Sad, but true.
Anyone have a suggestion where I can find a large-scale glen plaid sportcoating like the one below?
Thanks. That was a quick ninja edit. I can understand your reason for it.
Ed - could you please elaborate? Do you still recommend to "be cautious" or should we simply stay away and put this thing to bed?
This may work if you are after a heavier weight cloth.
Thats what I was going to recommend. I saw it last week and was tempted. This one is in lambswool which I liked even better. That whole book is pretty neat.
Ordered suits in 13 oz H. Lesser and 12 oz Smiths Botany. Once I have them, happy to make a comparison to anyone interested.
We have a book here that Formosa gave us called "Iris Blossom" that has hopsacks (less coarse than that RLPL though) and herringbone in 100% linen (280 g) in various colors. The mill is Bellora
I too am interested in a good linen herringbone.
And glen check patterns as well.
Magee is the best source for "linen tweed," but good luck getting swatches.
Here is a detail of the Fox cloth for you.
Thanks - I am familiar w/ the Fox offering. The pattern in the pictured cloth is, however, meaningfully larger to my eye.
EDIT: Thanks,. David - appreciate the pic. Just looking form something even larger.
^^There was the LL Agnelli PoW run, which would work nice as a sport jacketing. We might still be able to pull the Breanish special run and do a large scale glen plaid.
From what I read I would suggest to stay away as it does not seem like they are a "going concern" but I do not have any knowledge of the intricacies of the situation and as you know, there may be one entity that is closing/liquidating and another entity that is continuing with the business. I would at least ask to have their current legal situation explained before placing any orders.
Could just do it and Marling & Evans instead of Reid.
I remember that Breanish. That would be perfect
^^We can still make it, just need to work out pricing with Breanish.
Dopey, are you reading?
