You're welcome. They seem to have hidden their website quite efficiently: http://www.drapersitaly.com/.
Edit: and then I saw C&A's post...
Thanks to you both...
you can find most draper's offerings in the uk
under their original brands
and for their english cloths
they source it from the same few weavers
as other 'brands'
Ah, so Drapers is a cloth merchant (hope I'm using the right term) like Scabal and not a weaver?
That must be the reason why the tailor hadn't heard of Drapers before, makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up.
So which book would I need to look in to find the wool/linen/silk mixed fabric above. Seems more Loro Piana than VBC to me...?
I would just like to illustrate how unreliable the pics of ebay cloth sellers (even established ones like British Fabrics) are.
Here is the photo from the listing
And here is how the cloth actually looks like
Nice one. First pic: no thanks. Second pic: yes please.
I've a sportscoat made of this fabric. It's stunning.
Cotton with a bit of wool:
edit: pic not loading correctly
That's a fantastic fabric...
I can't believe the difference between the picture on the website and the real thing..
It turned out well this time... but it has turned out badly for many people. But Howard says he just bought himself an 11 MP camera...
I don't think the camera is the problem...
