@TRINI

Nice, I'm about to place an order with them for the chocolate shetland. Need to figure out how to do a proper wire transfer via my bank's site. They don't take credit cards unfortunately

Drat. I'm gonna get the chocolate Shetland as well (many thanks to you).

I'm thinking a 3 patch SB suit - you?

Received this swatch today from Reid and Taylor/Kynoch today. Looking at the barley for an SC fabric

I like those colours a plain barleycorn would be great as a SC.

This is very nice. I would love that.

We'd need to get a quorum of about 20-25 people (60 meters) to order it from Reid

Also might scale it slightly down to achieve the look from Goldfinger pictured below



I will tentatively call the cloth from this run the "Goldfinger tweed"

Waiting for a price quote. Expecting something in line with Harrisons.

(Not profiting off this in any way)


So far:
1. jrd617 in for 2.5 meters
2. @jerrybrowne in for 2.5 meters
3. @bertie in for 2.5 meters
4. @virchow in for 2.5 meters
5. @tchoy in for 2.5 meters
6. @fassbinder in for 2.5 meters
7. C&A in for 2.5 meters
8. @chobochobo in for 3.89 meters
9. @Despos - possibly in for several meters


who else?

Has someone at RL been lurking on the forum? Fresco is by no means a new fabric, but it seems like they're jumping on the fabric's recent popularity among iGents?

Fresco still seems rare among RTW. I've seen it in Sartorio recently, but that's it

Question marks:

@dopey?
@TRINI, any interest?

who else?

jrd617, the link doesn't work (for me at least).

you're going to do this in an all over barleycorn w/o the herringbone? what's the approximate price per meter going to be?

You guys need to find a project for summer weight fabrics. You know, something that will not cook me like a pot roast.
