Traditionally the outer back is satin, silk. but now a same cloth can be used.  Its less formal, maybe fantasie style too.

The lining was always silk first, poly as next choice. I have used cotton prints - liberty (cost more than the wool)

BTW interlining is traditionally linen canvass.

I may be a little out of date here but generally a vest, coat or jacket uses a different lining material to the outside material and it is usually a fine very smooth lining. I have a couple of rolls of lining that I picked up a few years ago and it is characteristically a very fine close weave fabric made for the task.

The Apprentice's Forum / Vest/waistcoat lining and fabric questions
« Last post by Mr.gustavsson on August 13, 2018, 06:48:43 PM »
Out of curiosity, how does the choice of color and fabric differ for the back and inner lining for the vest of a 3-piece suit? And are there any preferences for the type of suit/occasion?

In some cases the back is made from the same fabric as the front, which would make the inner lining the same as the jacket. When is this style usually used?

If the back part is not made from the same fabric as the front, would the back and inner lining always be the same (color/fabric)? And should this color and fabric always match the inner lining of the jacket?

Cheers,

The whole internet is going in this direction and the days of anything free when it comes to storage space is over. Some of them could once make ends meet with advertising but that has effectively dropped dead so they either have to ask for fees or go bust. I think many of them will go bust anyway. Data storage and bandwidth have both become cheaper over time but few pass it on to the public, they just look at it as a venture to make money from.

Good news! But a bit strange. I quickly checked the Terms of use and they still don't allow 3rd party hosting for free accounts.

The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If you are interested in image linking and/or 3rd party image hosting, you will need to subscribe to one of our Paid Accounts.

Justa FYI: At the time of this posting, 8_1_18, all the broken Photobucket links I've surfed through are working. Time to backup priceless info helpful to study.

The tailoring world has pretty much blocked some content from the non-tailors to protect the industry.

Yeah I could log back in, just was shocked to see that there is a limited amount of information available to non-members.  Normally you would be able to all but not make any comments, as here. It's just the sign up for new registration "captcha" is broken.
