Anyone pick up the new linen blend sweaters? Wondering about the hand on the fabric. Sometimes those blends can be crazy itchy. Any first impressions?
 Ain't that the truth. @sacafotos I don't think there's any bleeding on those items. After they're dyed, they're double rinsed. My dark pique shirt hasn't bled. Washing the garment yourself before you wear, of course, is always good practice.
 Nahh, that's pretty brown. A blue overcheck/windowpane doesn't mean you can't wear with navy pants, and in both cases the dominant color is brownish.
 Brown SCs are natural matches for grey and navy pants -- or tan/khaki for that matter, as long as the tones don't match too much. IMO brown-toned SCs are very versatile. The rusty tattersall looks perfect for that kind of thing. Also the navy isn't so dominant that you couldn't still wear with navy pants. It looks like a winner to me. Would definitely jump on that if I weren't already getting two Harris Tweed SCs. 
 Congratulations!!!  They aren't stocked, but if you e-mail the shop you can order different lengths, including longs, for most Southwick fabrics.
 Haha appreciate the pun. I completely sympathize with your pattern comments. All week, though, I had been solid-solid-pattern up top, and I was itching to mix it up.
 Haha in NYC leather jacket weather starts in October. In this humidity, I get envious of northern climates. Grabbed the blackgrape and vintage black loopwheeled tees, and the darker (rinsed) pique tee. And I'm still seriously considering those henleys. Mike told me that to nail the vintage black tone, he sent the dye house an old Metallica t-shirt. Every time I wear the shirt now, I think of "The Four Horsemen."
