    Frank has some killer close-outs. He won't say where he got them and really it does not matter but this is good stuff. Among the highlights are a gorgeous piece of Carlo Barbera for Lesser mid gray saxony sharkskin, fantastic cloth. And 6 ply navy hopsack that is the finest I have ever seen. There's more, too.

    Somebody here should get this stuff.

    Is the fabric for his customers only or for sale to anyone?

    You'd have to ask him but I think he wants to make it for his customers.

    I was tempted by both but in each case I have things are so close that it would not make sense for me.

    Both will never be made again, nor anything like them.

    I've been looking for a sharkskin and also collecting old Lesser cloth. Thank you for the heads up.

    I saw some of this stuff yesterday, and it was beautiful.
