    No, they're not :( I missed out on them this past S/S myself.

    Just a heads up, everyone: Gary (aka @Drinkwaters) is away this week, so if anyone has reached out to him via PM or e-mail and hasn't yet received a reply, that should explain why. I'll be happy to help out until he returns on Friday.

    The dolphin print is so charming. It's nice to see something inspired by surfing that isn't kind of lame. I really want an EG suit.

    You should get on the Khaki Iridescent Andover stuff and whatever matching pants they have (assuming it's similar to a few seasons ago) which would seem to fit pretty nicely in the alley of your T E F stuff. That said, I haven't seen the fabric from this season, just something to keep an eye out for

    The Khaki iridescent is amazing, but for some reason that thing fit really small. Like size up small.

    So does the color change a bit on that iridescent fabric?

    That might be too flashy for me [​IMG]

    Can anyone comment on the fit difference between the Ghurka short and the Cinch short? Some of the details are obvious (such as the clasps on the cinch and the front pocket on the ghurka), but I'm curious about the rise, length, taper, and overall fit of each.

    @CSCoHammers7 do you know if there's an olive jacket (bedford or andover or the like) to "match" the olive high count twill willy post pants? loving the idea of a full olive "suit!"

    cheers!

    I have the Andover Jacket and Cinch Pant suit in Tropical Wool acquired and started wearing in 2015 (Southern Hemisphere summer) and it's an incredible fabric that is light and very comfortable (fabric breathes well). Much lighter in weight than cotton and does not wrinkle anywhere near as easily as linen (or cotton even).

    Cycling with a suit (or suit pants)... As much as possible I prefer to avoid sweating in dressier items of clothing to be honest.

    I also own the linen Truman Suit from SS14 in Ecru Linen and it's a completely different look and feel (fabric wise) and unfortunately for me, too casual for the corporate office for me to wear very often.

    I dry clean suit pants every 3-5 wears depending on use and wrinkling. Jackets get a dry clean maybe twice a year and if needed outside of that, just a press to remove any wrinkling.


    This! Most definitely.

    Sydney winters are not that cold in general, and I'm looking forward to the cold season this year to try and layer up with the Tropical Wool but because the fabric breathes so effectively, a cold wind would most likely cut right through! Will wait and see...
