    Never used it, not sure I like the look of it for some reason. What do you think?

    I haven't handled it but from photos it seems to have a slubby quality which I like.

    I want something light but still structured for a summer suit so this seemed ideal.

    Just not feeling it in person for some reason, I should just make something up and see how it is.

    I have seen mohair/wool blend for navy tuxedo, though it appear a bit too "casual" when you zoom in on it (no one will tell at any reasonable distance though).

    That's an interesting texture on that charcoal suit posted. Linen?

    Wow. Ive always thought it a marker of a good tailor; if you can make a man of extreme proportions look "normal" then you have what it takes. I'd hVe put this chap at 36-37 without a doubt.
