    Thanks, this guy gets it. The Caccioppoli one is in the right direction, although too Chanel-looking.

    Any recommendation for a solaro wool in herringbone weave? Other than the regular smith woolens one. Thanks!

    Sounds like Ed Sheehan Thinking Out Loud. Play something from The Time on your next video.

    Oh yeah, and some more sport coats.

    The Loro Piana Summer Tasmanian book has many colorways in solaro weaves.

    A few years ago the Moorbrook mill closed, which specialized in jacketings and coatings from rarer cloths; cashmere but more importantly vicuña and guanaco. They now exist in name alone, like so many of my favorite mills. However, when they were closing out I snagged a bolt of natural guanaco cloth. It's one of the two wild camelids that live in the Andes, the other being vicuña. To my knowledge, nobody since Moorbrook has made a cloth in it, with the exception of Dormeuil, who made a blend called guanashina that apparently costs 25k for a suit. Anyway, I have no use for the remaining 12meters in the bolt, and so want to get rid of it to anyone interested, for cost price. Send me a PM if you're interested, even just for more details. Oh, and please excuse my photography. Screen Shot 2017-06-25 at 14.15.50.png Screen Shot 2017-06-25 at 14.15.17.png

    Fabric Fiends, Cloth Chaps, and all you Textile Types:

    I'm looking for a needle in a haystack.

    I have this Martin Greenfield BBGF seersucker jacket in cream and navy and want to have some pants made to match the jacket.

    I've looked at several on-line fabric stores and several m2m companies but haven't found anything remotely close.

    I know it's a long shot but I thought I'd ask.
