Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 1165

post #17461 of 19898
I think there was some recent talk about the Dugdale, which looks like an attractive solution to the problem. Some writers, though, said either that their particular pattern wasn't so hot (i.e., effective) or that they'd noticed performance differences between patterns. I have no idea how you'd sort out the latter part of that in advance, and it may be an urban legend anyway.

Compare to Fresco, it is more neutral for acceptance. Fresco maybe a bit extreme, some people love it, some people feel rough for the legs. But base on value, dugdale easily win over other brands for same league.

@911 _11.  You are right, I don't think Fresco wears cool in HKG summer.  I wear Fresco this week and find it quite comfortable.  A bit warm and humid weather.   

 

I have some Rangoon bought from Kolecho which were not made up yet.  I think they will be good.

 

Dugdale NFW difference from pattern.  From my experience only solid grey wears cooler than PoW. 

@hifillover it seems you are referring to bulk price of D.

@bamboo, probably, because i got them from my friend.

Sorry-- just to clarify, the Po'W patterns of the Dugdale wear coolest (b/c they are hopsacks, maybe?) and the greys are cooler than any other solid color in the book?

Sorry for not being clear enough.  I have blue POW and solid grey (mid grey).  I feel PoW more wooly and warmer than plain.  It is just how I feel it.

Thanks. Now I see what you meant.
post #17468 of 19898
My experience is similar to bamboo, the dark colour seems to have a different finish than the light colour. Also dark solid colours seem to attract dust easier.

You make a good point. But then...

Oh my bad-  nothing more useful than a cream  DB in Summer cloth.    :satisfied: 

 

However, found this:

Which means that nobody can see how awful your sweaty shirt looks. FTW.

Well, sadly, I also don't have Mr Barbera's apparently effortless air of style. I think this nailhead Rangoon does say "single breasted", in all honesty. That's the way I'll have it made up, eventually.

It will make a perfect single-breasted, although a DB will look ridiculously well-put-together. Just light enough in color to accommodate a whole range of bowties. Hmmm...

Oh, now you're just goading me!

And why not? We all know how practical you can be with your DB checked tweed!

I have no doubt that I will think of a witty comeback to this...several hours from now. :facepalm:
