Traditional Design in a Unique Fabric
While at Michael's Custom Clothiers this weekend I stumbled across a beautiful fabric made out of Worsted Wool (50%), Linen (30%) & Silk (20%). The fabric came in a multitude of designs and colors but my favorite were the houndstooth and herringbone. They were both tan and navy a striking combination. Perfect for warm weather, or year around in a warm weather city like Los Angeles.
Personally, I would opt for the herringbone design to be made into a suit and the houndstooth to be made into an odd jacket. Either option would be quite fun to be seen made into a finished piece. The fabrics were part of a Savile Row "Island" collection. Neither textile would be seen in on the rack made to wear clothing. Yet another reason to get your suits & jackets made bespoke, selection.
