As the autumn / fall swings around for those in the Northern hemisphere, how about some serious old-school suiting?

For those who don't know, Super 70s was one of the first 'Supers' numbers and was some of the best cloth available 30+ years ago.

I have four bolts today:

1. Bulmer & Lumb / Harrison 2080 worsted flannel in a dark grey. I think this has recently been brought back by Taylor & Lodge / Dugdale, but this is the original in a ~16oz weight. 3.5m length with a 1800g piece weight. £40

2. Super 70s classic navy pinstripe, selvedge reads "Super 70s All Wool Made in Huddersfield England". ~14-15oz, 3m with a 1350g piece weight £40

3. Super 70s alternating blue / grey stripe on a navy background, selvedge reads "Super 70s Worsted - Made in Huddersfield England". ~16-16oz, 3.15m length with a 1550g piece weight. £40

4. Super 70s multi-stripe with red, yellow and turquoise on a a dark olive twill background. ~14-15oz, 2.9m length with a 1350g piece weight. £20

Prices are collected from London - I can post at cost worldwide.
