@Epaulet The suede blouson looks fantastic, though a bit warm for NYC just now. Any chance there will be a restock of the same item for the fall?Google imaging my 70s/80s musical idols is way more fun than it should be, almost as fun as listening to the actual music.
Love how Dio is the small. (He and Danzig were actually the same height.) As someone who's between a medium and small, I like the idea that I'm half Dio half Joy Division.
My favorite part of this post, aside from the SKU, is that open-shirted Glenn Danzig is drinking red wine on the beach. Or is that rose??
 Last EFF I did this configuration -- except with smoke MOP buttons -- with the REDA Crosshatch Fresco as a suit. Will see if I can post a photo tomorrow.
 Sure, that's very possible. I'm not sure I think an unstructured shoulder is necessarily casual; it might have read that way in the 90s but less so today, when it's more to do with the fabric and styling. But anyway you know your office better than we all do. SW's natural shoulder is excellent and it'd make a great separates jacket with the patch pocket/breast welt.
 Sounds good, though I'd go two-button unconstructed on such an open weave and textured fabric. My preference is always for the tan horn buttons. EDIT: My preference is actually always for MOP buttons, but of the horn options the tan is far and away my favorite. If SW though had off-white and blue MOP (as Lubiam does I believe) I'd just as often go with those, likely.
@cyclohexane Great SC, and great pairing with the Best Friend of Mr. Snuffleupagus pants. Bold colors work so well with linen pants. I have a fairly bright green linen Walt from ages ago that wear all the time in warm weather.   Ace pattern matching from Southwick on the patch pockets. Makes me anticipate some of my forthcoming pickups.
U.S.-based Vanda customers: what have you found is the current transit time for packages from Singapore to the States? I haven't tried the newish SingPost/First Class option, which the site says is faster but has no insurance. I'm in New York, if it matters. Thanks!
Thanks Mike! For spring to early fall, does that mean warmer summer days would be out, or would it be wearable then, too?Also do you still have that swatch in store?
 Agreed. In particular I'm interested in a few things: first, how an unlined jacket would feel against a T-shirt. Would the fabric be itchy against bare skin, or not? And second, how well would it wear in the dog days of summer? It it more suited to transitional weather, or can it hang in July and August? I can't tell from the video because the weave seems very open but the fabric seems substantial. And the non-linen components of the linen blend would matter too, I...
