    I realize the bunch has been discontinued, but I really like this forum favorite dark brown herringbone. Does anyone know where I can pick up a few meters for future use? I contacted Scabal, but didn't get a very helpful response. They just told me it has been discontinued, even though I had stated the same in my email to them. Has it completely sold out? Not a scrap left on earth?

    Ok...75 views - not replys.

    I was sort of joking before, but maybe it really has vanished. If there was a selling off like there was with the Minnis Rangoon, I must have missed it.

    That is a beautiful fabric. I'd love to get my hands on it too.

    According to the caption in this video, Scabal will have Shetland in the 2013/2014 winter collection. Anyone know anything about this? Breakthrough?

    Scabal still makes something very similar. I have the book in my office and will post a picture Monday.

    Here the two images of the same fabric as worn by Vox. I also tried to source this fabric a few years back, would love to see it remake.

    I heard back from Scabal.

    There will be Shetland and Donegal book that comes out in July... but they don't know if there will be anything like the 800374 :facepalm:

    Handsome Boy,
    This is from the "finest jacketing" books. Unfortunately, it is a fairly lightweight tweed (220 grams) so it may not be what you are looking for.

    Thanks for the heads up. This is great news I hope the quality it's the same as before.
