What Does "Price per Color" Mean for Shirtings?

I just received a price list from a mill, and it lists the price on a "per color" basis. For example:

140s - two ply fabric: Price (per color) / metre: 29.17 euro.

So does this mean if I order a stripe (i.e. 2 colors) the price doubles to 58.34 / meter? I know, I know, I can just call and ask, but wanted to check if anyone here may know as they're not terribly communicative and there is a real language barrier at play.

Thanks,
ET

I think they mean per style, per pattern, per piece, etc.

Phew. Thanks Chris!

I know Acorn upcharges for color combinations, but I'm glad to see that it isn't industry practice.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
