Anyone know of a Barathea that is closer to navy than black? I had thought it might make a good lounge suit for the evening.

Abraham moon and bateman ogden both have baratheas closer to navy than black. I highly recomend the one from moon. Nice color and drape

for anyone looking for any cloth that they can't get their hands on, I can order directly from pretty much every merchant or mill with fair prices. DM me if you look for anything particular.
what country are you located in?

@camez_ is a great guy and superb to deal with- I have ordered several times from him already. Quick communication, fair prices (as mentioned) and fast shipping!

Here's a navy escorial barathea.

I have a shawl DJ from the black version of that and it is really nice. This 'navy', however is more of a midnight. Blacker than black, etc. Might still have value for a regular suit, but I was hoping to find something a little different.
