W/r/t the LL cloth issue, I will say that some of the cloths I've seen from them are stunning and really are unlike most of the other cloth available on the market. I'm not sure I'd want to pay a large added premium for the stuff and I struggle there a bit, but it's tempting. It's also worth noting that if you purchase LL cloth and get it made up by Steed via their bespoke service, you get roughly 20% off their bespoke prices. If you like the house style at Steed and are willing to pay for bespoke, this could be an interesting way to go about it. I'd think that would take some of the sting out of LL pricing.
