I just had my appointment with Patrick and Arnold of WW Chan in Chicago today. I'm looking at getting my third and fourth pieces from them, respectively and I'm looking at mid weight worsted charcoal suit and a more casual light grey summer weight suit. After doing some research here, I wanted to get them made in Lesser's tropical and the 10oz books but discovered that they only currently have the gold lumb book which is decidedly out of my price range. I already have some stuff in Minnis Fresco and H&S Crispaire and love them but would like something slightly smoother and frankly just want to try something different. Patrick guided me to some selections from Dugdale (8960 New Fine Worsted for the light grey and 8868 from Super 120s), and I was impressed with how competitive the price was. I did some research here and it seems to be well regarded cloth but a clear notch below the Lesser line which is so heavily lauded on SF. For the worsted charcoal, they also pointed me towards the Scabal but it was significantly more expensive even with a 2 trousers for the price of one. Anyhow, knowing that Lesser's is not an option and that I'd like to try something different from Fresco, what would y'all recommend that might be more on par with Lesser's?
