The perfect is the enemy of the good. At least, that's my excuse.
Close. I've had some upholstery linen made into a sport coat:
You may be right that it doesn't belong in this thread, but Imo it does't look "really ugly" or "God awful." It's certainly not something I'd wear, but I do like it and I think that in some way, it's in good taste. The construction details aren't my faves, but the fabrics are nice, the make and fit are good, and the color and pattern combos look solid.Could be. The lighting certainly isn't ideal.

These are more poor man's versions, but I like it, the vintage non-round watch. A couple of made in Waltham Walthams:
What color are the pants, Dopey?

Dieworkwear has been looking for some light navy/air force blue and posted a couple pics.Regarding patterned linens or linen blends, I'd like a large scale, neutral color glen plaid. -- a summer version of this Breanish tweed:Although, hemp/hemp blend would be better imo/e, while I'm dreaming.+1 ...
