    It depends whether you are a fan of non fully lined. Bespoke one should be able to execute it nicely.

    Ended up going with a W. Bill blue linen 12/13oz (I think it is either 60142 or 60143) instead of the Draper's. The Draper's was lighter and less crisp, not really what I was looking for from a linen suit. The blue W. Bill has more grey/slate in it than the Draper's which had more purple.

    I have a swatch of it that they sent me. It seems pretty flimsy. The "Q" stuff seems a lot nicer.

    Every cloth I've seen from the H&W collection seems suspect. Stick with Minnis / Hardy.

    You mean it seems too thin and may not make up well?

    The Q Project has all suitings, though. I was looking for jacketing.

    The lambswool collection from Hardy looks nice, but at 340-350 grams, I thought it is considered more a fall/winter fabric. I am looking for something around 300 grams. Or does it wear a bit cooler?

    whnay, is that the mid-grey birdseye from the Steadfast book? It is hard to tell from the photo.
