1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hello

    I am selling 3 lengths of an amazing Prince of Wales fabric from Drapers (made by the Carlo Barbera mill).
    It is available in 3 colors: gray with blue overcheck (ref 7538), light gray with red overcheck (ref 7535), brown with blue overcheck (ref 7537).
    I have 4 meters of each.

    Same fabric that Liverano has made into a suit for Nick of the Armoury NYC (in the gray with blue overcheck version) (see pictures and links below).

    Thanks for your interest.
    I just emailed Drapers.
    If they don't reply back quickly I'll find another way to answer your question.

    While looking for Drapers email address, I noticed that the brown version is featured on their website (http://www.drapersitaly.it/products/patterns/3). Unfortunately, they don't give any indication of weight.

    I got a the following feedback from Drapers:

    "the fabrics you mentioned are: 100% wool, weight 310 gr. and the supplier is Barbera.
    Now they are totally out of stock."


    Definitely a great fabric!

    I don't know for sure and I am far from being an expert in fabric.
    What would you say?

    Thanks for checking with them! Did they happen to say whether it was worsted or woolen?

    Out of curiosity, it is something that can be told just by inspecting the fabric?
    Thanks
    (still trying to follow-up with Drapers on this but they have just thrown their old samples)
