I would like to know if somebody in this thread has experience with the Cheaney "200 last" in terms of fitting, particularly with the Dorking II Penny loafer. They are built with a "coaching calf leather" and I wonder if that is a rectified kind of leather, that I might avoid as a possible deal-breaker.

I don't have many pics of my Cordings 3b blazer, but i like the lapels, not too big, and no big flare at the waist (even when the jacket is buttoned.
The Shetland is lovely. I know @cerneabbas has got one too, and i think @Botolph.

@Mercurio i don't know about those loafers, but i am always rather impressed with the quality of the leather of Cheaney shoes.

Never went for one of those— I don’t like the peak lapels on such a casual jacket, but to each his own(I got married in a peak lapel blue blazer so go figure). I dig a lot of EG’s stuff though, especially their collaboration with Barbour(the Warby overhead smock is great) and their Workday line.

A very "Here & Now" item, direct from Japan (but i think they are now available in Europe and USA too)

Uniqlo Airism Face masks. They are washable, but have an inner material supposed to offer an excellent protection.

Sold out here in large black....
I need to get something more breatheable.
Actually those are the first breathable washable ones that I try.
I still prefer the disposable ones though.

Been looking on Etsy... there are some dealers selling linen masks. Seems to be on of the most breathable fabrics for masks. When wearing a mask for more than a half hour or so, although it isn’t hypercapnia, my lungs feel like they’re being filled with clay. I cough up mucus, etc., for a good hour afterwards.
I’ve found that these linen masks allow enough airflow without letting the dreaded “droplets” escape.
