    It is my understanding that is a bit of the fiber and location asShetland tweed should come from the wool of sheeps raised on the islands of the same name. In my experience it is also softer to the touch and with a thighter wave. My one cut of Shetland is from Scabal

    I was also surprised about the Harrison prices I have seen and been quoted in private being paid outside the UK and Italy. However the prices from my tailor (Italian) or even the ones from any vendor in the UK are massively cheaper.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestion on sourcing the serge fabric. I had a sample I was trying to match from a 1980's DB jacket that was owned by my dad, made from a Zignone fabric. Above is a comparative picture and I believe to have found what I was looking for in either the Oyster 75750...

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Does anyone know if Harrisons of Edinburgh has in its books (all their brands) a proper, thick whale, navy serge? I have quite a few books from them and cannot find a proper thick whale one but only fine twill like. I would appreciate the book and cloth reference. Alternatively, any other...
