Ha ha, wow, that is surely medical treatment. Did you consult a qualified practitioner? Did you have to walk about the house and in public without your buttons on for a few weeks to see how it felt before they gave you the go ahead?
Luckily all procedures went smoothly and I'm on the road to recovery! :^)
Hope all is well at your end!
To the 50 or so guys who sent me a message about the cloth order discount, just wanted to quickly mention that I'm off overseas till the 12th of Dec, and will reply to all messages then. One of the mills has gotten back to me about availability and everything that you guys have asked for is in stock; still waiting for the other mill to get back to me.
Guys, need some help here. Planning to make a few sports jackets for next year and have some Carlo Barbera's (not the ones for Lesser). I'm leaning towards the brown/blue checks and also the green with red overchecks (second one from the bottom in the first pic). Any thoughts on this?
Best Donegal Tweed for a Blazer suit would be...
I'm looking for something Navy, not overly concerned about softness.
I like P&H Thornproof.
I would think Thornproof for suiting, but I'd recommend reaching out to Molloy and Sons and inquire if they recommend any of their donegals for suiting.
Also, Kevin & Howlin, a retailer in Ireland, freely sends out swatches. Have you looked at W Bill's books. I'm sure Ercoles has it.
I just got back a blue coat from my tailor made from Thornproof. I liked it more than the similar offering from W. Bill, which seems to have become a bit of a forum darling.
The nicest looking donegals that I've seen (though not in person) are from Scabal, oddly enough.
