Is that also in the Dugdale book? I know there is some overlap in pattern, if not in actual quality.

Again-- looks very similar. Don't know if literally so, or if they just copied the design for more mass production. Any tailors out there with spies in the fabric community?

I’ve never looked at Dugdale for linen so I’m not sure. But my understanding is that LL uses Ulster to weave its linen.

Does anyone have experience with ordering from Harrison’s Indigo bunch? Was thinking of ordering a jacket for spring/summer in DFW area.

It's from Ulster. There's an entire bunch of that pattern in different colors. They're a little spongey, and very tweed-like.

Not compared LL linen with Ulster stuff but it would not surprise me that they are the same thing. LL Brisa is identical to Lovat Bard at 2x price.

Dear Fellow Members,

Wait...what have you just done?

You unveiled a "greatly-kept" industrial secret, and... someone may be reading!

I am astonished.
