I am told that cloth merchant J&J Minnis has decided to end production of its Crown Classic collection, a range of 11 1/2-12 ounce (330-350 gram) business suitings in super 100s wool worsted and cashmere. The current stock is on clearance, offered for what was described to me to £20 per metre but on the Minnis site appears instead to be £24 per metre. Either way, that is a reduction on the order of 60% and worth a look. In addition to the usual pinstripes and solids, there are somewhat harder to find birdseyes, pick and pick and other traditional patterns.
