That's great. If you change your mind, send it to me.
Such a fabric would make a fantastic suit. In addition to wearing it as a suit (tattersail shirts, pheasant ties; roll necks or turtle necks, etc) The top can be worn as a sports coat. The trousers work very well under quilted jackets. Being cashmere, they are luxuriously cosy on winter days. But not suitable for brush. -
^^ I like the fabric. It's reasonably bold. In general I would not get anything cashmere made up as a suit (trouser durability becomes a major issue in a lot of cases) so doing it as an odd jacket makes sense to me.
Can somebody confirm is this is a cavalry twill? It's 100% wool, heavy weight. From a pair of Zegna trousers.
I'd like to get a pair made up in a similar fabric. Can anyone suggest a good book to look at?
That does not look like cavalry twill to me. I have a bunch of Zegna calvary twill fabric left over, made these pants with it (third one down). Its about 17-18oz, I can sell you a pants length or so if you like (or sell you the pants ):
Ed, is this the rust or burgundy madder?
what do we think of this, does it look orphaned?
Not sure if this is whipcord or cavalry twill. From the H&S Dakota book. I think this is 14 1/2 oz. Was thinking about getting a pair of pants made in this.
Trini, the burgandy
Ralphie, yes but I think the whole outfit is rather comical
Mr. Pink, take a look at the back of the H&S Force 10 book
I've never seen that book. I'll have to ask for it. What are the weights like?
Is this the one? Sort of a caramel tan? Do you have any other cav twill colors?
Pink, that is whipcord.
