—01. Burberry cloth fabric.

Words

One of the best new styles in Daiki's last Woolrich collection is the Yosemite jacket. It comes in a khaki Burberry cloth fabric, which is lightweight, and nice for the spring, but ideal for layering the rest of the year. The jacket is just starting to hit Woolen Mills retailers now, starting with Nepenthes in Japan.

Have you seen the pictures of the next, Mark McNairy-designed, WWM collection? total disaster, the worst I've ever seen.

This looks flimsy!
Mark Mcnairy shoes are also fantastically pedestrian too.Pun not intended.

From deadstock Burberry fabric.

what exactly do you call a deadstock fabric ?

In this case, it is likely an older version of the Burberry fabric, that is not currently in use and production of the fabric is discontinued. The fabric only partially contributes to the cost, but all of the detailing and additional sewing/work required to make this make it pricey (along with being Made in USA).

OK, theres a lot of bullshit these days about fabrics being NOS, DS or whatever can make us think that the item is really authentic or whatever.

It's only interesting when you can get a type of weave that is not done anymore but in many cases, it's just a leftover fabric that's been stored for a few month/years, with a running equivalent, and no rare features.

FYI, burberry fabric can be bought for about 23£/m
