    Wait. Scratch that. I thought this was the tweed thread for a second. If suiting, I would think this one below should be nice from Dugdale Royal Classics.

    How formal do you want it to be? For classic suitings, I second Slewfoot's Dugdale advice. For jacketing or informal suiting, I like the Hardy Worsted Alsport.

    Sorry - should have specified. Biz-naz suiting.

    This is what I have in mind, though mine will probably lack the dramatic lighting.

    I have a suit from that. Not as smooth and hard as a similar from Smith, Lesser or Scabal, I would say.

    No I like it a lot actually. In hindsight, the shade darker would have been more CBD and versatile but the cloth is great. It's bullet proof

    edit: this is how mine looks

    A little late to the party with this, but here's my version of Slewfoot's brown Fresco:

    What about recs for herringbone cashmere in a dark, rich, navy? Would be for a SC, not a suit.

    Is there any way to get the grey Agnelli or has that ship sailed?

    I think it's pulling out of the pier, but you may be able to have them thrown you a length. I'd reach out to Alden and Lovat to inquire.

    I bought some for a pair of pants, don't know how much they have left though. Worth contacting Lovat mill to check with them.

    I got a navy herringbone from Harrison's moonbeam bunch, while not cashmere, it is soft and nice. I haven't made it up yet but I think it will make a nice SC.

    I'm not really sure. Best way to find out is to email Michael Alden at LL. [email protected]
