    How would this windowpane work as an odd jacket? 8.5 oz super 120s

    I'd say it looks more like jacketing than suiting. I'd do it. Peak lapel, even.

    ^^ I agree, it would look nice as a sport coat with hip patch pockets. Not sure how durable that fabric is though.

    Definitely, especially with patch pockets. I like it!

    Hi Guys - does anyone have a photograph of the H.E. Box 32oz cavalry twill? I believe it's #9002. Thanks!

    I know I have a swatch somewhere. Finding it, though .... may be a challenge.

    Slewfoot...just send a buzz to HE Box...they sent me out a sample of this exact cloth a few years ago

    I thought it was Melton wool...but instead was Cavalry Twill (I was looking for a warm cloth for a bespoke Navy Peacoat)

    I found this Cavalry twill cloth to be too rough for what I desired...and too dark
