1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    I second the Fresco Lite suggestion, but also thought I would mention the Holland and Sherry Mohair option. I think they are on the pricier side of things, but they look really nice. I also wanted to second the advice to have the suit cut slightly bigger since mohair doesnt have much give as I found with a tuxedo commission from several years ago. I can only wear it when I am fighting fit...

    Thanks, maybe denim isn't what I'm looking for. I want something casual and cotton, but less flat like khaki, something with a bit more verigation. Does khaki exist with a different warp than weft thread color similar to denim?

    Moleskin is always useful, if not so much for summer.

    Not exactly sure what you're going for with denim then khaki, but perhaps:

    Linen twill: https://jhannaltd.com/collections/specials/products/oat-twill
    Cotton twill: http://www.brisbanemoss.co.uk/shadecard.php?id=32#

    And you can pick up Japanese denim cut to whatever length you want on ebay if you really want some.
    From what I've sourced that way, it tends to be heavy which sounds like it's the opposite of what you're going for, if this is intended to be worn in warm weather. If you contact the sellers, maybe they have lightweight stuff too- at the time I was only interested in heavyweight denim.

    Good luck

    A heavier chambray perhaps? The attached are from Kuroki Japan, for example. ~8 Oz weight.

    Showing 3 options with 3 different types of weaves and how the shade can vary with type of washing done.
