I've created a cloth thread for those who want to show off their cloth for CMT.Another reason is that I dont want the suiting thread to be filled up with cloth pics.

Let me start with some gorgeous designs from my Italian swatch books:

Cashmere and silk

Soft and light are the 2 main characteristics of the cloth.

We need a name for this thread that isn't a verbatim copy of the SF equivalent. Any suggestions?

The first thing that occurred to me was "Lamb to the Slaughter" (not just because there's wool, but also because we are indeed like lambs to TS' slaughter) but that's just morbid. So I guess The Cloth Thread works just fine. :D

Any of you felt pure escorial next to normal wool before? How does the thing feel like?

I have read that escorial tailors better. As for the feeling, the only time I've felt is a swatch from Taylor & Lodge which contains 50% escorial. Its silky smooth.

Just received some lovely cloths. Will post pics soon.

He came into the hotel room with a roller suitcase in tow. I thought he wanted to spend the night, but it turned out the suitcase housed only cloths and swatch books.
