 Thanks, that is helpful.  It's at least a source for the source of the fabric.  I like how it looks in your pics better than those of the Armoury.Very interesting.  Maybe I'm crazy.  Or maybe it's just relative.  I was comparing it to the green Zegna, and similar fabrics with a very open, textured weave.  And in that comparison the Drapers seemed pretty flat, two-dimensional, and tightly woven.  Of course, I could just be mis-remembering, but I've looked at it on at least...

^I agree.  It's very good for Bay Area weather.  But I prefer something heavier w/ an open weave.   My favorite fabric for hot weather is this Zegna: At least, I think it's heavier than the Drapers.  The Drapers says it's 7.5 oz and 240 grams.  But 240 grams is 8.5 oz. +1 @edmorel? I like this jacket posted by parkman24, which he says is made by Ring Jacket.  Maybe he could let us know who made the fabric.: This is something I took a pic of at the NMWA trunk show: I can't...
I've been very happy w/ my pents (6).  They hang w/o creasing, allow perfect mobility, and have never had a seam, bar tack, or button come loose.
 That stuff looks great, but iirc, it seemed too densely woven for hot, humid weather.
 Thanks to you and UC for correcting me about his jacket.  It's great either way.  In a perfect world, I'd love to have both cream/brown and black/cream.  By black/gray, did you mean the one you posted a pic of, this one?: Quote:Originally Posted by edmorel really wanted to get this plaid but its doublesided and too thick I thought, the pattern makes for a great sportcoat and so hard to find in linen but unfortunately had to pass on this:  It looks more cream than gray to...
 This one?  I like that a lot.  The glen plaid?  If we could get something like that woven in about 10 oz, I'd be in.  I've been wanting a summer version of the T4phage Breanish glen plaid.  I'd probably prefer cream and dark brown to black.  And maybe a blend over pure linen, like UC's linked above.
FWIW, I almost never get pants lined, certainly not linen or other warm-weather clothing, like fresco or tropical wool .
