    I've been going bananas trying to find this Zegna brown linen for a longer than I care to admit:

    https://www.tessin.it/top-brands/er...gildo-zegna.html?___store=en&___from_store=it

    But they only seem to have enough for some pants. It also seems pretty pricey for the amount of fabric. I need 3.5-4m- enough for a suit. The dudes at Zegna implied it wasn't made anymore. They wanted to help but didn't really know how to. Anyone have any ideas where I could track this down?

    This is a common linen color. Choose another fabric distributor.

    I've stayed away from that myself through a fear of appearing to be wearing an ill-fitting jacket (ie boy in his fathers clothes). I'll look into it.

    This ebay seller should have some if you email them http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/yorkshirefabric
    Or there's Baird McNutt through their online site John Hanna https://jhannaltd.com/collections/glenariff?page=1

    I have similar Zegna linen blends on the buy and sell forum.

    Finally watched all those videos. GOOD JOB. Those suits are well done.

    If I were you i'd stick with Double Breasted from here on out.

    Ha, you almost knocked over Patrizio in one of those videos. You're a mix between James Earl Jones and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Keep the videos coming.

    Suit vlogs, the new successor to photographing your dinner plate?

    Always cover the crotch knuckle, lads.
