    Don't do a jacket with these ones but only suit... I have 0569 as a suit and it's really nice. It's really not for a jacket

    Quick iPhone shot - I think it demonstrates the "suityness" of the cloth quite well....

    That's splendid. Thank you - I think you just made HFW a sale!

    Nope; investigating Harrison's "Frontier" too; waiting for prices.

    Thanks for the information I will use the information moving forward. May I ask how often you used these suits? I don't plan on working it into a daily rotation. I mostly wear sports coats. Also, how hot does 14oz wear, I tend to run hot?

    I have myself one Harrisons Froniter navy windowpane suit. You can use it as reference. But I also feel fine with the jacket as odd jacket, pairing with grey worsted pants as semi-business attire.

    Stephen, nice suit and nice pattern matching.
    How do you find frontier in respect of wrinkle resistance, say after a whole day wearing? And, compared with other wool fabrics of the same price range?

    Thats a really nice suit.

    An alternative for a similarly priced cloth as the Frontier is the Harrisons Conquest; I have one one light brown and makes a pretty nice suit =)

    New black tie 3pc rig, ready for the dinners during Christmas and New year. [​IMG] Cloth by vintage dormeuil Tonik 15-16oz. The cloth is a beast because it does not crease at all! p.s. No roping on sleeve head this time, just normal concave shoulder. The shoulder has been extend by 1/4" for this garment.

    Hi terrorsquad,

    Thanks for your appreciation.

    You are right, Conquest is similar to Frontier but it has been withdrawn or going to be withdrawn shortly. [​IMG]

    Hi Aton,

    Frontier has good wrinkle resistance. It may not has as good resistance as Fresco, which has high twist yarn but Frontier can still keep its shape after whole day wearing and the wrinkles will disappear soon after being hanged for a while
