I own a tan linen from Howard Yount but it isn't officewear for me. I don't mind some light wrinkling but it ends there. And the appeal of linen wrinkles isn't something that's caught fire in the financial industry. Working on it, though.

Well I'd be open to tropical wool too, just something lightweight and cool

Finally found tropical weight LP "Zelander Dream" at Turnbull and Asser and got a couple, but still surprised there weren't more options. Some NYC summer days call for maximum as shit airyness.

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.

You'd think some of these high end places would love to have things like that - to offer differentiation.

I looked through all of their website but if they still have some, it's not online. mad.gif

Any other possible sources for a cloth like this?

Marton Mills is another one for blazer or regatta stripes as they're called.

Isn't there a sand one in Fresco II ?
post #9882 of 10753
0549 oft referred to as sand, although oatmeal comes to mind

Question for those of you with some experience of heavier weight tweed cloths. I have an 18 ounce donegal tweed overcoat, and I find that it is not really warm enough to wear in the dead of winter.

Will a 23-25 ounce tweed overcoat wear that much warmer?

I'm looking to have made a tweed overcoat that can be worn for very cold days, but am wondering if 5-7 ounces heavier will wear that much warmer to make it worth it.

If you haven't already, you should consider wool lining. That will certainly make it warmer.
