    A Golden Bale cloth would have been my recommendation, too. If you could find such a thing, a vintage length would be just about as good as you could possibly get in the 13-16oz range, I think.

    I would prefer that to the oppressive humidity and mugginess of a summer drizzle day in London. It's too wet to remove a jacket, and any effort at all produces a sticky sweatiness. I hate those days. At least if it's cold and wet, the English have developed good solutions.

    How about Rules, in Covent Garden? Oldest restaurant in London and open until midnight.

    The humidity in the UK is amazing. The split between cool and warm is about 60F, as opposed to 70ish on much of the East Coast and 80 in the desert. Now that we're finally in the 50s all day, I don't have to worry too much about soaking shirts when wearing tweed.

    It's the damp that makes the Winters so miserable. Even in my early twenties I had rheumatism in my right elbow. Since I moved to Floria and then to California, I have almost never had a problem with it.

    Yes-- but a different kind of miserable. You get to keep your jacket on.
