  • B. Black & Sons Navy Melton Fabric - Anyone Have Experience With This?

    http://www.bblackandsons.com/fabrics...ic-p-1347.html

    Hey, folks!
    Looking for domestic options for Fed coat fabrics. Right now the best options are either Kochan and Phillips or Hainsworth (about $100/yard). I'm not looking to cut corners, but trying to figure out what's available.

    Anyone see this stuff in person?
    Curious how heavy it is, if it holds a cut edge, finish, etc.

    Thanks!

    I'll bump this up and include their "Australian Super" and "Luxury Superfine":

      My suggestion would be to ask for some samples and see how it looks. I have used their flannel for years and it is nice stuff. For the superfine, if your going to spend $70 from them you might as well get K&P. That is great fabric. My 2 cents!

        Melton is NOT the same as wool flannel. B Black does sell 5/6 oz wool flannel, unfortunately their blue is a DARK Navy, NOT indigo. I get lining material from them, but not coat material...
