    Very cool. Similar to the LL blue donegal herringbone although with more flecks. Should be lovely.

    Does the price Garrison Bespoke quoted you include the cloth as well?

    Sorry, that was confusing - by GB, I was referring to Graham Browne in London.

    Nice. Like them all, except the topmost. I saw it as well, and the teal was just a bit much for me.

    I remember Frank saying it was 13-14oz. - is that right? Could be a bit rough in May.

    Good day gentlemen,

    I did a search but couldn't find an answer, so I'm here to ask the experts;

    Are any of the tailors you use able to get LP Storm System fabrics for outerwear? I was hoping to find something in a grey tweed to have an overcoat made, open to other ideas as well,


    Thanks!!

    I know Frank has used it before. He was making a brown herringbone for someone. I'd like a coat with this as well at some point.

    From what I know, the supply of Storm System fabrics to bespoke tailors is very limited. Raph has used them in the past, but you kinda have to go with whatever he can get his hands on at the moment (i.e. don't expect to have your choice of color, style etc.).

    There's a great broad grey herringbone in the Dugdale overcoating selection.
