I don't know about the rest of you, but I find that silk wears hot. Very insulating.

+1. The very reason cited by Dege when I first asked about silk linings.

Nice! I use Sex Panther and I'd love for the scent to linger in my clothes.

I have silk lining the sleeves of one of my suits. It is noticeably hotter to wear than the bemberg lined others. Wouldn't necessarily get it again, even though i like the stripes.

Asahi Kasei
Bembergâ„¢ is a trademark of ASAHI KASEI FIBERS CORPORATION in Japan and other countries.

Other countries are U.S. Mexico, Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong.

I always assumed bemberg was made in japan..

lesson learnt..

guess the two companies can't sell in each others registered trademarked countries.

Silk fights with a lot of jacket cloths and it is always better to use it for softer materials such as cashmere. Sometimes if the item will not be used as often like a dinner jacket, you can use silk there too. I wouldn't use plain colored silk for its own sake for many of the reasons mentioned above but I have employed matching silk scarves or patterned silk for a more elegant lining in a sports jacket or dinner jacket.

My suits and jackets have silk linings in plain colors. I have never noticed any of the problems mentioned in any of the above posts.

What type of silk did you use?

What about cotton satin for jacket linings? Is it any good? Better/worse than silk or bemberg?

(sorry to revive an old thread)

If that's what I think it is, it will be too heavy for most jackets.
