Do you think it is worth the $$$?
Wow, that's pretty heavy stuff.
New Yorkers can handle it.....at least for a few months out of the year.
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.
Has anyone purchased from or heard of http://www.sultansfinefabrics.com/ ?
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.
They are available from several merchants.
could be a Canadian version of Tip top. I sent a note to a Canadian friend to get the scoop
Full lining (top & bottom): 2m
½ lining: 1.25m
Trouser lining: 1 m
Sleeve lining: 0.75 m
Just put up a pic on my tumblr (sorry for , i'm on my phone and it's easier to post pics on tumblr directly from phone)
