    Does anyone know of any fabric houses making linen twill or gabardine? I've been thinking of a cream linen suit for next summer and thought that a twill or gabardine weave would not only look nice, but possibly help prevent wrinkles. Any thoughts?

    I could be wrong but I believe the wrinkle-resistance of twills only comes out in heavier fabrics in pronounced twills like cavalry twill.

    Linen, twill, and gabardine are slightly stiff which make them more crisp.

    I would love a cavalry twill in cream linen. Now who makes it?

    This is linen on a twill weave. Jodek Int. in Beverly Hills has a range of this cloth. This jacket is from 2004 and hasn't been pressed since it was made. The weave resembles a denim weave more than gabardine or calvary twill. It isn't more stiff but the cloth feels more wavy instead of crinkly, if that makes any sense.
