Highs today in the upper 90s. Almost zero wind. I know, I know, the old refrain: "Stop complaining. You'd be hot if you wore linen shorts and a t-shirt. Don't sacrifice the (sacred) drape!"

It's days like today I'd like to pen a friendly letter to Antich.

Please weave a super 90s (or even 100's) high twist plain weave worsted that's actually porous.
A (very) open weave. Similar to Minnis Fresco 0500, but a 7 oz. weight. I don't care what it's called.

Too many tropical worsteds aren't terribly open weaved/porous. Example: Harrisons Mystique.

Does such a cloth (already) exist?

Otherwise I might just have fake pockets with no actual pocket in them. 

 

I have ivory or cream colored trousers made up from several Fox flannels. Only the very lightest, no longer available, needed to be lined for transparency reasons. That was a 7oz worsted flannel, barely a flannel at all, really. I have a cream pair in the Queen's Award flannel, standard half-lined to the knee, no issues; and a pair of the 290gm worsted flannel in Fox's classic cricket white color. No transparency at all.

 

Don't get fake rear pockets. Don't get rear pockets at all. They are useless and I don't see the point in cutting a slit in the back of your trousers only to then button it back up. Seems silly.

It's already cut that way before I realize the see through issue.

The silk linen is even better. Gorgeous. I'm sure someone with a better camera than I (on my iPhone) will take a good picture.

Someone actually just sent me this photo of their silk/ linen order. I haven't received mine yet, but I think it turned out really well.

Indeed it did! Is the photo of the Fresco accurate in terms of colours? To me it seems quite grey compared to the test, but it might be my monitor...

Color in the photo is a bit more grey than the fabric in real life. The silk/ linen photo is a bit more yellow as well.

I'll try to post some color-accurate photos this weekend when I get a chance.

I got my silk/linen too. It looks lovely - really characterful and slubby.

Gonna get Elia Caliendo to make it up as a suit for next summer.

There isn't leftover from the silk linen is there? =[

post #18404 of 19896

I got my tracking number for the silk/linen this morning! And the Fresco is already at Steed. Great job, Derek!

I received the silk / linen, and it looks amazing! Thanks to dw for leading the charge on this.
