    Any way to get Fox Swatches other than the website? Don't want to pay 38 pounds just for shipping 8 swatches to the US.

    I didn't have to pay near that much for shipping but things may have changed. What do you need? If you're in the US I'll send you what I have.

    Not to derail my question about the Cary Grant/Charade tweed, but what do you all think of a muted green tweed SC?

    This one. Tones are richer and more complex.

    Just break it up into separate orders. Total shipping will be much less.

    Thought this tidbit might interest some in this thread.

    Is it possible that Scabal is bringing back the discontinued Shetland tweeds? Particularly the 800374 below

    According to the caption in this video, Scabal will have Shetland in the 2013/2014 winter collection. Anyone know anything about this?

    Thanks for the responses about the fox swatches, if anyone has the 'midnight Birdseye jacketing', 'POW jacketing', or the 'classic navy chalk stripe flannel' please let me know .
