Where are the best places in Manhattan to buy fabrics? I moved upstate so it's closest for me.

Can somebody give me an idea of how much fabrics will cost, for ex.

11oz Scabal blue stripe 120s for a suit (not sure how many meters are needed)
160s Thomas Mahon solid colour shirt fabrics (not sure how many meters are needed)

Any online shops also?

Did you really need someone in the Antipodes to tell you that?


Brooklyn is not Manhattan
