From what I've heard, Irish linen is supposed to be a little better quality overall but that's just what I've read online and isn't specific to these linens. Haha I'm not sure if I answered your question too well sorry!

    We mostly just went by the colour selection and wound up liking the Irish Linen best so that's what we'll be ordering when I get it put through in the next day or two.
    Thanks girl. I figured the quality might be a little better because the price is more. I guess I need to order some swatches. So I can really see the difference.

      I know there was a swatch pass-it-on going around so you might be able to find someone who has put in their order and could pass them on to you?

        Ooh, and that reminds me! I have a CAUTION to post, more just to make everyone aware when passing on the swatches...

        Here's the story....

        Both myself and fellow BDW'er SuzyQ76 had been lucky enough to have two other BDW'ers willing to send their swatches to us so that we could order our suits. Originally Suzy had it all set up so we sat patiently waiting on the regular post for them to arrive and sadly no such day came. We just assumed that they had been lost in the mail. So as a backup option, I knew of another bride who could send them to us, but again no arrival day came

        Finally Suzy and I ordered our swatches directly from Studio Suits and they arrived within a few days which was AWESOME! When I received them, the swatches were in a plain white envelope, inside another mailing envelope and then inside the FedEx envelope - and both the inner two envelopes had been opened up for the contents to be inspected.

        This seemed to confirm my suspicion that there must be some reason that the swatches were being "tagged" at the border between Canada and the US, since both the girls who were sending Suzy and I the swatches were in the US (we're both here in Alberta).

        So my caution is this - for anyone who is kind enough to happily pass on the swatches for other brides to use, it may be worthwhile to send them with a tracking number or, sadly, keep them in the US if they're already there and keep them in Canada if they're already here :S
        With shipping costs of the swatches being a little higher than we'd all normally like to pay, I'm hoping this will save a few headaches and a few dollars for all of us! I don't want this to deter anyone from ordering from the site though as any interaction I've had with the company itself has been excellent.

          If you order a suit, be sure to let us know what you think!

            We're just getting the pants sorry - but I'll definitely be able to comment on the Irish Linen once we get them!

                    That is awesome news. Which suit did you go with the one for 99 or the one that was the Irish linen?
