    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.

    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...

    Fairly easy get if you're based in the UK. Loads of UK eBay sellers have their ranges too.
