Ok, bear in mind I started the fiesta early tonigt and I have to go meet my friends at a blues bar in about 20 minutes.
for tailored clothes, silk is primarily a material that has an effect on the viewer. Its not as nice for the wearer. the finer and softer the silk the more comfortable it is, however, if it isnt the best quality duppioni, it will be hot in warm weather, especially in the crotch, and cold in cold weather. Again, if it isnt the best quality, it will be stiff to the feel, and easily damaged or soiled. Thats why i think a semi-shiny wool is a better mate for a silk or silk blend jacket, or a mohair fabric, it matches the sheen but not the discomfort and delicacy.
