    -3°, snow and slush, and a bad migraine precludes me from this challenge [​IMG] Absolutely loving the entries so far though. Very well done gentlemen!

    Why don't you just cheat like some of the other guys and wear a linen PS? Though that really should have been a no-go for the challenge.

    P,what is the fabric of the jacket? Is it RTW or custom?

    I think that's a cotton Chan if i'm not mistaken.

    It was so hot in Cali today...I barely had my jacket on at work.
    Do linen suits run cooler?

    Well, I unfortunately called the challenge when it was +8 here... so it turned into "use what linen you can given your weather"...

    I would have loved to participate, but was bed-ridden all day.

    Some absolutely fantastic (and some.... [​IMG]) entries though! Can't wait to see the summary!

    The work fit looks fine, if a bit predictable in some ways, but I really like the casual look; great shape & fit on that jacket.

    Congratulations on your well deserved recognition! This is a great photo of you.


    Congratulations, NYR! Your classes sound terrific, and thank goodness some people still recognize excellence. And good tailoring.

    I should have congratulated NYR on his award - great job, RG!
    !


    Thanks guys.

    Little Late for the Linen Challenge, but here would have been my entry:

    Looks all wrong to me ^^

    Warm enough for white linen and bucks but cold enough for a hat and scarf?
    A murse and a handbag?
    Less is more!

    I understand your point, but I disagree. Thats the epitome of Spring. Cooler mornings (sometimes cold) and warm afternoons. This morning was about 45 on the walk to work, and then close to 65 on my walk home. The scarf was a spring scarf, very lightweight, and the hat was a linen one. This isn't the first time the critique has come up in the thread, and I'm curious why the thought is there? If you go to work in an overcoat, and then carry in home in hand in the afternoon, isn't that the same principal? No one says anything about that. Is it simply regarding fabrics that this sentiment applies to? The bag was my wife's, I was carrying it for her as she had a shoulder bag as well...just forgot I had it for the picture...
