    I routinely provide my own cloth for tailoring. I would be interested to know of any good sources for cloth outside of the usual retail stores. I have found Textile King in London invaluable, but you have to know your cloth to benefit from their end of bolt, prototype limited run, personally commissioned (and defaulted on) fabrics. They have some very esoteric cloth (all UK), including Solaro, super
    150's tropical worsted, etc. Stock changes quickly. Any other recommendations? NYC's Beckenstein is really two stores, the odds and ends, and retail Scabal. I'm mainly interested in UK or Italian shops.
