It's barley. Since you are in Bayern I assume it will be used in an excellent local beer, naturally in accordance with the Reinheitsgebot.
And the suit looks great.

Not sure what HIP stands for. SBCO aren't really a dedicated baroque orchestra, it's just a name. They are completely private, without government support or major benefactors - an extraordinary feat in China - and play whatever gigs they can get.
I didn't get the impression that "authentic performance practice" was much of a thing in China while I was there. Hopefully that's changing, if slowly.
Interesting. Given that there are plenty of baroque ensembles in Japan and they are also cropping up in Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore, I'm sure China will follow. Already many excellent classical musicians coming from China. What instrument do you play?
HIP = Historically Informed Performance. A more posh way of saying "period instruments" but it seems to have become the accepted term. Easier to tweet.
Lot's of comments about the background / "cornfield" etc, but hell, let's not forget what a great outfit this is!!
I think it looks fantastic. And the fit is great.
Markus, that's a linen suit right?
Another thumb from me for Markus' fit - both the photography and the clothes are superb. I like the way the horizon is perfectly aligned with his buttoning point!
@DiplomaticTies, I play the cello. Don't actually have a baroque setup, but I did perform all six Bach solo suites at a concert in Shanghai recently, on two modern Chinese-made instruments.
I'll mostly wear it open. Thanks. I definitely could have gone without the flower.
Good evening gentlemen,
Mid-grey POW suit. Wish the white collar on the shirt was more visible though as well as a lower button stance on the jacket. I am wearing braces as well under the waistcoat. Shoes are black derby boots. Propped my cell to take some photos with it's timer, so atleast it might be marginally better than my previous posts..Trousers need a good press as well..

With many thanks,
To a family reunion with my 4/2 roll jacket. That's right. Someone added a 4th button hole to this jacket. I need to have the sleeves shortened.

Never seen a 4/2 jacket before. I'd say you pull it off well sir!
