That's nice! I've been looking for a large-scale PoW for quite a while now. Do you have the cloth number and a pic of the swatch?
Yep, the # is: S1005 15588/C3

The closest to a swatch I have is this picture



I didn't actually order a swatch myself, I bought this on impulse.

^ that's pretty brave, ordering a length without seeing it first. Did they refuse to send you a swatch?

Oh no, they asked me first thing if I wanted a swatch.

I figured I've seen enough pictures of it, and I couldn't go wrong with picking this one. That and I'm also impatient.

I've always been fascinated by giant PoW check fabrics, and I wanted a casual coat in a light-ish grey colour. This basically fit the bill and looks striking as well.

It helps that they have a picture up of the fabric already made into a coat.

Well, they knew that this fabric is a winner!

Keep us on the loop and please do post pictures of the process in the Ongoing Bespoke Projects Thread.

Best,

This how the texture of M&E Natural collection seems.
The white in the PoW check seems brighter than I thought, which is a good thing for me.

How stretchy and dense is the cloth?

I have some Magee herringbone donegal tweed in a swatch, and it's quite stretchy and not super dense.

I think the white one is dogtooth pattern. I don’t have the book in front of me now but I have to say that the fabric is the same as the photos in Instagram. The cloth is pretty dense And spongy.

Flying, how did you place your order? I can't find a website for the company.

Hey man,

I called them, and then the salesperson gave me their e-mail, and I went from there.

Phone #: +44 1484 848840

Calling is probably the best bet for quick response. I didn't get a response when I sent them a message on Facebook or their sales e-mail on instagram.

I'm debating having this lining, I like the dog/animal/nature theme. I've never had a cool lining before, so I don't know of the overall effect.

I wonder if it'd be too busy combined with the coat? Or does it not matter because it's just lining?

Curious; do you play Skyrim? Can all Horkers fly or are you unique?

Don't know if you should use this lining.
Personaly I think it's a waste. Like hanging art work in a closet

Use the lining to make a necktie and or a pocket square
