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!
May not be the best example but you can get the idea from Suit Supply.

If the windowpane is too bold, for my taste it will be too heavy as a suit however I can see that will work as an odd jacket with charcoal, dark or medium gray trousers.
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.
I hear you and no worries either way. Thanks!
Is this from Drapers?
^ Unfortunately, I have no idea!
Drapers has a similiar one and its a super 110's
I have it. Will post a pic this evening.
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
Thanks Michael! I hope to have a swatch coming my way.
