Not italian, but W. Bill has or had a some great green herringbone tweed.
Also Abraham moon
Be aware that the canvas is too difficult for some stitching. I got a refusal from NsM to work on it.
They do a lot of hand sewing, though. Don't know if SR's machines can tolerate it.
yeah i assumed OP was talking about a cotton twill, from the pic and description that looks/sounds more like awning canvas.
Caccioppoli has a great green Donegal tweed that is lighter in weight
Loro Piana Jacketing book has two gorgeous examples, one a bit lighter, one darker. W. Bill has a great swatch in one of their jacketing books currently. Finally, I saw the newest Ariston book today and there is a great donegal if that would work. It has some silk in it, so not a heavyweight...
Is it possible to order fabric from Moon?
Fairly easy get if you're based in the UK. Loads of UK eBay sellers have their ranges too.
