    I am commissioning a new SC and looking for the following fabric:

    Actually, before I came across that pic on The Sartorialist, I saw a gentlemen in Tokyo wearing a SC with a very similar fabric. Seeing Akamine-san wearing it must have been providence. :) Anyways, a search on Google led to a Kiton SC using a similar fabric:

    I am not sure if this is more appropriate in the "unfunded liabilities" thread, but it is 368 pages long! Hence I created this thread.

    So, any ideas? So far I have browsed the following websites, without a hit:

    This will also be my first time sourcing my own fabric, so any pointers would be appreciated. My tailor just told me how much cloth I need; are there any other things I need to keep in mind?

    Thanks.
