Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 527

post #7891 of 10753
Just bumping this and those who had originally mentioned their interest in participating earlier.

Apparently we would need to have it shipped to someone in Europe as Breanish is unable to ship directly to the US as a result of their distribution agreements.

Any European takers willing to organize? I believe it would be a pretty straight re-run of the previous order so no need for test swatches, etc.

This one was a special run by T4 and he was kind of enough to assist with rerun if we can get enough people subscribed. Cloth is single width so most everyone would need 5 meters to get a jacket made up. Price would be 40-50 euros per meter so it is a decent deal. Please let me know if you are interested and if we are lucky, we maybe able to get it remade. I think emptym has already made up his cloth and might be able to comment here.

Single width so he's doubling up for a jacketing length.

Since all these other projects seem to be going well, I guess I'll tilt at a windmill too. As I mentioned before, I've been having a hard time finding a nice flannel for trousers in a kind of light sand or tan color as in the picture below from Vox's blog:

http://www.voxsartoria.com/image/55814655923

Ideally I'd like a little less yellow and a little more brown.

These come close to the color I'm looking for:

http://www.howardyount.com/collections/wool-pants/products/super-120s-fall-flannel-tan

This color also, although this is a twill, and a little darker than I'd want:

http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/beige-wool-twill-trousers-2216.html

but I'd like to do something heavier, maybe 15oz or so. I prefer woolen flannel to worsted, so that would be my first choice. Seems like Fox would be the right choice for the job. I'm open to suggestions though. Just trying to gauge interest generally before investing a ton of time in it.

I think flannel in such a color would work well as a suit too, which I may consider myself. But the principle use would probably be as odd trousers. So, who's interested?

Edit: Since a few projects are going on at once, when expressing interest, either quote this post (and spoiler because of its length) or say, "in for a trouser length/whatever of unbel's flannel" - I will favorite posts that I think refer to my project to acknowledge that I saw them.

I might be interested in at least one trouser length, possibly two. A bit surprised there's nothing on the market for this already, though.

If anyone has suggestions for an already extant cloth, I'm open to that too. I searched for a while with Steed and we couldn't find anything that was exactly what I wanted.

Marling & Evans and Del Fino both have a similar flannel in stock.

Del Fino I don't know how to buy. The M&E A1 is closest, but I'd like still lighter in color. Do you know the weight on the M&E though?

SF member badsha can hook you up w/ Del Fino.

M&E flannels are 13oz., and very attractively priced.
