    You guys are incredible and crazy.

    I invite you to come to Hong Kong for spring break.

    On a different note, I have hardly seen RTW makers use fresco/finmeresco/crispaire. Mohair yes, but not fresco.

    I've worked there two summers already and visit regularly during the calendar New Year. You guys must be much cooler than I [​IMG]

    Well, I guess it might be okay in the cooler months. But ehhhhhhhhh

    I remember taking very complicated walks through all the indoor overhead paths in Central to avoid ever stepping out of air conditioning for more than 2 minutes.

    When do you intend to wear your 15oz fresco?

    A linen fresco! That's a rare breed. As fresco is a trade mark of one company only (and that company, to the limited extent of my knowledge, produced no fresco in linen), so I assume the name of the fabric is a description of the weave of the linen then a fresco-linen blend?

    Yes very rare - Yes, the fabric describes the weave of the linen. The original name is in Japanese, so I adapted a name for it [​IMG]

    Out here, fresco is a almost 3-season fabric.

    Does this include your summers or your winters?

    I've just ordered 280-310 g. fresco in wheat for an unlined suit.

    It will be SB 3 roll to 2 buttons, patch pockets.
    Trousers with turn ups and and two pleats. I will share photos one the suit is finished.
