    Some recent additions to the cloth hoarding.

    1) Vibrant Navy Blue with Burgundy windowpane Lumb's Golden Bale by Lesser, 11oz (thanks Rob!) - can't wait to get this suit made up! I hope there's enough fabric to also squeeze out a vest for a 3 piece SB suit. Because why not? The windowpane is a touch more subtle than seen here. You really can hardly tell it's there unless you're in strong lighting. Very soft to the touch.

    2) Houndstooth Gun Club, 14oz - I bought a cap in this fabric this Summer and really liked it so tracked it down. Not sure of the maker as no selvedge. Could this be the Gun Club (albeit with Houndsteeth) that I've been looking for all these years? We shall see. Regardless, I love it's wood-sy character with its colors of brown, tan, green and orange. It has a fantastic stretchy quality that seems like it will very comfortable.

    Those are both pretty sweet David, especially the tweedy one. Looking forward to seeing them made up.
