OK, well, you got me I guess. Let's move on.
I've seen an entire length of the cloth, so I've got some idea of what it would look like done up as a jacket or suit. It's got a little bit of sheen to it when it moves around, but it's definitely not "shiny" or "disco". It is darker than the photo, but it's got some life to the color. Here's a photo of ethandesu's suit of the same fabric:
It comes off as darker than this photo in person, but this gives you some idea of the richness and variation of the color.
The silk blends are a good idea, but all the ones I saw were either too shiny or not shiny enough. I also like the vibrancy that comes from the lighter threads, as opposed to just shininess.
