    Here is the H&S Force 10 stuff. Its calvary twills in 11 and 13 oz weights along with some hopsacks and gabardines. The 13oz calvary twills make up sick pants:

    This is the Zegna calvary twill that I have spare of, its about 17-18oz, they don't make this anymore. Its great stuff. Ignore my 6 years old's luigi.

    For those looking for a bold summer jacket, H&S just came out with a summer weight 100% merino wool with "AquArret", its stain/water/static resistant. Its a dry finish and drapes nicely:

    Had a fitting for a pair of trousers in this cloth (the mid grey on the right) the other day. Really good stuff.

    Which one did you get @mafoofan. I have the original incarnation of 604 and tried to get 600 but it had already run out and then the company was done.

    I don't think the new ones have number codes. Here's the one I ordered (19/20 ounces):

    600 and 604 are old patterns from the days when they didn't use numbers. They have no names on the site. The others have no numbers. I think you chose one of the ighter weight ones, not the heavier ones. The Reay pattern is in the Kildary range and is 500 not 700 gram. That is still substantial, but 19/20oz

    i *think* it's Zegna but I could be (most likely) very wrong.

    I got it from Ed so he might be able to shed some more light as to its origin.

    It would great to see a picture if the cloth. Not enough emphasis is placed on learning from mistakes and it would be great to see what someone found didn't work out. I have one that I posted on LL way back. If it hasn't been given away, I will post it.
