    An Innis Meain sweater and a pair of Edward Green Malverns in a color called Chameleon (which is a sort of brownish green).

    Those EGs I saw at the first trunk show and I loved the color.

    Post pics of the sweater when you get a moment!

    Here's the sweater:

    And just for fun, here are the shoes;

    In the natural light, I think this picture is reasonably close to the actual color of these shoes. Chameleon is a good name for it.

    If you are referring to my photo, yes, it's a linen sweater.

    I was in Khaki's today looking over the store and came across these beauties. Brand new from Edward Green, the "Portland" is buttery soft, unlined suede with a thin sole. More like a Belgium shoe than a classic EG, these are fantastic. They come in three colors.

    Those chocolate tassel loafers are beautiful. Do you remember pricing by chance?

    I didn't ask, but they indicated they were much less than their standard EG loafer. I would suggest giving them a ring or emailing them to find out.

    Jim showed these to me last week when I was there. They didn't move me, I have to say. But I can see the appeal--they were almost slipper-like.

    My issue with loafers have been they are always too narrow for me. Having it being unlined might be perfect as well as a tassel is perfect for when I wear a sportcoat and trouser. I already emailed Alvaro :hide:

    I've gotten a couple of emails about a summer sale. It doesn't appear that prices have been reduced online. Is the sale just in-store?
