    Isles Textiles (expensive), Tip Top (doubtful), or try ordering directly from Huddersfield.

    I'm not particularly wild about most of these designs, but they did for Lesser, which should be good enough for everyone.

    Most of them are nice enough for me, how heavy are they? Also where I can get these funky sample books?

    What's the general opinion of Dormeuil? I tracked down somebody in DC that has pretty much all their current books, and am going to take a look on Monday. It seems like they don't get talked about as much as other names here.

    Expensive. Tend toward luxe-style fabrics. Quality is good, so if you see something you like, you can be confident in buying. I have a suit from their navy Sportex Hopsack

    Just by the fact that this gentleman knows sportex, you know he is old-school

    So I'll be getting an overcoat made for next Winter and am trying to collect fabric samples. I hope to get an HE Box 32oz cavalry twill sent my way soon and was also wondering about heavyweight tweed fabrics in herringbone. I'm thinking Navy Blue, but would also be open to seeing some Dark Brown and Dark Gray.

    Any suggestions?

    Recently, yes - that's what got me interested in them and looking at their site I got interested in other fabrics too. They seem to have more exotic blends, as mentioned.

    In any case, I will report back on Monday, maybe with some pics if I am allowed.
