I've enlisted the help of a good friend and dedicated hobbyist, Gino Sabatino in my quest to find some decent material for the inside of the cape. Gino has spent a lot of time hunting down (and finding!) equally rare materials for other projects, so I thought it would make sense to run this one by him.
I've sent scans of both the cape material and the briefs material over to Gino in the hopes that he can leverage his fashion industry contacts to find something that is a closer match than what I have found so far.
I also recently had some contact from Sebastian, the guy in Argentina who is making my boots. He tells me that we are still on track for a december delivery.
