The Princess and the Frog Fabric


Attenzione! The gnomes have left the building, all squirreled away for warmer climes. Instead we have the very royal princess and her cohort, the rollicking but princely bullfrog. This beautiful and sturdy Japanese cotton-linen fabric is on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor, is 45” wide, and $29.99/yard.

Please email M. Du Jour at Britex Fabrics if you want to buy this fabric.

New Liberty of London Prints


Britex just got in eight new bolts of Liberty of London cotton. We are particularly enamored of this grouping of soft tawny prints. Someone told us that you could finger-press Liberty lawn to remove wrinkles, and to our surprise we discovered that they were correct. Liberty is incredibly drapable, long-lasting, and luxurious. The wee pairs of parrots would be chirpingly perfect for a child’s heirloom smock, and the rained-out looking abstract cityscape would make a stunning tailored shirt. Liberty of London cotton is 54” wide, $49.99/yard, and can be found on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor.

Please email M. Du Jour at Britex Fabrics if you want to buy any of these four fabrics.

The King has No Clothes Japanese Cotton


Yikes! It certainly appears that the Emperor has no clothes. We love the swindler tailors in their fezzes, and the king in his majestic crown and striped shorts.

It is Japanese cotton/linen fabric, 45” wide, $29.99 a yard, and found on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor.

Luxury Cotton Shirtings at Britex


Britex Fabrics is the place to come to when you are looking for fabric to make bespoke shirts. We carry amazing pima shirting cottons, including imported Sea Island and Swiss solids, newly arrived Etro stripes, and more. These cottons make wonderful shirts; so soft that they almost feel like silk, long-wearing, and in a plethora of solids, tone-on-tones, tartans, plaids, and stripes. A well-dressed dandy will dress in subtly striped shirts with the marvelous spiffiness of contrasting Liberty of London collar linings, cuff linings, and collar stands. We like this combination of an espresso Etro stripe, plus a graceful Arts & Crafts-inspired Liberty of London print. Très chic!

Please email M. Du Jour at Britex Fabrics if you want to buy either of these two fabrics.
