    There is a particular fabric I'm looking for a piece I'm recreating that I'm having a lot of trouble finding. I know it's a woolen weave, but that could mean several different things. Despite all my searches, I still have been unable to find anything that looked quite like this: Does anyone...

    There is a particular fabric I'm looking for that I'm having a lot of trouble finding. I believe it is a type of Tweed, except it doesn't really fit any in the commonly known and accepted categories of Tweed. Instead, it looks like this: Does anyone know what to call this fabric/tweed or what...

    I'm new to buying these name brand fabrics, but since buying a Charles Clayton and VBC, I won't buy anything less. They are just an amazing difference in the lower end fabrics in look and feel.

    I just had a Navy MTM suit done at LS in NY. Came out great and I like the fabric a lot (Loro Piana 120 I believe). It does, though, wrinkle easier than my usual RTW suits. The wrinkles fall out easily once hung, but it is something I have noticed. I'm going to have another one made, in...

    I was looking at a Zegna Su Misura suit made from this blend: 52% Mohair 24% Wool 24% Silk. Anyone familiar with the hand of such fabrics? Worried about the sheen and the feel (may be very stiff). Can anyone tell me how the fabric drapes - is it similar to an all wool or wool/cashmere suit or...

    Does anybody know a tailor in New York City who's good at creating pants that match the fabric of a jacket? (I made the mistake of not getting separate pair of pants for a white dinner jacket and just using the one that came with the black one, but that's another discussion.) The pants are...

    I was shopping around and was introduced to fabric by Comero made in Italy. I was told Polo and some other "names" use their fabrics for suiting. Does anyone know anything about them? How is the quality compared to some of the mills in England? It is about 1/2 the cost. thanks! Ari

    Some time back, members of this Forum discussed the idea of having a special fabric woven -- a Prince of Wales check flannel with a distinctive overcheck. It was an interesting idea.
