    Anyone know who makes this or a similar medium/narrow chalk stripe flannel? Minnis 0311?

    Also, is there a similar cloth in navy ?

    Thanks

    Thanks A - what's the number of the navy narrow chalk? Am I blind - I can't see it on the hfwltd website... [​IMG]

    Your mid-grey is the 0311 ?

    Fox Flannel also makes a great one in Navy. Not sure about gray, but I'm guessing they have that too.

    Thanks David - does Patrick usually travel with the Fox books?

    On Andrew's picture here, 0311 to 0314 seem to have a very faint stripe and different from NOBD's pic....

    Patrick doesn't stock Fox at this point, but I was going to put him in touch with my contact there. Next month I'm planning on showing him my Fox swatch books they sent me when he's in NYC.

    Some of those Minnis fabrics look yummy. I'm a big fan of the two blue chalk stripes plus 308 in the first pic.

    A quick question regarding H&S Crispaire. I am getting a suit made in navy Crispaire and want to get an unlined (quarter lined if that is the correct term) back. How opaque is the cloth when worn ? I will be wearing mainly white / light blue shirts and should I concerned about them being visible through the cloth from close. If so, what color of lining is recommended for the quarter back which will be lined.

    Thanks for your help


    I have a jacket in the Crispaire wool & mohair blend. It's not so porous that a light colored shirt is a problem. I did go with self-colored for the half lining.

    I'm excited now... Do you happen to have a snap of 314? It looks so muted on the pictures above, I'm wondering how subtle the stripe is.

    No worsted flannels in the Minnis book, unless it's changed recently.

    Keep in mind also that in the photos above, that's the reverse side in every case. The patterns/stripes are a lot more vivid on the "front". Not disparaging AndrewRogers, just sayin'
