I’m just starting out in the wild and wacky world of mens fashion and I was wondering if anybody has ever used alternatives to suit canvas and fusible interlining in making suit coats or sports jackets? From my understanding suit canvas seems like a felt made from specifically horse or camel hair, and it’s rather expensive to practice with, and I have literally 0 experience with fusible interlining, though it seems to be not held in high regards by the tailors (and bloggers) of mens fashion.
Would a regular wool felt be an acceptable substitute? Are their any other which would give the look and feel offered by traditional suit canvas at not nearly the break the bank price? Thank you in advance!
