    If no one asked Mark at The Armoury I can do so. I'm curious to see a swatch of the fabric.

    I am in for the goldfinger tweed. 4 meters please.

    Edit: Is the consensus on this that it will be no good for a suit?

    This sort of pattern is relatively popular in s/s jacketing books. There is a quite similar pattern in Bateman Ogden's jacketing book, which is sold as Aimbry by Huddersfield Cloth.

    Riviera was a great book indeed. I have two jackets out of it, and two further lengths to be made up. I would've gotten nearly the entire book if they hadn't discontinued it. Someone made a comment, a few pages ago, about how difficult it is to find decent light-weight jacketings that aren't very explicitly summery. Personally, I've been looking for quite a while for an interesting blue-but-not-blazer pattern for a travel sports coat. The Riviera had a gun club check that was ideal, but it was sold out before I could get a length. I'll try and dig up a picture of it, if anyone else would be interested in a remake. There just aren't enough nice citified odd jacketings out there...

    Here are a few others from the same book.
    Personally, I'm no huge fan of things that look like tweed being made in a summer finish/weight.

    Found two fabrics that look similar from Huddersfield Cloth's super 100s' jacketing book.

    Oops. Haven't been checking this thread.

    @jrd617, I'm out for the larger scale, still in for smaller scale if it happens.

    And +1 for the Liverano gun club check

    This is the blue Riviera gun club I'm still lusting after, if anyone still has a length or knows another book with a similar design.

    That' was a nice cloth I remember gotten a sample of it and had intention of making it up but sadly they pull the plug on the Riviera book.

    The larger of the two is in the works. It's Holland and Sherry's 2014 ascot book. Both are 9oz

    Some more cloth I bought. I'm a really big fan of red-and-blue ginghams. The camo cloth will also be turned into shirts. Depending on the perceived gag factor from your replies, I may even get one with a contrast collar. :D
