Wow Ed, nice, I agree with Foo though...even I'd have a hard time pushing the envelope of color with a tie like that.

I can believe that. I've not seen R&T cloth like that since the early 90's and it may have been old stock then. When I first started getting clothes made in the late 80's R&T was the cloth all the tailors raved about, well, here in the north of England, Lessers never got a mention. Sadly, I never indulged, as at that time I thought it had an old fashioned look to it, especially the twist suitings. You have to use it to make a coat, a tie would be a waste. What weight is it, 18oz?

I skimmed this thread but I'm just too lazy to keep going. How much fabric does one need for a single breasted jacket in about 46L? A 46L suit?

To be sure 4m for the suit, 2 m for the SB jacket, 2.2 if it has plaid (for the pattern matching). There are some tailor that can do that with less, but that is the safe side.

I would get 2.5 for a jacket. That is safe.

How much fabric for a double breasted jacket in plaid? ( with pattern matching)
post #883 of 19908
2.5 m, 3 on the safe side!

Thanks

2m is adequate for jackets, even if they are patterned, unless you are very large and tall.
