It's a lightweight fabric that feels even lighter (probably the silk content). It breathes well and wrinkles fall out over night. The latter was a concern when I ordered it, but it's turned out great. It has some texture, but not as much as the swatches in the Indigo book from what I've seen.I actually would like to lean from your Icarus experience. I digitally looked at the bunch and some of them looks good and I assume should be good for hot / humid weather, right ? is that a jacket only or suiting ?
660755 is the standard navy, and 660756 is the dark navy. My blazer on the right in this post is a 660756I would appreciate it.
Thank you. With the slight bit of cashmere in the Cape Horn does that give a little bit of nap or texture? Do you think it would work equally well for a suit or do you think it works better for a blazer?660755 is the standard navy, and 660756 is the dark navy.

Overall, I like the fabric although per the conversation following the post I would have made a few stylistic differences in my blazer (but live and learn!). I feel light it is certainly softer than my Drapers suit on the left
I love the way the suit turned out. Its a heavier flannel (I don't remember the exact weight) than other suits I have, no issues with trouser bagging, creases stay put. The colors (chestnut and chocolate) are very rich and deep, Douglas's pics on IG caught my eye. I am sure there are similar choc brown plaid flannels, but this one is very nice. Although Fox said it was a limited edition (not sur how limited), so, not sure how much is available.How do you like the fabric?
Its a suiting book primarily, I think @Despos recommended it as a possible formal blazer fabric so I went with it.Thank you.

That book is finished, but Fox’s Heritage Flannels get close, albeit without the complex color ways.The London Lounge used to have a book with Fox. I was going to use one of their brown glen plaids for a double-breasted suit about eight or nine years ago. It's a walnut color with a faint chestnut-colored overcheck. I don't know if they still have that book -- it's not online -- but might be worth checking out.
Unfortunately don't have any experience with any of the Japanese tailors, so I can't really comment in a meaningful way. I like what I've seen online from Ciccio, however. If I was getting a business suit, I think I would opt for something slightly more conservative than what Ueki himself wears. But he seems skilled at what he does.
If it's a summer weight/weave, perhaps Sunny Season?anyone have an idea what VBC book this Model 3 jacket cloth might be out of, or possibly even a reference number? It says 250g and 100% wool, but I don't see it in any of the standard books online (revenge, perennial, etc.)
I dont know how big you are, but its unlikely that 3 meters, especially in a plaid, would be enough cloth for a double breasted suit. Make sure you check with your tailor before pulling the trigger.Thinking about pulling a trigger on this cloth. It is a vintage Holland & Sherry circa 1980s. 60% Summer Kid Mohair and 40%Worsted Cashmere & Vicuna which costs around $700 for 3 meters. I'm thinking double breasted suit should do the trick with this. What's your opinion?
