    I am not sure about this fabric for a suit. What is your opinion?

    The fabric that is used for this suit is a 160s 15,5 micron wool by Loro Piana. I know that Loro Piana is a good manufacturer of fabrics but I am not sure what to think about the "shiny" kind of appearance. What I have seen in the past, is that people with sartorial knowledge rather wear...

    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

    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

    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...
