Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 497

Thanks.

Anyone have both the 516 and 520 frescos? I'm wondering if they're different enough to justify getting both. I currently have the 520 being made into a SC, and need to pick a fabric (for a different tailoring house) for another SC I've already paid for.

I have both and yes, they are different.

I have them both with the 520 as a patch pocket blazer suit and the 516 as a flap pocket suit.

Thanks. I'll just go ahead and order the 516 then as another summer sport coat.

I originally wanted the 518 for a dark brown summer jacket, but my tailor says he thinks it's too dark. The swatch is still coming to me, but in the meantime, maybe we can try to organize another re-run of the Slewfoot fresco? There was some interest last time, but not enough.

If we did a re-run, I'd like to get something slightly less red, but am also open to ideas.

DW,
I like 516 more than 520, I'm sure you will like it although I don't think it's a summer fabric.
How many meters do we need to make the brown happen and how short are we?

I believe your tailor is right about 518, too dark, I would be in for 4m of slewfresco, but I don't know if there is enough interest as everyone already cashed in on the first run

I'd be in for another tobacco run, since the only thing I got out of the last batch was a tie.

I'd be up for a rerun as well. I think the question would be who steps in for Slewfoot to organize, as I imagine it's a ton of work

I think DW will do that, I'd be in for a length as well, sold mine and want it back.

Still keen in the slewfoot fresco. I missed that run.
post #7452 of 12540
I'd be happy to organize it, but won't be able to for at least another month. Just really busy right now. From memory, I think we were something like 15 or 20m short, but I have to check my notes again. It's been a while.

Perhaps I can hit up this board again in a month, when I can really put in the work to organize something. We'll make one hard effort for a push, and hopefully reach enough orders.

Derek-
I vaguely remember you were on a quest for fawn flannel at some point. Did you ever turn anything up?
post #7454 of 12540
Yea, Steed had something, but I don't remember what book or fabric number it was. It was flannel though, as I originally sought.

It's a bit darker than what I was hoping for, but still nice. Howard Yount had a great fawn flannel last year. I heard they'll restock (they may have already). I was hoping for something like that, but didn't see anything.

It's a really great color for flannel pants, IMO. Up there with mid-grey even.

I have a suit made from 0518. It is really dark - I would not get a summer jacket made from that cloth.

Would be in for 3m of the tobacco fresco.
