    I didn't realize Lesser still had this type of cloth in their books. Is it from the lambswool book or from something older?

    Have you had success ordering from Lesser directly? When I emailed David recently he referred me to Harrisons and Jodek.

    Just some close-outs I stumbled upon.

    Have you just verbalized me? I'm honoured.

    If you were really honored, you'd drop the fucking "u". [​IMG]

    Not sure, like I said, just a bunch of close-outs I literally stumbled upon.

    Thanks - any idea which book?

    I don't have easy access to Scabal fabrics so any more details would be really helpful.

    Cheers.

    Sorry, I'm unsure on the book. I have seen a very similar fabric at Beckenstein's and was informed it was Scabal. Perhaps you could email this pic to them?

    You can browse the Scabal fabrics catalogue on-line (although they will not sell to private individuals), just register on their web site.

    Also: Hardy/Minnis has a number of nice gun club checks

    Here's my most recent liability: London Lounge blue donegal herringbone 20oz tweed. Soft and spongy and toasty. Can't wait for next Fall! [​IMG]
