Just a preview for those interested:
Tobacco Flannel (Click to show)
That looks great. A richer brown than the browns in the Minnis flannel book. I'm looking forward to this - I'm a big fan of brown suits.
So I thought the following websites belong to the same BRAND and realized they do not.
I am guessing J&J was bought by Hardy and then by Huddersfield? How did these brands consolidate?
- Huddersfield Fine Worsteds - https://hfwltd.com - The people who make Fresco - Hardy Minnis / J&J Minnis? - Manufacturer
- Huddersfield Cloth - http://www.huddersfieldcloth.com/about.asp - Dealers/ Traders
- Are they reliable source of fabric as well? They have some nice "Sales Specials" going on. Anyone had any experiences with them? Thoughts?
Actually, a while ago I proposed the idea on the LL for a Brisa project, but it didn't get much support, and as it turned out the Brisa quality can only be made in greys and browns. My idea was to do a very dark brown ground (think chocolate or coffee) with a lighter brown glen check (probably the same shade as suggested by Dieworkwear, or maybe a tad lighter). But if my idea could be realised here it would be great… What do you think?
