    Vicuna is significantly softer - it's very light and if you close your eyes and hold it it feels like cotton wool.

    This is one great big world of pleasure right here. Love it all. How do you come up with these ensembles?! May I ask where your trousers are from?

    Thanks. I come up with these ensembles through trial and error and a lot of practice over the past four years. The pants are from Uniqlo.

    Probably a n00b question, but how does one describe the weave of this fabric? I've been looking for a light to mid gray fabric like this for a suit. I thought it was nailhead (some of the pics I've seen describe it as such), but what I've gotten has been much less "streaky" and more 50/50 (white & black).

    I can't zoom in right now but it looks like a mid grey fresco. Don't look like nailhead on my phone.

    I think this is one of those rare occasions where a white shirt would work much better...
    I'm not a fan of yellow ties and white shirts. Shirt is slightly lighter in colour than the pics suggest.
