Any jacketings or suitings?

Only a blue linen jacketing for now. I will go back there quite soon and pick up some more. They also have some great vintage stuff and are a pleasure to deal with.

I don't need it to be the exact cloth, but I would love to source something similar to it. Thank you for your help and expertise.

Very nice jacket...

Just bought a suit length of this via my tailor (Meyer & Mortimer):

http://www.themerchantfox.co.uk/prod/232/london-lounge/london-lounge-char-blue-windowpane

Horribly expensive but (a) can't find a heavyweight blue flannel that touches it and (b) price is due to go up on 1 April. Interestingly, Fox didn't give the tailor a discount.

I'll have it made into a DB suit over the late summer ready for late autumn.

Looks like Drapers, especially given the composition. I'll likely be in Mashburn's next week and I'll try to remember and ask around. Though more often than not those dudes don't know SF-level minutiae.

Follow up, I am having some trouble finding a source for Drapers. Are there any online sources, website or number I can dial to reach them?

Interesting thing is only the LL flannels are going up in price, everything else will remain the same price. If anything they should have offered a discount.

I have 2.5 metres of it and was going to have a pea coat made, but when I saw this car coat picture (spolier pic #1), thought that the herringbone might best be used for it instead, with a brown Donegal replacing it for the pea coat

I live in northern CA (SF) so longer coats are too warm. I'm leaning toward the car coat as seen in the first picture and then getting a Marling & Evans Donegal for the pea coat because herringbone seems like more of a formal coat to me and would fit the style better. What say thee?

made the decision to go with the pea coat, it will get the most use...and will post pics when it's completed. This picture helped convince me

It is. I linked back to the source in the click-through, but not sure which thread it's from. Likely this one...

I should probably take a long position on LL cloth.
