Can you post a photo of it? Thank you.

Anyone that is familiar with Carlo Barbera fabrics, i.e has any fabric books, what lines they carry, etc. Please PM me, I may have something that can benefit us all.

They post all their fabrics on their facebook page when they release them.

Anyone here know if cotton shirting would work as summer suiting? I want to do something ultra lightweight with my tailor and found some perfect navy shirting. I assume it will wrinkle at the joints; wouldn't that end up being kind of attractive though , like the creases people go for in jeans?

Wouldn't that end up looking like pajamas?

Doesn't sound feasible to be honest. Shirting fabrics made up as suit? It'd be limp and shapeless, and wrinkle everywhere, not just at flex points.

I guess it will be difficult to make unless the tailor is really good.... I remember there is a positive case by BNTailor: http://blog.naver.com/PostList.nhn?blogId=bntailor

Bntailor made stuff using linen and cotton. Have seen pics of them. But was it shirting fabric, that weighs much lighter, and has much less body?

Can't remember where it is--I don't read Korean but I guess it is more like shirting...

In a situation where a jacket needs to be made with shirting fabric, the fabric needs to be weighted down with an interlining, ideally fused.

 

Once the shirting has attained the right weight, it can then be constructed into a jacket as desired.

This is the link to the bntailor sports jacket using Monti shirt fabric. http://bntailor.tumblr.com/post/48399255444/shirt-jacket-of-monti-shirt-fabric

I am not a fan purely I have concerns how the fabric is going to wear.

That's it.
I'm also interested to know how it would turn out after 2-hour wearing.

Learn new stuff every day. Was a light weight canvass/linen utilized?
