    I asked the Reid rep to focus on cost accounting for 1a since it seems to take a long time for them to figure things out.

    Despos expressed interest in 1a and he is one of our key order placers.

    Also, most seem to like the larger scale. I can get down with that. Maybe go smaller scale if there's enough interest after we fill up the large scale order.

    I'm thinking the smaller scale fabric will be priced in the same ballpark.

    If you are on the list below and are interested in FABRIC 1a for $33.50 per meter + shipping from the UK, please confirm you interest in the thread

    As a reminder, 1a is the larger scale pictured in swatch image, 450 grams (15.9 oz)

    Also, remember that it's for a BARLEYCORN ONLY fabric. They are making it without the herringbone in the swatch.

    147% confirmed to the goal for the 1a fabric. (88.03 out of 60 meter minimum)

    http://www.joelandsonfabrics.com has some random bits, but I don't think there's anywhere you can buy their whole line direct as a consumer.

    @jrd617 I'm in for 15 meters if the cloth can be sent directly from the UK to France.

    Thanks Boulito, you just put this order over the 60 meter threshold. :slayer:

    I would hope that they can ship to France. They're mailing it to the US already, so France should be cheaper right?

    Order is now 61 77 meters!!! If other people want in, now's the time to speak up. Fast tracking individual payments for this weekend/early next week. Contact email at Reid and Taylor to be posted soon.

    What fabric books do you guys use for odd trousers? I want to use Dugdale Bros. English Classics & Town Classics hopsack, twill, and sharkskin.
