I think Saphir makes a product for that.
Remind me not to buy any second-hand clothing from pB. Or have dinner at his house...
Nice, Eustace. I'll be interested to see what you do with those, as I have Dugdale's 21 oz twill being made up as trousers right now and am thinking of buying out of the English and Town Classics book.
Trousers from the twill, and a DB from the 13oz. worsted. Imo, the E&TC book is fantastic and a great value.
This is probably a good thread to post my question.
I'm looking for a 13 or 14 ounce pick-and-pick/sharkskin in a medium darkish grey for a suit. What are my options?
I see Scabal has one in their Classics book (cloth number 701753). What few books of normal cloth Scabal still makes seem like good quality, but I have no experience with the Classics book.
Also, there is one in the H Lesser 13 ounce book, but it looks too dark (cloth number 29764). I ordered something from the old Lesser 13 ounce book. Is the new one the same? Also, would there be an up charge from a Savile Row tailor for Lesser now that it's owned by Harrisons?
Schofield & Smith (forget the name of the book)
Does Smith and Co have a website? I type their name into google and all I get are pages of internet clothing fora posts (geez).
Also, I suppose J&J Minnis do a brisk business in this sort of thing as well.
I don't think they do. Your tailor should have the Botany book though - its a fairly popular range.
Is Minnis fresco 0517 suitable for a blazersuit?
But wouldn't it be a bit dark for informal blazerwear?
Minnis Classic has versions in medium gray, dark gray and charcoal.
Dugdale English and Town Classics. Some gray pick-and-picks at 13.5 oz.
Check out 9434 (up the middle mid gray) and 9435 (darker gray short of what Dugdale call "charcoal").
For one reason or another I have laying around 4 yards of new lumbs Golden Bale in charcoal, 4 yards of Loro Piana wave in French navy and 4 yards of Dormeuil Kirgyz in navy with a fine self stripe. If anyone wants to buy any of these cloths from me or better yet have me make them up a suit PM me and save me from myself......
pics and pricing.
and what is the kirgyz book like?
