Mohair 'flannel' - Double Breasted

With the cooler months just around the corner we've turned our attention to designing some new pieces for Autumn & Winter.
Grey flannel is a great look, and when done properly this style of fabric makes a fantastic suit. Unfort due to our climate it's difficult to use a decent weight flannel as the weather simply doesn't allow it. English and US labels will often use a flannel that is 12 oz+ and the fall and drape of a fabric this heavy is hard to match.
As an alternative we've found an interesting mohair that has been woven in the UK, it is a lighter weight and far more practical. The weave does give a 'flannel' look, but in a fabric that is much easier to wear.

This peaked lapel, double-breasted jacket has just arrived and we've had the pockets jetted in a charcoal mohair and the jacket finished with our horn buttons.
