time finding a good spring/summer fabric. Can't comment on how it wears yet, but I was pleased with the sample.

I have this linen mix that I like a lot:



I think it was Cacciopoli or Ariston, from last year...I can find out which it was if you want.

Thanks guys, some great suggestions to check out.

Unbel, what's that made of?
