Has the famous LP Cotton Time book been discontinued? Two tailors have told me it is unavailable (but they’re both in France).

Recently Simon Crompton released a cashmere plaid reminiscent of RL and it got me thinking I would like a very tonal and subtle plaid. His was just a bit too bright/bold for me, but are there any other books out there that are similar?

For reference, I really like this one below, not the styling, but the cloth on the coat which is an older RLPL:

Dunno if this counts as plaid, but Fox has a similar cloth in a fainter check

Seems like LP or Zegna would have something like that. I also think H&S might have a couple similar patterns.

If I want to get a tweed suit made up, what properties of the cloth should I be looking for? I know most tweeds can bag easily if made into trousers, but are there some indicators I should look for that a certain cloth might be suitable for it? I've looked at some faux tweeds and while I like the way they look, I feel like I want something heavier. I had a jacket made in a 11oz Holland and Sherry herringbone tweed and while I love the way it looks, I wish it hung a little heavier.

Curious what other people thought of the SC cloth ... I was on the fence about it
