    Mills sell to the trade. Rarely to individuals.
    there are some distributors that might sell directly.
    for shirting, I know, acorn is the only distributor who has swatches online.

    Any recommendations for good lining sources? I don't need fancy ones, just plain ones with variety of colors. Also, how many meters does one need for a jacket?

    I'd recommend going all Ermazine. I think Harrison's sells them direct. I'm not sure on exact lengths, but I think it's good to have close to the amount that the suit is. For example, if you need 2.5 meters for a sportcoat probably ideal to have 1.5 meters of lining. I could be wrong though.

    Harrisons has a lining book thats has ermazine though they also have cupro, which I prefer.
