It didn't start out as a cloth merchant but is beginning to look like one.

Does anyone know of a fabric that looks like this?





I have found a lot of similar types in gray, but in this seemingly special light blue and navy, I have had little to no luck.

I'm planning to order some fabrics from lesser, minnis and smiths - if there is anyone who could assist in getting these at lower prices could you please drop me a pm?

Many thanks in advance.

Also on the Fabric hunt. I posted these back in April and didn't get a response but ever the optimist, I'll try again.

 

I've recently seen 2 Navy fabric's with sky blue stripes. I like both and want to have a suit made from one of them. These are both from Canali suits. Not sure which suppliers they use for their mainline suits.

 

If you can point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

My first venture into cream suiting.

a 15 ounce cream suit is OK for Tom Wolfe, but who else wants to wear white in winter? confused.gif

Life is full of fun.

I will let you know how it turns out Mr. Manton.

Maybe when I have 20 suits (though I don't think my closet will allow this to happen). This does remind me that I need a pair of cream flannel odd trousers for the winter.

You can pretty much pick any mill, italian or english, look at there worsteds books and you will find a navy with blue stripe fabric. I have at least two of these in my H&S books and I've seen it in almost every worsteds book I pick up.

Anyone has experience on John Foster merino wool silk linen mix? I handled it in my tailor shop on a cmt project. I like the casual look a lot and it is pretty wrinkle resistant. John Forster is not readily available in my place. Can anyone recommend a good alternative from books such as Minnis, Harrison, lesser? Best if it is less shinny than the John foster's one. Thanks.

I personally believes 5-6 work-friendly suiting will satisfy most occasions. I will be hitting 20 once all my unfunded goods are made up, that includes everything such as my new white ties and odd jackets.

I suggest to look at ebay, in particular Royal Textiles.

Fox Brothers has a khaki cotton serge that I'm interested in, and I've been advised that the cloth weighs 220/250g.

Am I wrong, or is this too light for a casual cotton jacket? I was thinking of having a shirt jacket or safari jacket made.

I'd agree absent seasonality concerns with the caveat that I don't wear a suit everyday (or most days). 20 was perhaps a slight exaggeration but I find I tend to do more "fun" things with my summer wardrobe. YMMV of course. I look forward to seeing pictures of that thing when the liability gets funded.
