    Honestly, can you guys explain what you mean?

    Jacket fronts never cover the crotch (open quarters) so what are we talking about here? (go ahead, I'm a grown-up, I can hear it)

    not quite, it's a basketweave and requires a worsted yarn. so it can be any fiber with some good combed luster.

    Nvm. Thanks for clarifying. Though I'll admit I'm suspicious that a worsted yarn is absolutely necessary to create that specific weave.

    I think I bitched about the price of one the subscriptions on this thread, and told another member he can find most of the commissions in other fabric books. A few weeks later my password didn't work. That's all that comes to mind right now. That stuff is expensive and heavy!

    I think some people don't use the thumb as a point of reference. Some people like the jacket to be tad bit longer, past their crotch I guess.

    I see. It sounds like a different way to say "cover the seat". Unless I'm missing something about human anatomy, that's the same level...

    They also seemed to be running out of good ideas. Have you ever signed up for that site? I found my self selling off a lot of the subscriptions, and I'm still stuck with a hopsack suit :(. Maybe its for the best i got blocked.

    Has there been any subscriptions worthwhile in the past year?
