    Here are some ideas for spring/summer. Please vote for ALL of the fabrics that you like. When there are two similar fabrics (like the two PoW or the two mini-tooth suits) please vote for one so we can see which is the favorite.

    There are a lot of options here but eventually, I will narrow down to 4-5 suits and 5 sport coats.

    What's washed canvas linen? is it different than normal linen?

    And what is the tonal difference between the blue mohair and the linen canvas? Looks like the linen canvas is lighter, and more teal?

    The canvas linen is very very different in feel and texture from a traditional Italian or Irish linen. It has a slightly washed out look, is very textured (almost like a small scale burlap) and very flexible (rather than marking creases like typical linen)

    The shades of the mohair and linen canvas are VERY close (that lighter-than-navy navy) but the linen is slightly more raw denim looking in color. No teal tinge, maybe a tad more indigo. The mohair has a very slight bit more sheen to it.

    Vote for your top 5 jackets and top 5 suits if it's too hard to vote yes or no :)

    I have to say for those who haven't handled the VBC Revenge Tropical cloth that it's magic stuff. You can crumple it in a ball and keep it tight in your hand for 20 seconds and there are no wrinkles at all. It deserves an infomercial with the Shamwow guy

    So, I'm still leaning "all of them" as my official pick, but, if I MUST lol:

    SCs
    1. Carnet merlot linen (any consideration of this for a suit?)
    2. Cacciopolli summer gun club
    3. Caccioppoli mohair (again, any thought as a suit?)
    4. Delfino gray/wine
    5. Drapers Green W/S/L (broken record alert: suit potential?)

    Suits

    1. Minnis Fresco
    2. Caccioppoli Wool/Silk (classic windowpane)
    3. Caccioppoli Wool/Silk (navy windowpane)
    4. Draper's light panama
    5. Tobacco linen

    You know that there's only one possible reply to this, right?
