I saw the Crispaire and the Finmerescro, and I think I remember the Cape Kid being there, but I have no idea if the Gilt Twist made the trip from Kowloon. If you're interested in an open weave summer fabric, he also had the Minnis Fresco II.
I ended up pulling the trigger on a double breasted suit in the W. Bill linen in a bright air force blue and a couple of pair of odd trousers in the Crispaire. I almost got a dinner jacket in the Harrison's tartan, but demurred. I'd probably be able to wear such a thing about twice a year, if I'm lucky.
If you want Patrick to bring a particular book, you should ask when you make your appointment. I do, and they always make sure he has it. This time, I asked for the Harrison's tartan, the Crispaire, the Fresco II and the Finmeresco.
