Isn't all of H&M's stuff lined in polyester?

What's the point of shelling out any amount of $$ for a summer suit that won't breathe?

they are separate , its not a OTR suit per se, you can buy the blazer $75
or the pants $35

and the sizes are weird. if you buy a 40R/ 50 labeled suit you would need the 34r/44 pants

i orignally wanted the grey suit, but it didn't have any pants with the jacket, so i ended up with black

yeah, the lining is polyester and quality is pretty bad, this is comparing it to a linen cornelianai built polo blazer,

on the ralph lauren, the buttons are sewn on better, the weave is "tighter" the linen weave on the H&M one has a visible strech when you pull at the fabric, the crneliani one has a better lining and overall feels more strudy.

with that said, mine developed its first shiny spot, within a month. I'm going to go back and complain about the issues i had. maybe try to exchange it since its still in the return period.

overall not that happy

how easy/difficult for DIY or tailor is it to remove the polyester lining to make it an unlined jacket? Advised against doing so?

I imagine it would be rather simple, but with a chance of looking pretty bad depending on how well the jacket is finished on the inside, how much lining the jacket actually has to remove, and how you remove the lining.

They had a bunch of 1/2 lined cotton and linen jackets (maybe suits, all the pants were on floor racks and the jackets on the wall).

I was surprised how tight they were in the shoulders. I'm usually a 40, sometimes even a 38, and at H&M the 42 was still a bit narrow in the shoulders.

They looked pretty good for the price though.

i just looked at my new one, exchanged the linning looks like its sewn to a taping running along the seams, so im guessing if you ct that taping out you can pull it out with ease,

but you will need to sew down the edges of the linen material where thepocket used to prtrude past the lining
