Dainite sucks.
Is this for a blazer or a suit? Any season needed? How formal-- does it have to be wool?
I don't think you'll find that one on Amazon.
I saw this book today. The 10oz hopsack looks terrific. Only three colors, but very useful ones. Looks like it would play well in the mid/lightweight Fresco sandbox. Travel suit (or all-day charcoal suit for cool days and stuffy rooms)?
There's a thought.
Just handed in and uploaded a master's dissertation. On the downside, I have to figure out what to do next.
A mock portfolio isn't a bad idea. Good habit to get into, though, which seems to be omitted by a lot of chatterers; track your performance. If you start with a hypothetical $100K and it goes to $105K, you're up 5%. You might learn more by figuring out your individual positions, and where /how you did well-- or not. But don't get so hung up on those you forget to measure your skill. People tend to look at the crumbs and assume the whole loaf is doing great.
Is it your intention to invest, to entertain yourself, or pay $2,000 for an education? Be sure of that before you make any further plans.
I was just in the Whitcomb & Shaftesbury shop, and they had some Ariston books with 13oz Irish linen. Very classic stuff, and less complicated than many of the patterns they're more famous for.
By dealing with the humidity, heavy linen buys you a lot of space on the thermometer. Especially if you use linen or linen blend shirts (and socks!).
