    That fabric is amazing. I'm in for 1933 or 1934.

    I'd probably be in for 2.5 for any of those but 1935. Are the colors more accurate in the group or close-up shots?

    I would say more accurate in the close-up shots. I took photos instead of scans in natural light. Not in direct sunlight. I can try to get some in direct sunlight if you guys want.

    ^ I'd be interested in seeing direct sunlight shots, since I'm not familiar with how hemp-blend fabric interacts with light.

    1933 interests me the most, but I could maybe be convinced into 1937 or 1938. I'd want 3.5 meters.

    I created a sales thread for the Delfino Hemp/Wool. Will help keep the clutter down in this thread. If interested parties would please take a look and post there, would be helpful. Thank you.

    Thank you all for sharing the detailed insights.
    Nice :)
    I agree mimo. I agree big time.

    Dear ETKL - With your rapid fire outbursts and number of posts it did 2 things for the worse:
    - Points out some reason why you are on a super DEFENSE parade for them
    - What was a small little mention that was forgotten, has now been fueled and made memorable by your arguing.

    Not mad at all. Just taking Manton's logic to the next (realistic) level.



    It's all true!



    As long as you're going commando you could probably handle up to 42oz...43oz would be silly though.

    Hello,

    Anyone know where one can source linen or linen cotton blends appropriate for trousers? I am specifically looking for herringbones, POW, windowpane etc. Basically, non-solid patterns.

    TIA

    1933 interests me most as well. Looks like a great pattern for a summer jacket and the weave is really interesting.

    I wonder if folks in this thread have experience with hemp/wool blends? I'm very interested in the group buy, but have no idea what to expect from the cloth. I've read hemp is durable as a fabric, but not much beyond that in terms of drape, breathability, etc. Cheers.

    right here, for now
    the only ones i'm that familiar with are samuelsohn. the linen & blends for their spring / summer SC collection are pretty decent i think
    getting your hands on their linen fabric alone to have your own made will be damn near impossible from my experience

    Try Luxire. They have an excellent collection of linen. I would imagine they would be willing to sell you fabric too, not sure though.
