    I know linen is typically for summer and tweed/herringbone are generally reserved for fall but what are the rules by season? I am mostly curious about suits but shirt patterns (gingham, plaid etc) would be interesting also.
    Thanks.

    With respect to suiting material, the British firm Holland & Sherry has some wonderful fall and winter examples which capture the spirit of these seasons: Holland & Sherry

    God only knows how much the cashmere blend is per yard. I was just in the Britex fabric store and saw that their cashmere plaids were close to $400 per yard. They said I'd need about 2.5 yards for a jacket. I suspect that certain tariffs and taxes on import fabrics are escaped by working with the visiting Asian tailors.
