    Thanks buddy! I still have another that I got from you I haven't make up. It's a great cloth.


    WW Chan's ladies section. The details are amazing.

    LL just announced that they have the 60 meters required for production! At 450 GBP/meter x 3.5 meters ~ $2500 USD just for material. :eek:

    Hard to justify the cost but I'm not sure if it'll ever be made again. . .

    Ditto. I could never ever be able to come close to affording that. Their regular fabrics are already expensive enough at 120GBP/m.

    120 GBP? Did they just go up from 100 GBP? That's what I recall from the last round.
