Thanks for the reply. I guess the Angora (20%) is mixed in to add softness?

Fay usually has some very nice (but pricey) items. I have a lightweight, waterproof jacket from this year's spring/summer collection. This one for autumn is rather nice as well: http://www.fay.it/web/index.htm#m_co...men/287&db=12&
Mungai makes some very nice ones, in both linen and cotton: http://www.mungai.com/ I have only bought them in stores, but it seems like you can order from their website as well (although the webshop layout is far from perfect!).

I am about to order a jacket in a fabric similar to this (not me in the picture). I am thinking to get a quarter lined jacket to use in fall, winter & spring (I like the softness of unlined jackets). Does anyone have any specific recommendations on fabric maker/book for a navy windowpane? My tailor has H&S, Harrisons, Drapers, Dormeuil and Edwin Woodhouse.

I believe I also read somewhere about brushing the insides of one's trousers. Is that correct or just my mistaken memory (should that be...
