Fine Clothing

3 posts in this topic

I am getting ready to have some clothes made and will probably need to come up with my own fabric. The clothes should be befitting someone of a governors status so very very nice. Any advice on where or what material I should be looking at? Currently I am thinking about a heavy possibly Thai silk in a single color.

Fine wool would be appropriate. It is available in a variety of weights. Check out the options with Burnley and Trowbridge. I bought a fine camlet from them that is combination silk, wool and linen, light as a feather, combining properties of all three. But they have other nice things, including silks. You will probably want a fine lace (tape trim) for things like edges of pocket flaps, button holes and such, if you don't have it embroidered. They can help direct you to what you need if they don't have it themselves.
