Anyone here that owns outerwear in the wool silk basketweave and can comment on how they like it? I'm particularly interested in the shirt jacket for when the fabric comes back.
I have the darker brown version in a shirt jacket and it's great. I'm considering the blue version of this cloth in the flight jacket style as an alternative to a jean jacket. You can't go wrong with this cloth for a lighter-weight option. The drape is perfect.

Awesome, thanks! The dark brown version is the one I'm most interested in. Is it really a summer jacket in terms of weight?

I live in the northeast, so it’s perfect for summer. For the NE, I’d call it a three-season jacket. If you live in warmer climates, it can go year round. They will suggest a tiny bit of room to accommodate layering...depending on where you live. You can’t go wrong with this cloth. Go for it!

I enjoy wearing mine on those cooler summer evenings, transitions from spring-summer and summer-fall, and over a sweater in spring/fall. I find that it works best for me in ~45-65F conditions depending on what else I'm wearing.

Thanks a lot! Is yours the dark brown shirt jacket too?

The summer preview of all fabrics looks just awesome. This upcoming season will be the best in a long time, I have high hopes. A few new models by the looks of it too… :-D

If you're a made to measure client you can check the fabrics page and it'll show the new fabrics for the summer collection.

I’m sure soon they will release a new collection of MTO products as I’m pretty sure they said 15/05 was the last day to order from their spring collection.

Sometimes that can be more helpful too as you can see the full garment in a fabric rather than just a swatch!

Raspberry, peach and ice are the standouts to me. Maybe that lemon color
