Cloth BUY, SELL, TRADE (B/S/T) THREAD

Hello,

In the past couple of years I have found myself looking for cloth from a specific run and or year. In the search for them I found that there are some folks who happen to have an extra meter or two on hand, and more often than not, an extra length they just haven't gotten to making up.

I am creating this thread for members to offer up their Unfunded Liabilities. As the title suggests, you can buy, sell or trade your unused lengths of cloth.

I am modeling it after the Alden B/S/T thread here: https://www.styleforum.net/threads/the-alden-buy-sell-trade-b-s-t-thread.645611/

General guidelines borrowed from the Alden B/S/T thread:

- Post clear images of the product
- Include price, condition, shipping estimation for international versus US, etc.

DL-

This is actually the very reason I started this thread. The B&S is a pain in the ass and impossible to have a discussion around as well.
agreed, every now and then i go on a tear and check it every other day but then i'll also forget about it for months at a time...it'll be interesting to see if this threat takes off if it stays in my mind more frequently...

As my offices continue their march into full on jeans and a t-shirt, I may have a few lengths of suiting available to trade for jacketing. Will post photos once I'm back home.

okay, I'll take the a swing: I have 3m of a gunclub-ish pattern (see images below) from the Dugdale White Rose Sporting book. I believe it is around 300g per meter, but I can double check on a scale if people are interested

Willing to sell for $125 for the whole piece shipped CONUS, or willing to trade (or cash plus trade) for 3m of the following:
- navy Minnis mock leno (or fresco)
- a navy glenplaid (summer weight or linen)
- a 'chunkier' gun club (like this Abraham Moon one)
- a grey herringbone tweed (like this Harris Tweed one)

This would make a nice overshirt/chorecoat :teach:

Check with Ed on the GP. I believe I have that exact fabric (wool, mohair, and silk) that I got from him. He may have some leftovers.

Good luck. It's a super steezy cloth. Awesome handle. I'm dithering on mine, but really looking forward to having it made up.
