Thank you! Bond villain is a look I could embrace.

 

The suit is made up from a Fox Brothers lightweight worsted flannel. At least, Fox calls it a flannel, but it doesn't really have a nap to it, so it's barely a flannel. It was in the "vintage bolt" section of Fox's website a few months ago. I bought it all and had this suit made up. It's somewhere around 7/8oz. Fully canvassed, fully lined. The trousers are lined, too, partly to help them drape properly, partly to add some opacity.

@VirgilVerne, the pants are too tight which is exacerbating the wrinkling

EDIT: I missed that you're in Sydney--so I guess forget the fresco suggestion. Maybe flannels?

Thanks for the suggestions, I've actually got all kinds of well fitting pants around but have been trying to get into the well-fitting chinos game, and as far as I know they're all cotton.

Perhaps, though due to my weird hip posture/curve the standard sizes (which aren't nearly as tight) can still get a lot of wrinkles, Think I'll try sending in some body measurements to try again with luxire

Haha! I suppose this might be a reason not to wear a cravat.

 

Personally, I wouldn't let it stop me. But then, I tend to wear a cravat about once a fortnight, and I'm wearing one today. I don't think I look like a bond villain in my current fit... :laugh:
