The Hardy Riviera Collection includes "a range of plain fabric for trousers. "100% Pure New Cool." Plain weave. Very dry, crisp hand. 250 gm, I think. Impressive variety of solids, including a nice medium grey (#7521) and light grey (#7561). Also a nice light tan and a khaki/taupe.

Recalling the (perfectly understandable) grief felt over the loss of Minnis "Rangoon," I am wondering if this cloth isn't identical to the much beloved Rangoon. No nonsense, hard-wearing Panama/tropical wool suiting.

They are not featured on the Huddersfield Fine Worsteds website.

I am wondering if anyone has any seen/felt this cloth, or had anything made up with it.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
