    Drapers has something similar to the first pic. I'd call the cloth oatmeal. It's in this pic, second from left:

    L to R: Drapers khaki cavalry twill, Drapers oatmeal flannel, Drapers light gray flannel, Minnis light gray flannel.

    Don't know the Dugdale, but for really hot weather, Minnis 8/9 oz is better than Smiths, which comes in 10 or 11.5 iirc.

    The Smiths 3-ply is pretty light--- more so than the 4-ply that got Finmeresco's name out there. And it drapes beautifully.

    The Drapers cavalry looks excellent. How heavy is it?

    Thanks guys. I got the Drapers cavalry twill from Ambrosi a few years ago. It's a great fabric. I don't know its weight, but I'd say it's relatively lightweight, something like 12 oz.

    The unfunded liability above just got funded. Will be laying my hands on it this weekend. In the meantime some pictures from my tailor.

    Wow!

    Makes me wonder what he did with my piece... I guess I'll have to wait to see.

    He didn't send any photo's of your prova unfortunately. It is ready though and you can check it out Saturday afternoon. On the Dutch board I uploaded some more pictures of provas and finished stuff he will take with him this weekend (and I sent you a pm there).

    IIRC, Breanish is distributed by Jodek International, Beverly Hills, CA. in the US

    Yup, and they charge a boatload for it. Surprised Jodek is still in business after they lost the big Harrisons / Lessers account. They seem to carry much smaller labels now.
