I see there is a line of VBC material called "Supersonic" which appears to be wrinkle resistance/stain resistant. I am primarily looking for sports coats for planes, trains, business use etc. I may also order a suit or two. What fabric lines would be best to look at from VBC - or is Supersonic the line to focus on ?

Just to followup on this post in case anyone looks here in the future.

Here is a video with a section on the supersonic line. In this book, near there are specific set of fabrics for blazers.

There is also this link on the supersonic fabrics.

Best wishes.

Additional followup .... When considering MTM suits and sport coats I have found a number of places that say they carry fabrics from "VBC" or "Drago" or "XYZ". However 90% of the time this means they carry a very limited selection from these fabric mills and NOT access to the full line. That kind of full selection (full line of books) appears to be reserved for bespoke.

VBC/Drapers Ascot bunch has 2, 4, and 6-ply high twist wools. I have some grey trousers in the 4-ply and it's terrific for traveling. Very wrinkle resistant, very breathable. I know the Armoury guys recommend it very strongly.

Thank you. I understand these are more commonly available and the ones most often promoted as Traveler blends. I will take a look. Right now I am considering Hall Madden in Chicago which offers both MTM and Bespoke. Bespoke is kind of out of my price range, but that may change in the next year. Thanks again.
