Fall 2012 Worsted Wools Part II

New worsted wools for Fall 2012!!  These are super 130 grade wools in a year round weight of about 9oz.  All cloths Italian made.

Med Grey:  as medium grey is a very popular color option, I am happy to add another one to compliment the palette.  This fabric is great for an all purpose suit, it is a very versatile shade, that is easy to dress up/down as needed.  The cloth has a twill weave, so there is a prominent visual texture created by the weave pattern.

Grey Windowcheck:  Anytime I have offered a cloth like this it sells out fast!!  The colorway is a med grey but on a slightly darker end of the "medium" spectrum, but definitely NOT a dark grey.  It has a complex windowcheck pattern.  There are actually 2 overchecks, one in a light blue and one in a lighter grey.  The combination of the 2 overchecks creates about a 1" x 1.25" size "window".  Definitely not a loud pattern, but has a lot of character to it.

Charcoal Birdseye:  As charcoal is still the best selling color, here is another option in a fantastic birdseye pattern.  Great visual texture, slightly larger "dot" than what I would consider to be a "nailhead".  The shade of grey is actually quite unique, it's dark grey but on the warm grey side (as opposed to a cool grey) of the grey spectrum

Navy Windowcheck:  A fantastic cloth for those looking for navy with personality.  The windowcheck is VERY subtle, to the point where I would call this cloth a solid.  The check is in a lighter shade of blue, about 1 shade off from the base color, so it is very un-noticeable unless you look up close.  A nice shade of blue as well.

Navy Birdseye:  I think this navy fabric will be a bestseller.  GREAT shade of navy in a more "blue" color.  Def not a dark "work-suit" navy color.  Same birdseye pattern as the charcoal listed above. This will definitely sell fast and is one of my favorite navy colors I have offered.  A great economic alternative to the VBC 127.

All cloths are $500 shipped conus with the usual disclaimer on shipping out of country etc.  These cloths, at the moment, seem to be restockable but I would definitely order sooner than later if you want to be sure to get something you have your mind set on.

2012 Fall Worsteds Part I

Finally after many requests for a worsted grey herringbone suit cloth, we are happy to say we've found a good one, very soft finish and great hand.  Fabric is a super 130 fibre and is a perfect shade of medium grey with subtle herringbone pattern.  Probably the best herringbone suit cloth offered so far!   Also in our first batch of new cloths, a Navy Prince of Wales.  Same hand and finish as the herringbone, this cloth is a great option for those looking for a navy suit with personality, with a classic Prince of Wales pattern including a burgundy overcheck.  A great subtle pattern that will function well as both a social suit or a work environment suit.  There will be a few more additions to worsted wools upcoming in the next week or so, so stay tuned!

2012 Tweeds

New fabrics finally arriving after being lost in customs for longer than expected....The first 2 are grey tweeds, both nice heavier weight for winter, would make great jackets.  The salt/pepper has an "oatmeal" texture of alternating black and white specks to create a richly textured medium grey shade tweed.  The herringbone is a classic dark grey/charcoal shade that would make for a good cloth to wear as a full suit or of course, as separates.  More cloths will arrive over the next week and half, including new worsted wools for suits!

NEW VbC blue navy!

As I've been getting a lot of request for a "blue" navy, I managed to get this cloth from Vitale Barberis Canonico (VBC), which is indeed a "blue" looking navy, even moreso than the #127 which was the previous "blue-est" navy I had.  This cloth is coded as VBC 130, so if interested please refer to that as its name.

And the other VBCs (124, 125, 127, 121, 122) are also all restocked and available as well!
