    My favorite Zegna Traveler 9 ounce navy fabric is sold out until next year and I need to commission a new 2 piece suit with neapolitan shoulders.

    Please can you recommend a similar H&S or J&J Minnis fabric that I can order.

    I am looking for a fabric that will look very smart and elegant with good shape.

    Many thanks.

    Try H&S Crispaire or Crystal Srping, but my favorite will be H. Lessor tropical range.

    I only lik eJJ minnis heavy stuff.

    For fabric that resist wrinkles for travelling, H&S Crispaire and J&J Minnis Frescos are high twist material that also tend to have better air circulation making them cooler to wear when compared to same weight fabric in other weaves.

    Harrison's Frontier might be another good choice in this category. I know that Patrick Chu likes to boost it.
