I think it's linen and wool. I will email Mina and Dino and try to get details.

I second the above. I have seen the book an there is some great stuff in there, al so ideal unlined stuff with the outside an inside being two different colours.

Summer sport coats have been on my mind too recently. I've been looking for good linen or linen blends in a textured, porous weave -- what dopey has called "burlap." I've seen such jackets rtw, so I know it's made, but I haven't been able to locate any. If anyone could tell me know of a source, particularly in a medium brown, I'd appreciate it very much.

The closest I've come is this Zegna blend, which I've ordered in grayish green:

I agree w/ those above about Drapers too. They have some very nice 100% linen options, lighter in weight than the forum-beloved W. Bills stuff, but w/ more character imo:

They have some interesting patterned options too:

I dont know if it would actually look good made up (might be too much) but that brown/blue swatch in the last picture is attractive.

I have a Zegna in silk/linen/wool in a pseudo blackwatch. It is lighter than linen, does not wrinkle as much. It also gets more compliments than any other jacket I own. It was expensive but I find Zegna does different stuff than the brits and even the other big Italian fabric houses.

Forex that looks awesome. I am new around these parts, but in for 5.5. Let me know what else you need.

emptym, am a bit confused as to why you are considering patterned 70s curtain fabric for your next SJ.

^You mean my next five? tongue.gif The T4 + Breanish cloth has me wanting a large-patterned, summer sport coat, but I'm not sure if any of these would be ideal. Part of why I took the pics was that I thought they'd make great scarves (or kilts).

For my next sport coat, what I'd really like is a solid brown like the middle swatch in that first Drapers grouping, but with a texture more like the Zegna.

That one in particular I thought would make a great scarf. But I'd rather the orange check was more of a faded red than an orange.

I put your name down as well. We are at 97 meters at the moment, pretty sure we can make this happen. Just a matter of time. In the mean time, subscription is still open. The more the better.

Hi guys,

I recently contacted Harrisons for asking swatches of H Lesser fabrics (basically 13 oz) i also asked a line of Harrisons called 'Millionaire' 100% cashmere jacketings. I am surprised by the price of 590 GBP per metre. Is this a normal price for a cashmere cloth ? What are some other good options for cashmere jacketings ?

You are surprised at the price of a product with "milionaire" as an adjective? Pretty much every mill does cashmere, Harrisons has a more inexpensive cashmere line also.

millionaire cashmere, while I don't like it and would never buy it, it is an extremely high quality product. you are getting what you pay for.

That is a beautiful jacket, I'm dying to get a summer SC in a gun club like that!
