    London Lounge (Brisa) Classic Suiting Fabrics

    I am clearing out some suiting fabrics that I never got around to commissioning. The fabrics are London Lounge Brisa suiting fabrics as well as Minnis Fresco and Rangoon suiting fabrics, broken out into two separate listings because of the different prices. $85/m for the LL fabrics, $65/m for...

    Fabric required for a short sleeve shirt

    I wanted to get a bunch of seersucker and linen/linen blend cloth for my male relatives in India who would certainly appreciate it in the 115 degree heat. Most of them wear short sleeved shirts in the summer (tailoring is easily accessible and cheap). Can anyone give me an estimate of the cloth...

    Fabric brands ranking

    I was looking at Proper Suit and noticed their "Fabric Level", and I wanted to learn more about different level of fabrics, so I searched around SF and found numbers of helpful comments including this ranking by add911_11. Based on that ranking, I added few other names that I've found over the...

    Polyester Wool Blend Suit?

    I think I know the answer to this, but I need some of your wisdom. Is it worth getting a suit made from a polyester and wool blend? Perhaps as much as a 45-55 mix? Thank You

    Amount of Fabric Needed for Suit and Pants

    I am going to purchase some fabric for a suit. I am 6 feet, average build. I have read I need appx. 4 meters for a suit. Is this correct? How much for odd pants? 1.5 meters? Thanks

    Linen vs. cotton/linen blends

    What are the pros and cons of cotton/linen blends vs. pure linen? I am thinking about summer pants, but I also wonder about shirts and jackets.

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    My thanks to dopey for the inspiration for the thread title. All pics taken in natural light outdoors, so the colors are reasonably true, unless otherwise noted. PART I: Flannels 14 ounce woolen flannel, color "donkey" (sort of tan/gray/olive; see Portnoy's Shattuck suit; same cloth): 11...

    Polyester: Breathability vs. Wicking?

    I have some questions about polyester. I'm a larger guy that tends to overheat pretty quickly and with summer here I want to stay cool. What I'm looking for are some lightweight, breathable short sleeve button downs to wear casually on the weekend. I'm having a tough time finding linen that...

    Cotton v Wool suits

    Hey all, Just wondering what your thoughts are on cotton suits in comparison with wool suits. I heard cotton suits are lighter but also wrinkle up easier. Is this true? Which one looks/feels better (more shiny) and which one takes more wear? Cheers

    Help classify these fabric makers

    This list comes from searching the forum. Can someone separate these fabric manufacturers into three categories - first tier, second tier, third tier? Criteria for judging: medium weight/three season fabric; pretty basic navys or charcoals, maybe with some sort of self-pattern; Super 120s-150s...
