Since I've already received a couple of messages concerning our kersey project I figured I would disseminate all of the facts right here so everyone is on the same page. Whereas I normally don't like to sell or even advertise for a product until it is ready to ship, I can see that won't be the case with this one and so I'll share with you all what little information there is up to now (and this will also allow me to direct email inquiries to this thread.)
In bullet points:
-We are doing a run of English Army Cloth that will be based on the material in a surviving jacket.
-There will be plenty of fabric to go around.
-This will be a one-time run and not something we plan to stock indefinitely.
-We will be offering a variety of ways to get a jacket from this fabric (yardage, kits, blanks, finished jackets.)
-We plan to have the fabric on hand about one year out from the event.
-We may take pre-orders once we have everything set in stone with the mill (we are at a very early point in the process.)
-Brian is planning some limited runs of royal blue kersey for trousers. Once we have more information about that we will make announcements.
-And as information about this run becomes available we will keep everyone informed.
That's all the news that's fit to print!
