1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hi Guys,

    Here are some fabrics that have been collecting dust for a while so I figure no need to keep them hanging around for now. Really nice stuff and some I may have made up down the line, but just have my tailor get from the mill. We'll see. Any questions let me know.

    20% discount for anyone who takes all the fabrics in one fell swoop!

    From top left moving clockwise:

    Brisbane Moss - Milton Panama weave. Feels like a cotton canvas of sorts. 11oz and 3.5 meters. Color is essentially darker than Air Force Blue and lighter than Navy. Should make for a nice casual Summer suit. Here's another previous picture (disregard the gray). $70 shipped CONUS. SOLD

    Holland & Sherry - Crispaire Fresco book. 11oz and 3 meters. This fabric is now discontinued. A nice dolphin blue color with orange and burgundy stripes. Unique and somewhat Mad Men / Pete Campbell-ish in color. $185 shipped CONUS.

    Here's a closeup shot of the Holland & Sherry fabric as made up by yfyf:

    Harrisons - Moonbeam. 11oz and 2.5 meters. A medium chocolate brown with navy windowpane. The fabric is made of lambswool and angoran and is incredibly soft and stretchy and comfortable when made up. $85 shipped CONUS. SOLD

    Fox Flannel - 11oz and 4 meters. My personal favorite grey POW due to the blue overchecks mixed with red vertical stripes along the boxes. Here's an additional picture below. $125 shipped CONUS. SOLD

    Minnis - #0500 Fresco - 3.5 meters. I'll see how the LL Piuma travel cloth comes out and if not to my satisfaction will just re-order this from my tailor and have it made up. There is a mark on one part of the fabric, but the tailor should easily be able to cut around it. $160 shipped CONUS. SOLD

    Actually, the Minnis Fresco is also still available. So it's that and the H&S Crispaire Fresco still available as of now.

    Not big at all. A bit smaller than one's pinky nail. The J&J Minnis Fresco just sold though. Only the Holland & Sherry Crispaire Fresco remains.

    Thanks for the reply. I was, sadly, interested in the Minnis.

    B/c I don't see "SOLD," I ask: the Minnis Fresco is sold, correct? PM if not!
