I'm short and the inventory tag said they only needed 2.4 meters of cloth, so there may be enough tweed leftover for another coat . . .

Though, it looks like Luca might have taken it.

Anyone care to comment on their experience with rubi's house hopsack? Do you prefer it lined or unlined?
post #4173 of 4251
Hey, just saw your PM. My hopsack is lined, but it is the 13 oz. winter variety. Even if unlined, you could not see through it. That might not be true of the warm weather version.

You can certainly see through my 9 oz. Woodhouse fresco--but I don't care.

Its all good, thought I'd get opinions from anyone and everyone who's tried it, I remember coolpapa getting it in grey, wonder if that was the summer version

I have a suit in mid-grey and a navy blazer, both in summer weight, both fully lined. The lining is. Non issue for me as far as comfort/coolness.

Me either, never had a issue with my being too hot because of the lining.

R mostly uses silk, right? I had that once and I couldn't stand it; way too hot. Bemberg I don't notice at any weight.
post #4179 of 4251
I believe the silk they tend to use with their summer hopsack is just to prevent see through, it is as flimsy as it gets

I'm with Manton on this - made the mistake of getting a Rangoon coat silk-lined, and it was quite uncomfortable in the summer.

 

I still get all my 13oz.+ suits / coats silk lined though.

I cannot believe this thread is nearly 5 years old...pretty cool.

Perfection in wool and silk. Smith's steadfast in a light gray sharkskin.

do you know the fabrics numbers? I have some swatches from smith of their sharkskin but look either lighter or darker then yours, and I was after roughly this tone of grey or just slightly lighter

whnay., I always like your fabric selections. Even the linings always seem to be a nice touch. Thanks for sharing.
