Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 503

If anyone is interested, the minimum is 60m with minnis and comes out to around 35 pounds/m, which is very reasonable. Still waiting on word from fox about their minimum and price, will keep those interested in the loop.

In for +3m.

Going for a shade most similar to WBill Linen #60154 perhaps with a bit more rust, but only the test samples will let us know, will keep this thread posted.

Will this have a herringbone, or basketweave or other weavetype to give surface interest?

So just to follow up, is anyone else interested in getting some madras shirting?

http://patchwork-madras.weebly.com

Last week, we had about ~5 people express interest. If anyone else wants to join in, let me know and I'll send DMs next week to organize. We need about 30 meters to place an order, but they can be mixed and matched however you guys' like. (ie we don't all have to order the same pattern).

Cost is about $5/ meter, though you should expect to pay a little more for shipping. (I'm not taking any profit here, and will ship at cost.)

Will there be a possibility of getting a bleeding lot? For that I'd be interested.

I'll email him later today to ask.

quoted for accuracy. riviera, rangoon, airborne, crown classic, and apparently now the lambswool jacketing book are all history. I cannot understand why they killed these books.

Thank you both very much. I emailed The Armoury and all they could tell me was that the material was deadstock and not being made anymore.

GN, whilst that particular cloth may have been deadstock, I'm sure that you can find a similar gunclub check pattern from somewhere, whether it be a UK or Italian mill. I had a Brooks Brothers jacket in a very similar fabric and then I had Rene at Deer Style make me up a jacket in another similar fabric (which was from one of his "house fabrics", so I'm not sure where it was from - I'll check with Rene).

Also, don't forget that Ethan Newton from The Armoury had a similar jacket made up while he was at P.Johnson, probably in something from Ariston, so asking P.Johnson about it could be worthwhile, too.

Thanks, JM!

Just heard back and unfortunately there's no bleeding, but there are lots of regular.

Will wait a few more days for people to express interest, and then will send out a DM to see who wants to order what.

Drat. Still in, but drat.

Anyone happen to have 1.5 meters of the Best of Both LL tweed lying around? I technically have 2.5 meters, but would love to make it a 3 piece suit. I know it's a long shot, but figured it couldn't hurt to ask! A similar remake may happen at LL, but doesn't seem to be gaining much traction.

VBC? Doubtful. They're huge and make cloth for others.
