    Really? I've not seen any movement, Fox used to be on the pricier side of the trade for mills at £42/m ex-VAT.

    Maybe we're located in different countries, and so we have different distributors? In the US cloth prices have risen in the past year or so pretty much across the board. Fox's retail prices have gone up a lot more than their trade prices. You should expect a much smaller price increase if it's your tailor who's ordering the cloth.

    Very valid point. 5 years ago for the retail in Hong Kong, H&S was more expensive than HoE and now they are the same price level I think. In the same manner, in terms of relativitiy, I now feel LL less expensive compared to others.

    Anyway WEB price or RRP is not the main stream price they are dealing (trade price hike < retail price hike) so it is more marketing thing (plus to deter CMT).

    @SartodiNapoli, that's a reasonable way of listing your stuff. See if you can embed the photos though, I for one, hate clicking the links.

    You should probably start a B&S thread for this, and not clutter this thread.

    Thoughts on this fabric? I LOVE the swatch, but feel as though I'd have an insanely difficult time making outfits with it.

    I’m confused why that would be tough. Works great with staple gray, brown, tan pants. Blue, gray, brown solid tie. Throw in a complimentary square. It’s a bold pattern, no question, but dead simple to coordinate.

    For a sportscoat with gray flannels would be the obvious answer.

    This is a summer version of a tartan design. Not my favourite from the Caccioppoli summer jacketing bunch (which is very tasteful imo) but I don't think it would be very difficult to pair it with any shade of grey trousers.

    I would pass on that cloth. Too busy. I would get sick of it after a season. Ymmv obviously. I don’t mind loud plaids for winter weight cloths, but prefer simpler patterns, solids, and near solids for the Summer.

    Thanks for the input gents. Wouldn't be my #1 choice, to be sure, but it's very intriguing, especially for LA summers.
