Thank you. It should be funded in the next few months.

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 dropped off that very cloth at my tailors last week. It's nice stuff, but, as you suspected, not ideal for a shirt jacket.

Why not get that shirt jacket in 13-15oz. moleskin? Would look great.

I was thinking about getting three or four made, and one would probably be a moleskin.

Is the cloth you dropped off the "Khakee" that they supposedly made in the early 1900s? What are you having made from it?

Yup, that's the one (hate that spelling). I'm getting two pairs of trousers made.

LL linens for pents.

Don't do pants, particularly the bottom one.

Saw on the LL that Bookster just went out of business. If this is true and you have un-received goods work fast to get your money back or the product!

Harrisons have just launched the Mirage book, which is wool, silk and linen.  I am yet to see the full bunch but there are still some pictures on the Bookster website (shame they won't be able to use it, for obvious reasons):  http://www.tweed-jacket.com/CLOTH%20PAGE/CLOTH%20GALLERY/index.htm

 

and on the Harrisons facebook page:

Meh. Nothing exciting - seems almost dull for a tweed.

Does anyone know where I can get this fabric from? Similar to one of the LL shetlands but different colour I reckon.

I think either Moonbeam or Lamlana have something similar.
