Wow! Which side will you go with?

Whats the deal with the new angora herringbone overcoat fabric? The pattern scale looks fantastic but I think the angora is too delicate to take any sort of beating
post #6873 of 12243
I'm guessing it's a blend of some sort. You're right in assuming that a 100% angora would be too fragile.

Frankly, I don't see anything quite that special about it. There are many patterns in the books that approximate that design / color, without the ridiculous LL charges.

This is true, large scale herringbone is easily obtainable, I just think they nailed the scale of the pattern. The LL upcharge is something I can't allow myself to do unless it is really something that isn't put out there by others. Even the fox flannel collection at 18oz, is fantastic, but quite expensive compared to minnis, which is my go to flannel. Some of the things being put out by LL are just ridiculous in form and price, 1000g cashmere overcoating for example was upwards of 400-500 pounds per meter, and if it rains, I doubt the high quality kashmir will last

Hi, has anyone seen or even made up something with Fox flannel gray herringbone? I like herringbone but prefer some pattern more sutle for business suits. But in the fox website, I really cannot see any pattern at all. Any real life experience? Pic and opinion will be highly appreciated.

Going with the brown side as I already have a cashmere jacket in grey. Don't think you can go wrong either way.

I was perusing books at Ercoles today and was struck by a woolen flannel by Fox. It was a fairly large scale glenplaid with an extremely faint windowpane (I couldnt even see it at first but Frank thinks it is blueish green). I could have sworn Whnay looked at something like this earlier but cant find it in this thread. Has anyone had experience with this fabric before and if so, how did it turn out? I am little concerned it will look too bold in the end.

the everest 1000g cashmere was 450GBP per meter. have you come across it in real life? the tariff was stratospheric, to be sure, but the cloth is amazing. it has an incredible, dense hand that is both soft and resilient. I actually think the cloth will take more of a beating than one would ever expect cashmere to be able to withstand. really, I've never seen anything like it.

Those last three lengths look really nice, Jerry. Are they from the Worsted Alsport collection?

If I'm not mistaken, you are referring to Huddersfield Cloth. Alsport is from Huddersfield Fine Worsted. It goes for about £80 per meter.

You're right! Thanks for sorting that out.

How is the quality of their fabric? People seem to be posting more of it recently in this thread.

Actually, I was pretty impressed, especially for the price. Plus they are very easy to work with. The linens are just okay, however.
