Oh yeah, 2.5m
post #9513 of 12243
If we go small scale, I'd increase my buy to 3.5m (from 2.5)

@jrd617: I am still on the fence, mainly due to awaiting price but also due to needing to see a swatch, but I'd be interested in 2.5m of option 2a, I think.

@jrd617 

Id be in on option

2a) Smaller scale ala Connery's jacket, 450 grams (15.9 oz)
I'm going to make a suit so 4 meters for me

I am in for 2m on the fawn, donkey, tan, mottled tan (or whatever we end up calling it) for odd trousers.

Figure out what the actual color will be and I might be in for a little.

On Goldfinger tweed:

3 yards

Prefer 1 (b). Second choice is 1 (a).

@jrd617

 

I would likely be in for 2.5m. I'm leaning towards the larger scale at 450g, but would you be willing to take a picture of the swatch with a ruler next to it?

Found this old stock Reid, but there was only 1.95 meters worth. It's in a smaller scale

Unfortunately I'm between tailors at the moment so hoping some of you here can help me out in terms of how much fabric I'd need for a pair of pants.

1.5m should be enough.

not to disrupt the tweedy flow, but just in case anyone was following, I was able to get huddersfield cloth to send me a couple of swatches of the 'cool new wool' stuff and then have a couple of suit lengths shipped to my tailor in HK, and it's definitely the Bateman Ogden Panache. Nice stuff, I'm having the HC1124 and HC1126 (huddersfield's numbers) made up. Definitely a bargain at the price. I got a couple of swatches of the Minnis Fresco to compare, and they seem pretty similar at least as swatches. Similar weights and openness of weave, similar hand (for me anyway). I also got some swatches of the Minnis QX stuff, kinda interesting...definitely not a tropical/summer cloth even though it's an 8.5-9.5oz plain weave, but might be a nice year-round/spring type cloth.

May I know, how much did you pay for your "cool new wool"?
