    Hi,

    I'm looking to get a suit made for my wedding in June - something unlined and soft shouldered. I'm happy for it to be pretty casual and would like it to be made of a fairly tactile fabric, but also something weather appropriate for London summer.

    I'm weighing up two different cloth options from Harrisons of Edinburgh and was wondering if anyone had any advice on the positives and negatives of each option? The first is a wool, mohair, silk, linen blend in a navy herringbone and the second is a hopsack style navy wool. Thanks!

    The two up there are very different types of cloth, suit for different purposes and performance. If you're looking for an all rounder to wear in the summer, Harrisons has a bunch called Frontier, high twist wool at 300g. Fits for all purpose in Summer and doesn't look shiny (not worsted). Heaps of colour choices too. Best place to start, before venturing into the blends like above.
