    i know that i might take some heat for this, about using the "search button".

    however, where do you get your fabric? online?
    I can't find anywhere local that has decent fabric.

    I am looking for a decent solid navy linen. enough for a blazer.

    There's a beautiful green I saw that T4 says is probably from Solbati. Do you know a good source?

    I don't think I'd do peak lapels on anything single-breasted, except a tux or dark charcoal/oxford gray suit.

    My John DeBoise Bespoke ( from the green tweed I posted up thread a while back ) for Grammaton Cleric.

    That is a very smart suit, TTO. Well done.

    Interesting to see that the older DeBoise also cuts peak lapels in a softer shape very similar to A&S.

    Impressive, TTO. Thanks for posting.

    Looks like DeBoise is a very good value.

    I'm impressed - and envious - that you can wear a herringbone tweed suit mid September... And double-breasted with that.

    Very nice suit

    Agreed, that is a beautiful suit, and the high rise looks great.

    Apologies if this has been discussed, but I can't find it via search. Anyone have experience with Taylor and Lodge Lumb's Golden Bale Super 200s? I'm concerned about how well it will hold up to very moderate use. Thinking of having a suit made up.

    TIA
