    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    From your experience, how badly will a new 50% linen, 50% wool suit show previous seam lines if the seat is being let out at the tailor?

    Thanks for any and all replies. I've spent several days googling, and the topic is apparently non-existent. I've read quite a bit about the dangers of cotton suits, though.

    Linen and silk will sometimes Grain.. at the seams
    that means the threads pull apart.

    if the seams have pulled, it is doubtful they will return to normal
