+1. Rather loud for a suit but still looks like a suiting fabric.

It's pretty laid back already - linen, large windowpane - don't think white buttons will really sway it one way or the other.

Yeah, that's the point. I want to have the option of this being a suit and sports coat, and still be loud.

If you want a loud suit, go nuts. It really doesn't seem right as an odd jacket.

Anyone on the fence about the LL shetland remake should definitely pull the trigger, I recently received a length and it is fantastic. Very warm tobacco shade, not flashy at all, very classy looking fabric

I am glad you got this cloth finally, it has been an uphill battle to acquire it but it is worth it.

Question on interlinings / fusibles:

For a cotton shirt, what are the thoughts on cotton-poly blend vs. 100% cotton for the collar and cuff interlining? I believe both a cotton-poly blend and a 100% cotton will shrink and expand at the same rate as the cotton shirt fabric.

Thanks!

Just came across these photos on Vanda's blog. Would anyone know where I could get some fabric like this?

 

 

 

I think it looks pretty awesome for a casual shirt. Vanda describes it as " natural indigo yarn dyed, shuttle loom woven selvedge chambray." Hmm...

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Cheers,

SKM
