+1 especially since Despos may be a big chunk of our quota.
Prefer 1b but also fine with 1a.

p.s. nice example of barleycorn jacket on Caccioppoli's tumblr:
^Too mustard. That is a rather harsh looking yellow shade. Nice scale however
I asked Jodek last week if they had any barleycorn tweed, but they said none in stock. They carry caccipoli in the US
I have a bit of a thing for old English cloth - I was sorting out this afternoon and thought I'd share photos of a few bolts. I suspect I have more than I could ever get made up into suits (a lot more than is shown here), but as the saying goes "they don't make it like they used to":
And the last photo is a length of Holland and Holland silk, which I'm keeping until I find a project for it:
great stuff, love to see more photos of this type of stuff. one day i will get around to photographing my stock.
I suspect this is just great marketing for those susceptible to romantic notions about clothes. I mean, yes, it is not made in the same way anymore. But I'm suspicious of any intrinsic/objective superiority.

That's some really cool Holland & Holland silk, Simon. I'm not really one for wacky linings, but I kind of like the idea of a tweed jacket lined in that.
