I am looking for advice on the quality of fabric used in suites. I am after a light Wool in a plain Charcoal. I am focusing on this variable before I start thinking about cut and build quality. I am close to getting a MTM made and was doing the rounds of all the stores which are close to where I work to see if there might be something worthwhile OTR. Some of these stores claim that the fabric is English while one had no idea (but that's ok because it was a very cheap suite) Can you please advise what I should look for in the fabric regardless of whether I go OTR or MTM. I live in Sydney so it needs to be versatile year round. If it is an English fabric does that mean all English fabrics are good? How should the fabric feel in terms of texture? Should it have a gloss or sheen? If it does what does that mean? Is there any particular weave I should be aware of or stay clear of? Is there anything else I need to know? I plan to wear it 2-3 times a week in rotation and hope for it to last a few years. I am concerned that a poor quality fabric may make it either age quicker in appearance, or quite simply fall apart. I don't need the John Lobb of suite fabric however I wish to understand quality so I don't go with an option that is poor quality and find later I could have got better for the same dollars all other things being equal (fit, cut, style and etc) Looking for wise minds on fabric. Other question to follow shortly.
