Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 424
Sorry, don't have any pics of the Keats. It just wasn't for me. A little too rough and stiff, kind of like the polar opposite of a velvety moleskin. My ideal cotton trousering cloth is in between those extremes - heavyish and with dry surface interest (not hairy, not smooth), but soft to the touch.
FYI, one thing to note about Brisbane Moss is that they quote cloth weights per square meter, as opposed to running meter of 140-150 cm width. Therefore if you want to compare to cloth from other mills, you will want to multiply the quoted weight by 1.4 - 1.5.
The H&S bunch is called Cotton Classics, and has a wide range of weaves and weights (8 oz - 16 oz IIRC).
Alright, i will surely check out the Cotton Classics.
Thanks for showing the swatches! Unfortunately, i have already ordered them so i shall see how it turn out in actual. I ordered the beige and navy. From your pic, the beige looks a little greenish so i might just make a pair of trouser with the navy to see how it turn out.
Might be a dumb idea but I don;t like the look of most trench coats so I bought some covert coat fabric which I intnd to have made up into a simple mac style ovecoat without any of extras that go with a regular covert coat. I plan to get either no or minimal interlining to keep it comfortable in spring and fall and am hoping that the covert fabric keeps out the occasional mist/light rain.
Been seeing a lot of British Ventile fabric being made up into macs. Touted to bebreathable and weatherproof. Have handled and tried on quite a few including this from SEH Kelly and am quite satisfied with the material, although I didn't purchase as I'm not in the market for a trench . Not sure if Ventile sells the cloth by the yard though! You can however check out the various colours available on their site.
Ventile do sell their cloth by the metre, the regular range for civilian wear is L24. Make sure if having it made up that your tailor will make double lapped felled seams, i.e. not plain overlock. A double lapped felled seam is like the seam on the inside leg of a regular pair of jeans where the raw edge of the cloth is folded over, pressed and then sewn inside a fold of the corresponding raw edge. http://www.ventile.co.uk/specification.php
Got the swatches from Chapman. I tried to take some photos which would show the cloth a bit better. I believe I failed.
Here is the texture
Each of the blue swatches (because, seriously, orange chambray...) The colors are pretty accurate.
Here's the large swatch held up to the light to show the porosity.
I crumpled it in my hand and the wrinkle resistance is how you say? No so good.
I dont think so though I may be wrong.
Bah! You sure you didn't buy like a whole roll or something? How much was int'l shipping, though? Sometimes, cloth merchants charge ridiculous amounts for shipping -- but I'm guessing that in this case, it's probably reasonable.
