    Not sure, likely woodhouse dead stock that Rubinacci has a hold off.

    Why not the Minnis 520, beloved by the SF iGents?

    Also, who makes tobacco fresco? - that sounds very interesting.

    Pic of it? not sure what M520 is...

    Same comment as the AF blue - LH house fabric likely made my woodhouse.

    520 is a very nice Minnis AF blue but it's 9/10 whereas those Wodehouses are a lot lighter.

    That tobacco fresco does sound sweet. I recently got a swatch of the Minnis 0520 and I like it. It reminds me of the LH house fresco/hopsack 1995 in that it's sort of a lighter shade of navy and looks like it's got several colors of blue threads in it. I will probably join the crowd and get a suit made of it also. [​IMG]

    I'd love a fresco weave in a mid-brown / cream houndstooth but the fabric has eluded me for years.

    I missed the 520 because it appears pretty dark on the Huddersfield web site.

    But here it in in real life, courtesy this very forum.

    Thinking about having a summer jacket made up in either the blue or red (linen/wool blend) and maybe a pair of pants in the solid dark brown. Thoughts?
