    I have a half-lined sportcoat in linen that's technically a SS piece but the linen is so heavy I can wear the thing year round no problem. Looks like NN's is a similar weight.

    yeah as i mentioned before, linen is great for breathability but the weave really changes its properties.


    it's like you can have cotton woven as seersucker, or as a brushed flannel or corduroy. there's gonna be a huge difference in its properties.

    yoooneecrow slim straight selvage for bum days. really really happy with the fit+slight stretch, they're super comfortable. I also think it'll be really nice to have a pair of blue jeans that isn't skin-tight in the thigh.

    Ah, nostalgia...they remind me of the way I used to dress, back when everything was so simple....

    Not on board with either. I don't think a boot as chunky as the left should be a wingtip and the right is just terrible execution of an interesting idea.

    I thought it was a wool blend until I looked at the fabric tag, never felt anything linen like it. The weight of it is heavier than many of my wool coats

    Okay, I have to ask, do you have t-rex arms? You always do that claw thing with your hands and your sleeves are too long in most of your pieces
    Regular arms.. the only pieces I h ave with long sleeves are this, and two pieces which have purposefully long sleeves, a wjk shirt and Rick jacket. Still gotta get the Rick tailored, agree it looks comical with long arms This is an overcoat so I want the sleeves past my cuffs, might make a bit more sense in context: [​IMG]
