    Thanks. It's an extremely lightweight, soft wool and is 1/4 lined. It wasn't made for me, but luckily the previous owner was nearly exactly my size and had spectacular tastes -- I also got this 100% cashmere Hickey SC of his at the same thrift store. [​IMG]

    Not precisely a transitional season SC, but certainly in that spirit . . .

    Thanks to the SFers who gave me advice on how to wear this sportcoat, I hope it's ready for the bigtime. Based on my research, this is not tweed; it is a wool/cashmere blend. With the scarf, this fit gets me from about 40 degrees to 65 degrees comfortably. Antigone the cat is very interested in my new camera.

    Thank you.

    Today's tie came from Paul Stuart, many years ago, but I believe that they have some large-scale paisleys available this season - check the website.

    for this challenge, i have decided to use my fit from yesterday.

    suit is wool, light enough for spring/summer but warm enough for the chill that remains in the air from winter. the tie and shoe colors definitely hark back to fall, but together with a crisp white shirt and PS, they are just bright enough to usher in spring i think.

    :)

    Despite we are in autumn it's still still quite warm in Sydney, wearing a light weight wool jacket, fabric from H Lesser X Barbera.

    What's the material? Looks like linen, but is it a blend?

    Sports coat is 100% wool but the weave is fresco and so it´s good to use when the temperatures getting higher.

    A little something for the "matchy matchy" contingency to bitch about: matching tie, cufflinks a n d coat lining - oh dear :bigstar:
