Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 421

post #6301 of 10668
Just a note for people who were interested in the oxfords and chambrays I posted earlier. A member on here advised that I take it down, since the merchant is not technically set up to do retail sales (only wholesale). If you're interested in the cloth, you'll need to go through your shirtmaker.

The previous posts are now taken down. Apologies for the mistake.

Good point. 

The limited quantity may justify the purchase without the certainty of having it made up and we could, also, consider that reselling it would be easy. However, purchasing standard cloths without the certainty of having it made up would be pure acquisitiveness.

Gents,
I plan to place an order for three new pair of grey odd trousers.
Based on the swatches I have at hand as of now, I've made the following fabric selections:

Summer: Minnis Fresco 0500
Mid weight: Minnis Classic 0631
Winter: John G Hardy flannel 0300

Any recommendations of other more suited fabric to chose instead? in similar range as the above ones.

Yet to place the order, but NSM is my intention.

631 looks a tad dark. I'd go for a shade lighter with 630 personally.

I think the pictures on the Huddersfield website are a little bit off color-wise.
The 0631 swatch I have is not as dark as it might seem to be on their site.

anybody know of decent whipcord or other twill trousering? 12 ounces max, preferably a bit lighter.

Thanks

The H&S cavalry twill is nice.

Drapes very well but doesn't feel stiff at all.

Try the H&S Dakota Plains book. I believe it's 10-13 oz bedford cords, cavalry twills, and whipcords, with a few 14-16 oz fabrics mixed in.

Ambrosi uses some nice stuff from E. Thomas that's probably 12 oz.
