  oh okay, I was so taken by the pic I didn't read the caption, but yep I've heard of the ancient thristy looms hand shuttle-ing silk or some such.  I meant the Riviera type scenery.
  What is this?  Don't know what I'm looking at here E, but it's pretty weird.    Love this, altho a fit that IMO would be better sans  tie,  especially considering where u r.....   .or perhaps a feather-lite  slubby silk, or something less neat and buisness-y,   Very very nice! Blue box-check blazer FTWEspecially like that you went for the blue rather than white deco. White can look showy if there's too much contrast, IMO thumbs up  to AAS.    IMO u've stepped everything...
   OD/OT-  he had/has sprezz.    Just need to have one hand bridged on a desk, and a painting in the bk ground.  For my money, Clags pic stands out. 
 Well Kolecho knows his stuff. but  not sure what u mean in terms of 'volante'  and jacketing.  More of a trews thing isnt it?
that's really really nice Stefan.  What is the make of the mohair blend?  Im thinking of getting something  in Tonik. (Dormeuil's)What makes me hesitate is the lustre, which I find is a bit too showy for my taste, especially for the office,  but yours doesnt seem to have the mohair sheen at all, so Im curious. 
 Ha, it's was your recommendation that tempted me.    i can feel the drape-iness just from the cloth   I love Tonik but I feel it has limited use in a work context.  I've read conflicting views about old v new mohair blends.  Some say there's nothing like the old stuff, esp Tonik in 3 ply, and others say the mohair now is superior in quality-  finer, less brittle and less prone to drying out and cracking
 so hopsack at the extreme of informality.  I like the idea of a hopsack suit. 
 so on-song lately
 I was going to get an DB with this Harrisons Oyster but not sure whether birdseye is the right choice. As u can see, a lot of texture.  I'm liking Oyster, but maybe want a more formal weave. I'm thinking in order from casual to formal in most suitings it goes something like:   hopsack birdseye nailhead sharkskin chalkstripe herringbone plainweave pinstripe   .. all other things being equal.
