Those that order their cloth themselves might be interested to know that J&J Minnis has a special offer on its website for the Crown Classic bunch, as it is being phased out. This is a lovely selection, weighing 320-350 grammes in a Super 100s wool with a touch of cashmere, that I have had made into suiting before. It has a nice handle yet wears well.

It is being sold at £20 a metre plus VAT and postage, until stock runs out in the various designs on offer. I highly recommend it.
