    As per title, I'm looking for a particular fabric to feed an unhealthy addiction. Jacketing material only, not subtle fine-scale glen check suiting material types. Flannel or tweed only. I'd prefer mid-grey or lighter, cream/tan undertones are fine. I'm looking for something that looks like either of these examples: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    There is one in the Dormeuil Kirgyz White book tough it is much greyer than the pics you have posted and the overcheck is also a more prominent purple.

    Thanks for that. Do you remember the fabric composition?

    60% Kirgyz white, 40% merino. Kirgyz is supposed to come from a sheep-goat and supposedly Genghis Khan used to line his own tent with the stuff. Love the marketing bullshit [​IMG]

    I've got two jackets in my store with exactly the pattern you are looking for.

    One is a Loro Piana wool, probably an 8-8.5 oz... Really nice looking jacket!

    The other is a Coppley, about the same weight with more of a flannel texture...
    I'll post pics asap
