Hey,

Despite a search I didn;t find much in the way of a review of this fabric. Lots of mention; no real assessment of the fabric merits.

I know it is supposed to be wrinkle and stain resistant, but how is the hand and the drape. Is it worth getting at Isaia price points (even on sale)?

thanks.

It is always worth getting Isaia on sale.

Took a leap and placed the order with STP.

If I don't like it, I'll send it back. My biggest gripe with STP is that they don't really tell you what the seasonal weight of the fabrics are.

I am hoping this will be all-season...or at very least, spring/fall weight.

I have a Belvest tuxedo in it. It is very tightly woven and has a hard finish that I would describe as summer weight. It almost has a silk finish, but this may be Belvest's version. Good old STP will take it back if it's too hard for you.

The one complaint I have with STP is that they do not provide fabric weights in their info. 9/10 times, the stuff is not suitable for upstate NY winter wear and would be too warm for our summers too. But their return policy makes up for it, I guess.
