    Minnis Fresco and flannel for my more formal odd trousers. I've been pretty happy with Dugdale for moleskins (Brisbane Moss is pretty decent too for corduroy). Holland and Sherry makes some very nice linen fabric. I only have a suit from Holland and Sherry but like it enough that I am probably going to get some odd trousers made up from it too.

    I'm putting an order through them on the behalf of some members. Their sale terms feel like they're changing all the time. At least over the last year or two that I've been ordering from them. FWIW, right now, you can order RC numbered items, but if your order totals 30 yards or more, there's a discount. The order I'm putting in is about $6.50/ yard, landed. Without the bulk order, I was quoted about $9.50/ yard, landed.

    Where are these made? Not that it matters. Sorry, just trying to get up to speed here.

    @jrd617 I'm not sure about the large scale--I'm surprised as I thought there was more support for the smaller scale. What scale was the LL version that @slewfoot had made up?
    Btw, how much is shipping to the US?
    I guess I can always resell it if I don't like the scale....

    I would like to place 3 seperate lengths (2.5m, 2.5m and 1.75m), ship to one location.

    I would like to make this as un-complicated as possible for Reid. They say they don't usually cut it into separate orders for consumers like us.

    Can you live with 6.75 meters and have you tailor cut it? Frankly, I'd rather not make that request of them. They are already doing us a huge favor.

    Any tips to keeping/storing cloth that won't be used for a while?

    I had seen the swatch samples of Town Classic, very good indeed, i believe they will well made up and can last for very long time. GBP29.19 per meter (as stated in their website) It is a steal.
