Was looking to get a few lengths too.... Is that a lambswool/silk/nylon mix? wanted to know how that would wear in comparison to just a pure lambswool

Good Christ no synthetics here!  100% wool love.  I think wool/silk mixes are for hotter climates but I've no experience with them myself.

I'm a fan of Breanish but just have two jackets, gray herringbone and the T4 special. The gray herringbone is certainly soft, light, and sweater-like. It pills a little, but I wouldn't trade it for a Harris or W Bill's tweed, which I have and enjoy. The T4 one feels a bit harder, heavier, and scratchier than the gray one. This is not to say I dislike it either. But it is a little more Harris tweed-like than the usual Breanish, perhaps because the wool is unbleached and undyed. No pilling or evidence of it coming.

FWIW, Patrick Chu of Chan loves Breanish and has told me he doesn't think it's hard to work with at all. But he may be more used to "squirrelly" fabrics, as Chan tends to make a lot out of the lightweight Italian stuff that is vilified on the internet.

A Polish tailor named Zaremba. He has quite a nice Tumblr.

Nope, as I do not believe it is being re-woven.

Indeed. Unfortunately, while his work looks Italian, so does the fit on several of his clients.

Interesting use of ticket pockets on open-patch pocket jackets.

Yup, I agree. Pretty on the mannequins though.

That looks very interesting. What does M&E charge per yard these days?

I would also be interested in learning the origin of this fabric. I know it's not Moonbeam - maybe Del Fino?

 

Anyone know?

I made an earlier post about using some frescos for an odd jacket... the patterns didn't really work out but I really am quite keen to get something that would hold a good crease and not crumple easily for a 'travel-blazer-suit'.

 

 

How would you think the 0546 look as an odd jacket, or would it look too much like a suit jacket? I suppose the weight at 310gms would be appropriate for the summer tropical humid countries I'm visiting...

Why not use the 520 or the 516?

Those would make much better blazer suits.
