    Here are some pics of the John Molloy donegal tweeds: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I am loathe to remove the bolts from the packaging lest I find myself incompetent to re-pack it before I visit my tailor.
    Looks very nice- I really like the blue/green and I almost never like that color.

    Would Minnis 0510 be good for an odd jacket?

    The pattern is very small. I was thinking a DB suit.

    Any recommendations for a black and white check with a dominate blue overcheck which could be used for an odd jacket then? [​IMG]

    Sounds too much like a suiting.

    Does anyone know the details of this fabric, specifically what book it is in? I have been looking for something exactly like this for awhile. This is from PhatGuido's blog (I pm'd him and got no response) and he describes it thusly:

    Suit#1 Loro Piana 270 gm wool/cashmere POW plaid with warm tones & blue highlights . Jacket will have 2 button, single breast, 2 curved hip patch pockets,"barchetta" breast pocket, soft shoulder aka "spalla camicia", twin vent, 1/2 lined in navy, canvassed, & 4 kissing functioning button hole sleeves. Pantaloons will be flat front, natural waist rise, no belt loops, side adjusters, button fly, looser leg from knee down & 5cm cuffs. All hand finished.

    Not sure if you are looking for Mina to make this for you, but she carries a lot of LP, I've seen a few similar fabrics, look in the orange book that starts with a C, forgot the brand, they have LP make them stuff.

    Thanks Ed. I actually sent her the pic and unfortunately she didn't see this one in any of the books she has.

    Anyone has experience with Islay Woollen Mill? Quality of their tweed? Will they ship internationally?

    I've seen alot of similar fabrics too. Maybe not 100% the same but very similar in many books. That one is really great though, I can understand why you want it. Love the orange and blue.

    dont know what book it is, but as its from P johnson, its not from a caccioppoli book.
    check out the last swatch on http://www.foxflannel.com/tailoringbunches.php (FS625)
    im pretty sure Mina doesnt carry Fox flannel, but you can buy direct from them and mina is always happy to work CMT.

    if you still prefer the one from Guido's blog, have a look thru his, ethan and the p johnson tumblrs as they talk about the loro piana books and some similar designs there.

    That looks like jacketing to me. Are you going to get a suit made of it ?

    That is not jacketing, not by a long shot. Come on man, you've been here 2 years. [​IMG]
