Suit lining material - Page 2

Unlined also must be cooler. Does it make the fabric wrinkle faster or have less of a structured appearance on the outside?

I don't recommend silk because Manton told me not to.

I have a WW Chan suit lined with silk at my insistence. The lining isn't fragile, but it wears warmer than I ever imagined it might. I wouldn't dream of doing it again.

Should we get silk linings for winter coats then?

Logic would suggest so only if you want to wear lighter cloth, i.e. silk and lighter cloth might equate to a standard lining and heavier (slightly) cloth. I like heavier cloth and have no desire to opt out of a cooler lining for a warmer one so that I can wear something lighter. Of course, if you're in Moscow or something, and no matter how heavy the cloth is you feel cold, it couldn't hurt, but at this stage, I don't think a lining change is what's needed: a great coat might be in order.

what is the weave of choice for lining amongst the cogniscenti?

I can't say I prefer it for all my suits, but unlined jackets are a thing of beauty. I love my Oxxford.

Cellulose acetate (rayon) is a weak fibre, so I don't think either choice overly lends itself to durability (indeed, I'd probably choose silk). Jaquard satin weave variants are popular. In silk's case, habotai has a plain weave. And knowing habotai, I can't imagine that it would be that much warmer.

Bemberg cupro for my choice if its a lightweight fabric.

I agree with that. Who are the go to merchants for top quality bemberg/cupro?

Acetate and Bemberg are both forms of Rayon, made with different manufacturing methods. Not sure if Bemberg > Acetate per se. Anyone care to comment?

bemberg cupro is not rayon. cupro is a natural fiber and rayon is not (synthetic).

all the higher ends use either rayon or cupro though i have seen. rlpl likes to use rayon
