Phew, luckily that's not the one I covet. I really want to buy, but I want to buy so many things, it's not prudent.

Thank you for presenting us with such luxury exotics. When I was still a student and reading SF (the heydays, not like now) & LL (when MA was still actively posting), the Carlo Barbera for H. Lesser collection was spoken of in hushed tones. People were in awe with the thing. Then Carlo Barbera went belly up and a few years after H. Lesser sold itself and it was the end of an era.

I read this article when it came out and searched it out for you people. It's quite interesting:

Today's trunk show had a great turnout. There was a time when 5 people were in the room. Two suiting lengths were sold, one a Lumb's Golden Bale and another a Lesser SFT.

The contents of TS's wheelie bag are getting more and more precious. You'd better get some insurance for that thing

It takes a bit of patience, that's all.

On the Huddersfield Fine Worsteds website looking for linings for my kerbau cloth project and I noticed a couple things:

-New Minnis cloths are up. Fresco II which has a wider range of patterns, and the QX and QZ range, both of which cost an arm and a leg.
-Leftover lengths of Hardy Riviera are now listed as discontinued - which I take it meants discounts on whatever suitings that are left. Not for me, but bargain hunters may find useful for the odd SC.
-I don't recall such a wide range of Hunt and Winterbotham on the previous iteration of the site, but man there are some ferociously gorgeous patterns.

Hmm yes. Lining! Hadn't thought about that. What did you think was interesting from Huddersfield?

Gerald: If you read this, did the kimono silk work out as lining in the end?

Lining recommendation was from Nani - the H&W lining book is at Iris for those who would like more variety in their commissions, although Nani advises customers to order direct from Huddersfield. For the H.Lesser suit, I intend to purchase 2.5m of #105892, which is the striped paisley and blue...

Yeah, that was pretty much the only decent one I saw there. I'm quite happy with a plain white one for my Kerbau cloth commission. Pindots on white field would be nice too. Or light grey stripe on white.

@kotmj: What do you do about linings for your commissions?
