Bump to say I received the BBGF suit I bought from this seller today, and I think it's worth noting that he packs things more securely than most electronics makers do. UPS would've had to shoot at the box to damage the wood GF hanger!
I wear linen squares all year. I don't own a wool one, but I usually like some texture contrast between my coat and square. If the wool one provides that, go for it.

I think there's a difference everyone's ignoring: the difference between investing and gambling.

Borrowing to gamble was never...

I found both my summer sublet and my normal residence through CL. And sold some furniture on it. Bought a pair of really nice temporary speakers (NHT 2.9) for the summer. It's no more or less safe than the newspaper classifieds are (were), even though the barrier to entry is lower.
