It isn't a pure overcoating book. The fabric in the picture is 330 grams (about 10.5 ounces).

Badsha - On jodek's website, search under Drapers rather than cacioppolli. I bet it is the one listed as fabric number 8356 - green donegal from the salt & pepper/covercoat book in 10.5 ounces because mine is 8352.

Thank you, greatly appreciated. Sounds like it could be the one.

All the Greek tailors I use make lined jackets...as was the Navy Mistral

Just had a fitting with a Harrison's 74150. It is like a fresco, but tighter weave. I love it. Frank said it was a joy to work with.

Which collection is that from?

No idea. It is pretty heavy at 15oz though.

It's a midnight blue hopsack from the P&B Universal book. Have the book in front of me, it's one of the densest hopsacks I've seen.

Well, it's awesome. I'll pick it up next week and post some pictures.

Sator on cutter and tailor is calling it a barathea. This seems fuzzier than most barathea's I have handled, but seems tighter than most hopsacks I have handled.

Barathea is not fuzzy at all. Most formal cloths (i.e. suitable for black tie) are baratheas.

That's what I thought too. I would never say this was a black tie cloth like he alludes to. It was from a while ago, so maybe the book has changed despite the number being the same? I opted for this midnight because it doesn't seem midnight to my eye, the navy looked slightly purplish to me and this just seemed navy.

Heavy weight Baratheas can be fuzzy, most of the heavier types on Lesser book are indeed fuzzy. Barathea is a ribbed twill on the face side and a flat diamond pattern on the inside weave, and originally used as a mourning fabric

Below is the 74150 in my P&B Universal book. I guess I can't tell the difference between a heavy hopsack and a barathea.

This looks like the underside of a barathea wave, the other side is the face, and is a ribbed twill with a slightly less cross rib. Hopsack is a clear basket wave.
