I strongly dislike "shiny/soft "modern" cloth". Fortunately my clientele does too. I don't dislike Lesser cloth, just don't think it is that much better than other cloths in the market today. Had a client in the 80's that only wore Lesser cloth. Made him over 40 suits from 2 Lesser books because he loved the cloth that much. He stopped looking at other cloths. I like a cloth with a strong body to weight ratio. There are light weight cloths that have great body, tailor well and will hold up over time. There are heavier cloths that have no guts and don't tailor well and never look good. There are good supers and bad supers. I'm more about the inherent qualities of the cloth and how well they make up under the needle than anything else.
