Any idea of what kind of cloth this is? Dupioni? Do any all wools come in a slub texture?

^ Sounds about right. My father has an all silk suit that looks a little like that

Finish looks way too dry to be Dupioni.

Whatever it is, that's an incredible looking fabric. Do you have any other pictures?

That's nice gray, Ed. I want a light gray suit, but not a plain worsted. Want something with some roughness and texture. Could that top photo be an exaggerated pic-n-pick? sharkskin? Maybe it is linen.

I have a few pairs of trousers the cloth of which looks very like this. They are a light wool/linen blend - cooler in summer than wool alone. I suspect the cloth in the image is something similar.

Nice! Is that from a particular book? Great shade of gray. And good amount of slubs.
