    @TRINI

    Nice, I'm about to place an order with them for the chocolate shetland. Need to figure out how to do a proper wire transfer via my bank's site. They don't take credit cards unfortunately

    Drat. I'm gonna get the chocolate Shetland as well (many thanks to you).

    I'm thinking a 3 patch SB suit - you?

    I like those colours a plain barleycorn would be great as a SC.

    We'd need to get a quorum of about 20-25 people (60 meters) to order it from Reid

    Also might scale it slightly down to achieve the look from Goldfinger pictured below



    I will tentatively call the cloth from this run the "Goldfinger tweed"

    Waiting for a price quote. Expecting something in line with Harrisons.

    (Not profiting off this in any way)


    So far:
    1. jrd617 in for 2.5 meters
    2. @jerrybrowne in for 2.5 meters
    3. @bertie in for 2.5 meters
    4. @virchow in for 2.5 meters
    5. @tchoy in for 2.5 meters
    6. @fassbinder in for 2.5 meters
    7. @C&A in for 2.5 meters
    8. @chobochobo in for 3.89 meters
    9. @Despos - possibly in for several meters


    who else?

    jrd617, the link doesn't work (for me at least).

    you're going to do this in an all over barleycorn w/o the herringbone? what's the approximate price per meter going to be?

    You guys need to find a project for summer weight fabrics. You know, something that will not cook me like a pot roast.
