The Elegant Man, (use the link for SF if you decide to purchase)

There is some interesting information in this book on materials and some interesting facts. I thought the section about people in the middle east use of wool garments to protect against the hot weather interesting.

There are some interesting articles on the durability of good cashmere but a great one on how to care for it :

Super wools are the cloth equivalent of digital audio They are insufficiently fogyish to match up with a good turntable.

I did. "For kicks: " - I posted the links for those that read the thread, so that they'd see that the discussions had already taken place. Searching "Controversy Over Super Wools" (the name of the article) != "Controversy Over Super Wool." Do people pay you for asinine commentary when you're dressing them as well?

Kronik you are one of the most obnoxious f*ktards on this forum. Please stop being belligerent to Will, whose posts are massively more informed, helpful and mature than your childlike combativeness. It's not his fault you can't do a simple search of the archives.

Some 150s are not well made but there are some that are terrific. My 180s Kitons are also doing fine so far.
We will just have to agree to disagree. I don't believe that they last.
