Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 513

post #7681 of 11742
I have the heavier minnis made as odd trousers and they are by far my favorite pair, but would imagine the lighter weight works better as a suit, although I'm tempted to make up a 17oz flannel DB just cause the cloth is so substantial

I'm going to go DB with brown buttons on this one. One belted pants, one with side adjusters.

My local guy here in TO. He's in the process of chopping down my AFB double breasted because I've lost 25 lbs since he fitted me for it. shog[1].gif

Intentional yes but it was also due to a jaw surgery I had in April. Couldn't eat solid food for about a month and a half.

Speedy recovery.

But you're right that it is pretty dark. It has some black threads in it, which I really like. It's chameleon-like in that it looks like a rich brown in bright light and charcoal gray at night. Makes it very versatile.

I meant that the color probably looks this way because of the bright sunlight.

I could be wrong about the fabric, as I've only seen a swatch, but I felt like the color could be a bit more versatile - especially for odd jackets - if it were a few shades lighter. Basically how Vox's jacket looks in direct bright sunlight.

We're still at 48.5m at the moment. Any other interested parties should chime in. I'll give this another week, and then contact the interested parties to see if people would like to up their commitments a little to get us to the magical 60m. I think this really would be a great fabric for summer.

Thanks. I'm all back to normal now minus the weight. I told my tailor that he's not allowed to let anything out for me going forward.

That's no fun. Able to open mouth completely by now I assume?

Yup. I tested my capability with a Five Guys double cheeseburger.

I passed with flying colours.

XFactor,

I think that I was one of the people who mentioned Huddersfield Cloth a couple of weeks ago.

I've bought a couple of lengths of fabric from them, and both the customer service and the fabric were good.

The pricing on their "cloth offers" is excellent, but disadvantage is that whilst some of the fabrics are very nice, a lot of them are awful. As the "cloth offers" fabric amounts are limited, the good cloth generally gets purchased pretty quickly.

If you sign up for e-mails from Huddersfield Cloth, you'll get e-mails every couple of weeks alerting you to their current cloth offers, and you can then order some by e-mailing them in response.

They ship by courier, rather than by Royal Mail.

This was my experience as well.

Wow hope procedure went well, at least the weight loss is a plus. Definitely post pics of the suit once it completed.

Very good. I guess I was thrown off by your saying you wanted Vox's color "from the outset."

I think it's great as is, and it's very versatile due to it's darkness in low light and brownness in bright light. But I agree that something lighter would probably be more appropriate for a summer sport coat.
