1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    This fabric has been sitting around since April, and I'm just not going to use it, at least not in the next year. I've picked up too much ready-to-wear tailored clothing, and have yet to find a CMT tailor I'm thrilled with. These are both from everyone's favorite eBay fabric supplier, and are from English mills. So: [​IMG] 80% worsted wool, 20% silk. Beige/black/blue. 5.4 yards. 9 oz. Would be great for a spring/summer suit or a sportcoat. I had thought about a three piece with a lapeled vest. $80 shipped in the US. 80% lambswool, 20% cashmere tweed. Navy/rust. 2.7 yards. 14 oz. Would be fantastic for a fall sportcoat. SOLD! I'll ship overseas and to Canada, but check with me for a shipping price. Final sale. Paypal preferred.

    The lambswool/cashmere blend is sold. I'll take offers on the first if anyone is interested.

    Jamison, who, pray tell, is "everyone's favorite eBay fabric supplier"? And do you know what English mills he or she gets the wool from? Is it the good stuff like Lesser, Holland & Sherry, et al.?

    Jamison, do you still have that awesome mid-gray with purple/pink windowpane material?

    I would say it's definitely below top grade. If you were having a $4k bespoke suit made, I'd go elsewhere. But for lower range custom, you could definitely do worse.

    Everyone's favorite ebay fabric supplier is "how6955". He is a jobber who gets some great material, and is an all around good seller, but his shipping fees are pretty high. Unfortunately, he doesn't specify which mills, except when it is Holland & Sherry or Dormeuil.

    Thanks, Jamison. I'll look into his offerings.

    not mine. Indeed, I agree on the high shipping fees. He doesn´t specify much, but what he does later turns to be something completely different.
    Cheaper blends, shorter lengths and damaged fabrics are common in that eBay shop.
