Two great posts in one day; on fire! I'm not sure which one is better. :D
The "Shitty Watercolour" guy would be even more appropriate, given the setting... ;)
Went shopping in the late afternoon after work, and bought a couple of pretty damn cool summery jackets: a sea-green DB with cream buttons from Loro Piana and a navy 3 patch from Zegna. Makes me yearn even more for some sunshine this year! The sea-green is a colour I haven't really worn before, but I think it will go rather well with with grey, white/beige, and navy trousers. Certainly, it will be fun to play with.
Also, I learnt about a new fabric. The Zegna jacket is 50% cotton, 50% canapa. Canapa, googling reveals, is a 60-30-10 cotton-cashmere-hemp blend, so I guess the overall jacket is 80% cotton, 15% cashmere, 5% hemp. You can definitely feel the cashmere and hemp in the blend; it gives the cotton a softer/smoother hand while simultaneously being a bit more open in feel. Very interesting fabric. EDIT: a bit more googling suggests that maybe canapa is actually just pure hemp; I'm not entirely sure. If so, it's interesting that it actually adds a bit of softness/smoothness to the blend (so much so that I believed my initial search result of it having cashmere in it). I expected it would add roughness, but it doesn't.
