I have a wool/linen suit made from a lightweight Kerry Knoll fabric that wears great. I'd say it rumples like a heavier linen if that makes sense, but it does have a bit of a sheen in natural light.

To me, the blends without silk wear a bit cooler than WSL in the same weight, but of course that depends on the weave also (e.g. It's a...
The off-black horse that was used for the chelseas with a black sole would be killer in this
