If anyone has any experience with this book, I would appreciate some feedback. I'm particularly interested in this fabric:

I used a end bolt of Hardy stuff (95% wool/5% cash) for a MTM sportcoat, much nicer than the Vitale Barbereis (S110s) from a later commission. FWIW, I've never worn fabrics from the higher/highest end mills like C.Barbera, Lesser, et al.

Thanks guys. How is the cloth to touch? - does it essentially feel like a heavier version of Moonbeam?

It's like cashmere with guts.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
