    Hi, im in the market for a few suits, and i have a number of fabrics to choose from, from a few different mills.

    my question to anyone familiar with fabrics, is, is there a significant variation in quality inbetween the following mills, which mills make cheaper fabrics, etc, etc. or is this something i shouldn't be overly concerned with?

    Really any information is helpful, thanks.

    -Ethomas

    -lanificio TG. di fabio

    -marzotto

    -reda

    -trabaldo togna

    -zignone

    -abito

    -ermenegildo zegna

    -lanificio ing. Loro Piana

    Unfortunately, I know very little about cloth mills though I find it fascinating. You may find useful information in this compendium-of-sorts thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/328245/fabric-brands-ranking. Only a few on your list shows up though. Quoting Badsha from that thread, "It can be quite overwhelming. I don't think there is a quick answer to your question." Best of luck to you.
