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:

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

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

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.
Drapers has something similar to the first pic. I'd call the cloth oatmeal. It's in this pic, second from left:

L to R: Drapers khaki cavalry twill, Drapers oatmeal flannel, Drapers light gray flannel, Minnis light gray flannel.

Don't know the Dugdale, but for really hot weather, Minnis 8/9 oz is better than Smiths, which comes in 10 or 11.5 iirc.

That Drapers kahki calvary twill has such a deep texture... can i ask where you got them from?

The Smiths 3-ply is pretty light--- more so than the 4-ply that got Finmeresco's name out there. And it drapes beautifully.

The Drapers cavalry looks excellent. How heavy is it?

post #7925 of 10756
Thanks guys. I got the Drapers cavalry twill from Ambrosi a few years ago. It's a great fabric. I don't know its weight, but I'd say it's relatively lightweight, something like 12 oz.

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. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


The unfunded liability above just got funded. Will be laying my hands on it this weekend. In the meantime some pictures from my tailor.

Makes me wonder what he did with my piece... I guess I'll have to wait to see.

He didn't send any photo's of your prova unfortunately. It is ready though and you can check it out Saturday afternoon. On the Dutch board I uploaded some more pictures of provas and finished stuff he will take with him this weekend (and I sent you a pm there).

IIRC, Breanish is distributed by Jodek International, Beverly Hills, CA. in the US

+1. Very expensive through Jodek.

Yup, and they charge a boatload for it. Surprised Jodek is still in business after they lost the big Harrisons / Lessers account. They seem to carry much smaller labels now.

Very nice C&A - did you consider a suit?
