    I love Bill Nighy. I did notice he wore single vented jackets in the Worricker movies and wondered about that. Double would suit him better, but he seems to have an admirable grasp of what he likes and what he's comfortable in.

    He might not trust you clag:

    "I don't go on holiday, probably because I don't have anything to wear. I have a phobia of linen. You can never trust a man in a linen suit."

    right here, right now
    Love the article! I once owned only dark blue exclusively. Finally bought a few grey just to break it up, but still prefer navy. Now I'm into all navy blazers of varying weight, cloth. So, I definitely know where he is coming from! :nodding:

    All my linen suits are at least 50% wool, so that should take me from untrustworthy to roguish

    I always called linen suits as 'Chino tops'.
