    Eustice, is there a selvedge on the Barbera cloth? I would like to see it if it has one.

    Chris - pics as requested. The selvedge actually says Drapers, but the TT guys assured me the mill was Carlo Barbera.

    I'm concerned that it may deteriorate quickly given that its 100% cashmere. Will wear this one sparingly.

    Thank you Eustice. Looks to be a worsted spun cashmere, should hold up well. No worries.

    Out of curiosity, for what type of occasion can you this for?

    He can use it to dress like a 1970's pimp on Halloween.

    Some new shirtings for the fall / winter.

    Wool / cotton blend to the left, and a brushed cotton on the right. Both from Acorn.

    I dig that acron on the right. I recall seeing it before and really liking it. May have to grab it at some point.

    A few very nice things came in the mail in recent weeks...they were partially funded, until I bought my cigar shell LWBs...now I feel comfortable posting them here.

    E-

    I have the Acorn brushed cotton and it makes up beautifully.

    Great choice!

    My two only pieces - both sourced from the Quality Seller so I can't ask for a better cosign than that:

    Navy worsted with a narrow herringbone:

    This will be made up as a single-breasted, 3r2 with ticket and flapped pocket. Depending on the excess material, I'll either get a second pair of pants or a waistcoat (no lapels).


    Took the plunge this weekend and placed an order for my first bespoke suit (I've had MTM done in the past) in the fabric above. It was surreal and scary.

    I didn't end up getting the ticket pocket or the waistcoat though.

    Local MBT whom I've been going to for all my alterations.

    I figure by now, he knows how I like things to fit.
