Shoe, I forgot to say thank you for the great FAMs. Wonderful shoes. If you come across anything more in my size, let me know.
I need a new pair of frames and was thinking about the style Malcolm wore. Does anyone know who makes a really high quality pair of frames in this style?

I really like pindots with less contrast than the typical British silks, i.e., navy w/ lavender, wine w/ dark red, navy w/ slate, etc.

Putting weight/warmth issues aside, is there any reason not to go Crispaire? I guess I'm trying to understand the factors that would go into deciding...

If the air is still, it will wear about like a 13 ounce worsted. Great travel cloth and fine indoors, but not for warm weather. Think 50-75 degrees f. Thanks Will. Sounds like it might be a little warm for my needs. I've been happy with 10 oz. fabrics with half linings. ...

I have an isaia suit that really seems to handle wrinkles well. I wish i could find out what fabric it has - someone had told me once it was a 120 Scabal but i dont consider the source particularly informed. Do you have fabrics other than Target that you...
It's a month away from another Chan visit, so I'm starting to think about fabric choices. My last three suits have been H&S Target 10 oz., and I've been happy except for the tendency to wrinkle.
