Oh yeah, 2.5m
If we go small scale, I'd increase my buy to 3.5m (from 2.5)
@jrd617: I am still on the fence, mainly due to awaiting price but also due to needing to see a swatch, but I'd be interested in 2.5m of option 2a, I think.
Id be in on option
2a) Smaller scale ala Connery's jacket, 450 grams (15.9 oz)
I'm going to make a suit so 4 meters for me
I am in for 2m on the fawn, donkey, tan, mottled tan (or whatever we end up calling it) for odd trousers.
Updated list for the flannel:
Figure out what the actual color will be and I might be in for a little.
On Goldfinger tweed:
Prefer 1 (b). Second choice is 1 (a).
I would likely be in for 2.5m. I'm leaning towards the larger scale at 450g, but would you be willing to take a picture of the swatch with a ruler next to it?
I have this fabric for sale for those interested. PM.
About 5'11" and between 160 -170 lbs. Waist is about 32
Unfortunately I'm between tailors at the moment so hoping some of you here can help me out in terms of how much fabric I'd need for a pair of pants.
1.5m should be enough.
not to disrupt the tweedy flow, but just in case anyone was following, I was able to get huddersfield cloth to send me a couple of swatches of the 'cool new wool' stuff and then have a couple of suit lengths shipped to my tailor in HK, and it's definitely the Bateman Ogden Panache. Nice stuff, I'm having the HC1124 and HC1126 (huddersfield's numbers) made up. Definitely a bargain at the price. I got a couple of swatches of the Minnis Fresco to compare, and they seem pretty similar at least as swatches. Similar weights and openness of weave, similar hand (for me anyway). I also got some swatches of the Minnis QX stuff, kinda interesting...definitely not a tropical/summer cloth even though it's an 8.5-9.5oz plain weave, but might be a nice year-round/spring type cloth.
May I know, how much did you pay for your "cool new wool"?
