I just checked the Linton Tweed online shop. The fact they sell outside of 'trade' is good, but the cloth names are weird. There's nothing there really suitable for making up traditional men's tailoring. It looks more like the cloths used for making up ladies' fashion suits, skirts, which is okay if that's what's required.

So I wasn't completely off-base :) The cloths look very much like many a Chanel jacket I've seen at weddings over the decades.

"The cloths look very much like many a Chanel jacket I've seen at weddings over the decades."

Funny you should say that, Henry, here's a Linton Tweeds jacket  that I made last summer for my nephew's outdoor wedding. I could zip it up and be warm *and* smart. I don't know if you can see in the picture but it's got some gold metallic thread in the weave. Just the right amount of glitz for a wedding. And did I say it kept me warm...


[ps: let me know if no picture displays, just working out how to do this]

I thought I did this one already but I must have forgotten to press Post;

Don't forget ACORN FABRICS, shirting and other stuff.  I have got a lot of stuff from them.

I did say "here are a few... didn't I?" Only joking, I pop it on the list.

You did mention it Graham, but, it was on the copy on the play-pen which Hutch had copied to sort out a coding question I had. :)
