On a side note who pays $5K for an OTR PL suit?
At that price range there are so many serious bespoke options which should dominate the excellent quality OTR PL.
I just dont get it. Is it mostly brand whoring?
thanks for the good comments.
I like my IM linen sweater so far. Up to the 2nd wearing!
Any suggestion where one finds silk sweaters? I hadnt even thought of that.
My office can be cold in the summer so a sweater is very helpful (we are business casual).
I am looking a get some summer sweaters and want to learn a bit more about what are good materials. Cotton, linen....? Summer sweaters generally seem more stretchy and fragile than fall/winter wool ones. But not much cheaper.
I just got a 100% linen from Inis Meain (big sale) and want to see how it looks/wears after using it a bit.
Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated.
Thanks for the insights. I do prefer flannel or tweed in the winder as they seem warmer than worsted.
I think I want at least 20 ounce weight. I actually read about the old school 'gamekeeper' trousers that apparently were 24 ounce weight. It makes me think of folks walking on the Scottish moors in the winter.
I am certainly willing to consider MTM for good stuff. I hope it wouldnt cost over say $400-500.
I have a couple 14 ounce trousers which are warm enough to and back from work when its cold.
But I want to find some heavier ones - say 18 ounce+ - to wear when I am out in the cold for a while. For example I will be in London next week and will take a 3 hour outdoor walking tour. Heavy trousers seem might appropriate in this case.
Any suggestions where I can get heavier wool trousers - preferably in a modern cut? I dont want to look like I should...
A couple of my Hober grenadines have small threads popping up.
Any guidance on how to put th thread back in? I am willing to pay someone as my dexterity isn't that good. I live in NYC is there are tailors who can do this.
