I think it was me. Here's the article:

The last New Yorker fashion article I remember was a nice piece on Balmain, otherwise nothing sticks out even though they have "fashion" issues.

no flash & lights off

its a bit big for that corner nook and just doesn't look right in there so trying out this middle spot and looking for some unbiased feedback, really unsure if it looks obtrusive here or not

we could try it out on other floors but were thinking of this one when we got it, also short matte black base or no base?

What did I miss.

Not sure if SW&D is the right place for this question, but what is the difference between LBM 1911 and Luigi Bianchi Mantova?

Looking at their coats.

My favorite fabrics are wool/linen and wool/ramie blends. I love the warmth and substance of a nice wool and I love how adding linen/ramie gives gives the garment a bit of stiffness and structure. I enjoy the creases that form over time, making the garment my own, and I like how I can put it in a hot shower and remove those creases if I want a fresh start. Almost all of my fall/winter outerwear is some form of wool/linen blend..

from rough, tough tweed...

...to teddybear soft fabric that looks even better when it pills...

to classic, smooth herringbone...




Welcome to the wool/linen fanclub (PS don't show this post to my uncle, Jews can't wear wool/linen!! - he's gonna get mad at me!)

Agreed with you on linen and ramie being great for blends. I think you're forgetting our old friend silk. Mix some raw silk with a bit of cotton and you've got some insane texture going on, e.g. Devoa's destroyed silk pieces and LUC's various tussah silk blend options. Goes surprisingly well with washi too.
