Anyone know of a cloth like the tweed on Cary Grant's jacket in Charade?

Some kind of oversized birdseye or nailhead tweed?

@Despos?

Not to derail my question about the Cary Grant/Charade tweed, but what do you all think of a muted green tweed SC?

From InTweed.co.uk

Lovat and Johnstons, respectively

Yup. The SR tailors have a Moxon book (burgundy-colored in silver lettering) that has a good collection of 11-13oz. midweight flannels. The guys at Davies told me it's made by LP for Moxon.

What merchants do they make for?

Halstead sells under its own brand via the Pepper Lee website.

They're all too green imo, and really not that muted.

Look at this one instead (I have the same and it looks very nice):

That one looks a bit olive to me?

Does it look more green in natural light?

Has anyone had success procuring Smiths fabric from Harrisons following the buyout? I sent an inquiry to the Smiths sales email address but got no response. Looking to purchase 4.5m of fabric from the Steadfast book.

No luck here either

I myself would do them both. They are both very beautiful. I do not know which one to choose.
