I take your point, but just to be accurate, are you referring to Huddersfield Cloth's Cool Wool range (which is rebranded Bateman Ogden Panache) or Dugdale's New Fine Worsted range?

I was referring to Dugdale's New Fine Wool Worsted as being unsuitable for Hong Kong post-Easter weather.

btw why do you think it's inappropriate for HK summer?

 

I live in UK mostly anyway, but I'm curious.

Kinda wish I'd known this before I ordered 5m of the chocolate herringbone shetland to make a suit.

Oh well.

5 = 2.5 x 2. Put a sport jacket in the bank. Either that, or have a very relaxed suit for the proverbial museum visits on Sunday.

Dude, were you born last night or at night? Send me half of it, I will turn it into a 3 patch sport coat.

Aaaaw, the light blue with windowpane (TW20) is just too nice. Such a shame it didn't move forward in the remake edition frown.gif

I'm not sure it's any easier to walk without bending your legs in a museum than out on the street.

But I'll also admit that I've never tried.

Anyone have 2.5 meters of the solid grey or solid light blue Harrison's anniversary tweed they want to part with? They are all sold out. Alternatively, leads on similar cloth would be highly appreciated.

I have both swatches and I find the one by Dugdale is too 'hairy' for the humid summer. Also it is slightly too ichy when worn with some sweat. I don't think it will keep me dry but rather stuffy and sweaty.

However, in UK this is probably a good summer cloth with the UK breezy summer wind.

I totally agree with this. My personal preference is the Lesser 8/9oz
