The new Solito stuff looks wonderful, Manton. Thanks for posting it. I really like that combo above too. FWIW, here's a pic of a fresco suit w/ off-white sleeve lining shimmering through. A darker lining would have been better:

I don't see a problem at all. Lining the sleeves is defeating of the purpose of using fresco in the first place.
