Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 484

post #7246 of 12539
did you even read the posts?
post #7247 of 12539

The posts said 4 yards for a two piece, and 2 for pants, but it should be less than 6 yards for a two piece plus extra pants (I was asking how much less).  It's less for the same reason that a two piece takes 4 yards, whereas an odd jacket plus odd pants takes 4.5 yards.  You save cloth when the pattern is part of the same suit.

Depends on what size you are and what the styling of the jacket and trouser are.
It's still better to ask the person who is making/cutting the clothes to be sure. Also better to have extra than not enough cloth.

For jouneyman he probably needs 5.5 yards. Could require less or maybe a bit more. He didn't specify if getting pleated trouser or other details.

Any opinions or experience with the Smith's Travel Suitings book? I'm looking at a couple of 8-9/9-10 oz and wondering how they make up/wear. TIA.

Ah, the salad days when you could get a Cappelli tie and a jacket in one sitting.

SC in John Molloy donegal. It's been finished for some time but just had chance to take pictures...Intel(R) JPEG Library, version 1,5,4,36

The back is a bit off. A piece of strechy fabric is put under the upper back to keep the center pleat "close", but it also stops the fabric draping naturally. plain.gif

Is that their 21oz tweed? How warm does that wear as a sport coat?
post #7253 of 12539
14oz.

That's intense.

Fabric looks great though.

I'm sure this has been answered before but is Molloy loose- / handwoven? Or is it pretty hardy stuff?
post #7255 of 12539
It's machine made I am afraid. Seems Molloy and Sons is hand woven. Very hardy.

I have the Molloy barleycorn from the LL run and it pills a little. Not a lot, but it seems to be flaking off. Anyone else have that run?

That jacket looks pretty good - well done M.

I have it, but haven't made it up yet, is the pilling becoming an issue?

Have touched Molloy swatches recently. They are relatively more hairy than the John Molloy ones.

Yup, the M&S ones are quite hairy and robust.
