Doesn't look so spectacular to me. J&J Minnis has some similar flannels in their current book, and at 16 oz. in a decent weight, too. Fox must have numerous spectacular designs from the Golden Era and before that are utterly unavailable today. I'd like to see some of those.
I guess Michael Alden makes quite a bit of money with the fabrics. I believe he's kind of the classic middle man. I appreciate that he goes through all the trouble of actually designing fabrics not available anywhere else. But at £100 per meter these fabrics are not an option for most Loungers. If we as Loungers would be able to get enough commissions we could do the same with Fox and have some beautiful fabrics made for about half the price I guess. I suppose the biggest obstacle would be to get enough commissions from Loungers.
And i can just imagine the look of absolute disapproval on the face of Mrs Two Types if I was to appear wearing a three piece suit cut from that. I can just hear you shouting: "You look like a geography teacher!"
"I know I believe in nothing, but is my nothing."
Well, let's hope he's unearthing some fantastic stuff and not just normal pin stripes and the like. The brown fabric is somewhat unusual after today's standards, to be fair. Hardly anybody wears brown suits anymore. But back in the day this fabric would have been nothing special at all.
And he's having forty different fabrics recreated? That's some serious money he's taking in his hands there.
Then Again Herringbonekid, Do you think that J Press or Brooks Brothers are still like they were Before 1980 or so. And Do you think Lighter cloths like(super 180s) have a place in sunny, warmer areas?
