Come on... look at the pictures !
I knew most of it, but it was still interesting to watch. The best line out of that was at the end when he said something about the price should be whatever the consumer is willing to pay.
The cloth is only see-through if you pick the wrong kind of weave.
Yep, the same kind of weave that makes it wear cooler.
Yeah, I guess. All I know is that one of my coats has unlined sleeves, and it's neither see-through nor very hot.
I was starting to second-guess myself for getting the sleeves of my fresco suit lined, as someone here mentioned they never did as it would kinda defeat the purpose of geting fresco in the first place. But now I'm glad I did.
It has been my uncommon good fortune that I have always evaded the paparazzi and Men's wear bloggers. I once had a chance encounter with The Sartorialist but fortunately Nick Wooster was there to draw the fire. About a year ago, Bill Cunningham asked me to move because I was getting in the way of his shot. I doubt pictures of me wearing see through sleeves would ever be taken.

Ah, but will you be able to avoid a mirror? That is the question.
no need to be sorry. you should probably email him and let him know.
I get my sleeves lined in emerzine.
Yes this is true, I once wore my unlined summer wool jacket on a particularly cold flight and the back was a little bunched and wrinkled. It might be important to say I also have my jackets made a little short as I'm not very tall (5'6"/168cm) and I find it looks better. But this also means there is less material hanging low in the seat area when you sit with your jacket on.
I believe the issue is only evident during flash photography. A mirror should be safe.
No way that this is only visible through flash photo. If wearing a light colored shirt (which I assume will be the case), you will clearly see it through the sleeves open weave because it's in direct contact at all times. It may not look exactly like those pictures but it will look either like a strange sheen in low light, or a contrast (like those pics) in direct natural/artificial light. I know, I've been there - it is very noticeable. Of course, if you do this for a light colored suit (e.g. light grey), it won't be as much of an issue. Anyhow... you've been warned
Only giving you a hard time. I would be curious to know how it works out though. And if the shirt showing through truly is limited to intensified lighting. Though my assumption is that it will be noticeable at all times (in varying degrees).
