    It's possible that they have stopped production of some fabrics. I'll go back and check my swatches, but I think the ones apropos posted are the ones that Harrisons sent to me recently.

    Veryyy nice!

    Does moonbeam make up well for trousers too? Or should it be mostly used for jacketing?

    Yeah I read that thread and read about the stretching, hence my fears of making it up into a pair of pants. [​IMG]

    I would not make pants in Moonbeam.

    Now some of these might work as DB jackets, if you're allergic to pure tweed in that style. Although Glorious 12th probably better suited to the multiple overlaps.

    The jacket looks good, is that NSM?

    Thanks. No, not NSM, this was made by a tailor in Japan.

    [​IMG] Disappointment fills my heart. I could only imagine how infinitely comfortable it would feel.

    You can have pants made,they are just not going to be durable and/or may not keep their shape well.

    FWIW, Raphael (the NY tailor) believes Moonbeam trousers should make up quite well.

    I might proceed with this experiment. [​IMG]

    Either way I think I will have enough suits that this won't be a large issue.
