I remember the Lesser 9.5/10 having the weaves/patterns I mentioned. Am I wrong?
You might be right, but based on my fuzzy memory of looking through the book a few years ago, I recall mostly solid plain weaves with a few stripes and nailheads. Great fabric though, I have a couple suits that have held up beautifully with regular wear over 4-5 years.
I only have two nailheads from the book, so I could be wrong. It is a great fabric. I wish they would bring it back.
Would anyone know in which book I could find a similar shade of doeskin cashmere?
Regarding the Marling & Evans twills, I just received some samples. They're 13 oz "undyed pure British wool." The colors seem to come from various naturally colored sheep, including Shetlands. Still not sure how they standardize the colors from that explanation.
Nice quality. Meant for jacketing I believe.
At about $30/meter that I was quoted, these are quite cheap.
Think I'm going to pick up 5 meters of this stuff... not sure which colors to pick, they're all nice
Top left may seem like the obvious choice but top right is very interesting.
@mrpink do you normally email Harrison's to ask for swatches, or call?
I like the height of that shirt collar but I'm wondering how comfortable is it? is it covering your adam's apple or sitting just below it?
email or the website contact form
Very nice jacket.
Anyone have any advice on where to look for brown pinstripe suiting? There's one in the P&B Universal book (15 oz.) but I want to compare it to other samples.
I've looked in just about all of the Lesser and Harrison books, and the Minnis books.
Stripe needs to be white. Fabric needs to be worsted (I know Minnis has a brown chalk stripe flannel.)
I believe the various Dugdale books have a number of brown stripes.
Please do. Looking forward to this.
Thinking about getting the Minnis 520 fresco for an my odd navy jacket, but the swatch looks rather blue with a slight grey tint. Does it come out darker and less grey when made up?
Also, what is the difference between the fresco 1 and fresco 2 collection? (looks the same to me)
