Vigogna means vicuna in Italian
In Italy 'vigogna' also means a flannel with a mélange colouring:

Not too yellow-- just looks like a white that was allowed to age correctly in the wardrobe.

I believe that cigar shops require ownership of such a garment before they will sell to you.

Yeah I agree with The Chai. The Spence Bryson oyster in the tropical range seems close enough.

Why not ask Mark directly?

Does anyone have a suggestion for where to source a cream/ ecru linen cloth with a slightly yellow/ warm tint? I'm looking for something such as the photos below.

Looked at W. Bill and none of the fabrics are quite right

Dugdale, too, has something similar but let's be honest all these come from the same sources anyway. I've seen cream linens in the caccioppoli showroom as well. Been contemplating a cream linen myself, still debating between sb and db.

I did. He said he doesn't remember, but thinks it might be W. Bill. I also asked Vox and he said his is from W. Bill, but the cloth is no longer in stock.

Any ideas on the cloth? I‘m thinking it looks like silk, but I could be way off.

Or linen that hasn't worn out yet.

Hello all. I'm looking for something rather particular (that I swear I've seen before but can't find again). I'm looking for a navy (dark navy) glen check cloth that's really subtle. Something that registers as a solid until you look really closely at it. Hopefully in wool/linen or wool/linen/silk.
