    @gdl203 , what if I would like a restock of this fabric by Formosa? Is that an option or will I have to order the requisite length and schedule a MTM/MTO appointment?

    We have a few meters at the office reserved for bespoke and MTO/MTM customers, so we could get the fabric to Naples to get a suit made. At this point, there's not enough interest here in the re-run cloth to supplement with a size restock.

    This thread has been dead for a while...but I would really like to see this cloth re-made.

    I'm willing to commit to 5 meters...maybe even two full suit lengths if it will help us get the order over the edge.

    You can put up the money to order the 60 meters required for the custom run of the cloth.

    Then you can sell me a couple of meters for my personal use to recoup a small percentage of your expenses.

    Journal of Style will restock the old Mario Zegna Houndstooth once in a while. You may want to check the site to see what he has available.

    That looks more like a micro-houndtooth

    Concordia - 4.5
    Burghler - 4.5
    LordSuperb - 4.5
    Murl - 3.5
    vvv - 3.5
    PCK1 - 5 meters

    These are the amounts people were interested in previously...though some may have dropped out by now...

    So we are at 25.5 meters and we need an additional 34.5 to make it work.

    Greg / NMWA might have been in too, don't remember, so it might be less than that. If Cao is in for a suit... Even less

    I'm willing to bump my order up a bit to get it through the door...I'd opt for a 3 piece plus an extra pair of trousers if necessary.

    I do love this cloth...I think in grayscale flannels it is as classy as a solid gray and the PoW.
