Hi guys,

Looking for some help in searching for some (reasonably priced) black and grey Houndstooth Tweed/wool material (three guesses as to which coat I'm making!) I can't seem to find any that is affordable and readily available in the UK. Looking for something about 150/60cm wide (about 60 inches). Any help would be grand!

Something akin to these:







By the way, I should mention, I'm looking for about 7-8 metres of the stuff!

Cheers.

"Uh-uh. I know what you're thinking. Did he discharge 6 chambers, or was it only 5? Well, I rather forgot myself, what with all this excitement and all. But seeing that this is a .45 Civiliser, the most powerful hand-cannon in the Empire, and will blow your goggles clean off, you ought to ask yourself a question. Do I feel lucky?

"Well, do you... steampunk?"

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

If I had a time machine, I could get it from the couch in my childhood home.

It's okay, I'm sure whatever was written there had a reason to be removed!

If all else fails then you could try Ali Express - I have had three dealings using their services (Electronics) with success.
www.aliexpress.com
Would look the part if nothing else!

Did you just go PSSSSSSST at me or have I just sprung a leak?

I'm not retreating, I'm advancing in another direction.

I have been looking on there as well and there are some possibilities for stand-ins, but as of yet no houndstooth...  :'(

The black gray (?)  colour is fairly uncommon I  this part of the world. Most houndstooth I've seen in fashion and crafts is black and white, or some lighter shade countered with black (beige and even pink).

I second the motion of international trades websites. DH Gate, is another one besides AliExpress.
