Didn't see anything like fresco anywhere, maybe it's super uncommon in RTW...
Fresco is fairly uncommon in RTW. Part of that is doubtlessly that it's a somewhat rough / not very soft cloth. Since most buyers have been (mis-)conditioned to regard softness as a proxy for quality, it kinda makes sense.
The 8/9oz fresco can be a bit translucent in bright light. Usually not a problem but you never know.
