    I don't actually like wearing cotton jackets or suits. They always feel warmer than they should, and they rumple weirdly. If I want something lightweight & casual-looking, I greatly prefer linen; if I want something lightweight & smarter, I much prefer lightweight wool. So I only have one jacket that might qualify for this contest, which coincidentally enough, I wore today. Technically it's a 50/50 cotton/hemp blend, but as it's the closest to a cotton jacket that I have in my wardrobe, I hope it slides in under the entry criteria:

    No sweat. I'll do it for you, since this draws on lots of Spoo-spiration. [​IMG]

    Thanks, S!

    I figured it was time to start doing a bit since I've been building up my wardrobe of late.
