    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    For summer in London the birdseye is probably light enough. The houndstooth is a bit more conservative than the POW, which might matter in London. But I'm a big fan of the POW.

    Hey Kyle are you able to layer a lot under the Leder greatcoat? Does it fit pretty snug?

    The trip to London is going to be just a leisure trip, so shopping, eating and sightseeing are what I'll be doing most of the time. The last time I was there (two summers ago) we were caught in an insane heatwave, so I'd rather be prepared for the weather this time around since I'll be there for an extended period of time. Maybe one odd jacket and two summer suits would fit the bill

    heatwave in London is far and between, for the 2yrs I was in London I never felt it been that hot (disclaimer I grow up in Taiwan where we can get 100F + insane humidity). Why do you need suit if it's leisure, I would just go with sports coat, though if you travel north it can get quite chilly in the night (lake region/Scottland)

    I want the suit(s) for more than just this upcoming trip to London as I don't have any summer weight suits at all (Drago might work as Six said above. It's fairly light and breathable, and I always seem to remember it being half lined instead of full so it must wear light), but it's the impetus that has me looking at summer weight suits in general.

    I think I'm going to go with the Fresco for a navy (at the very least, it'll work for the dog days of summer back home even if the Drago works for my purposes in London this summer), and wait on the upcoming cool breeze H&S PoW to make a decision on grey, like Greg said. Thanks all for your input!

    Seriously greg you have a great eye. I saw that swatch and thought "nice but I'm not sure". Seeing it made up, it's really impressive.

    Thanks! It came out really well. It's the perfect warm tone counterpart to the Caccioppoli from last summer, which was very blue/grey (cool colors)

    Oh my. That looks great. I don't know how I can choose between that and last summer's PoW.

    That new POW is killer. Eidos fits me better, unfortunately (because I love the Formosa fabrics).

    Great Coat sizing question: I'm on the slim side of US38 and size 4 in Schneider. Medium on great coat?

    Thanks!

    The new POW looks great. It's amazing what a difference the cream base makes.

    Has the Formosa windowpane come in yet? Looking forward to that!

    @clee1982 I measured my waist at 37.5" My size 33 has stretched to pretty much exactly that, maybe slightly more actually.

    Correct on both counts.

    No idea what the one sampled is called but I'm sure Antonio can identify
