    Thanks. It's a Dormeuil, but I couldn't give you the cloth number or book sorry.

    Many thanks. Really like that cloth though; anyone else have a sense where it's from?

    Can anyone here offer their opinion on the london lounge everest cashmere, it is a 36 oz (1000g) overcoating fabric that is currently only offered in navy blue.

    Do you know the price? 1kg cashmere per meter can't be cheap.

    450 gbp/meter, insane i know, but in all honesty if they put the LL camel overcoating fabric into production, I think I would go with that. I was just wondering how 1000g cashmere fabric would work as an overcoat

    I ask myself the same question, for me 600-700 gram would be ideal. Just imagine lugging 3kilo around when you are not wearing it.

    I have a DB overcoat in 600-610g Minnis. It is pretty heavy and good to about the 10-20 degrees Fahrenheit. I doubt anyone has anything like 1000g cashmere, so you won't know until you try. Please report back after you have it made up. :stirpot:

    ^ Yes if the camel gets enough subscribers I will definitely go with it, but the everest 1kg cashmere is just too heavy and the color too boring for me to commit to
