"crash linen"Hm. You gave us the term, but as for the learning, you kinda left us on our own. I even had to get past google's Did You Mean CRUSHED Linen? Onward, keep looking. Here's Britannica's take: http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/141869/crash?anchor=ref70117Which points to the term "Russian crash" which I happen to have a link for purchasing, I've bought from these folks a few times [for domestic uses], you might want to take a look at these folks, sir. That is, should you be interested in Russian crash which is heavily slubbed, very inexpensive. http://www.fabrics-store.com/first.php?goto=fabric_type&menu=f&fabric_type=1-Old Faithful
From the ad I take it to mean natural (unbleached and undyed) linen. I have a sport coat made from it (the fabric was cheap). I never knew such fabric had a special name.
As for myself, I would just like to have the opportunity to buy a brand new Crash suit for only $38.
Double breasted too!
"From the ad I take it to mean natural (unbleached and undyed) linen. I have a sport coat made from it (the fabric was cheap)."Ok. What color is your sportcoat that's made from natural/unbleached/cheap/undyed/crash linen? Is it brownish like that which is today called "flax"? or is it yellowish like what we today called "natural"?-Old
