    As promised, my fire sale cloth thread is up - featuring Snowy River by H&S, JG Hardy Riviera, flannels by Hardy Amies, worsted heavyweight cashmere from Johnston's of Elgin, and a whole lot more...

    ...oh, there are linings too - Bembergs, Ermazine, shot satins - the nice stuff.

    Ed, I like all those hopsacks, but I think you should do the navy for the launch. It's the basic that everyone should have, even if they think they might want something "different."

    It's "ivory" -- notice the difference in colour when compared to the card.

    I like linen in an off white, here I am wearing one:

    Nice for the summer..

    Ivory /off white is a great colour for linen.

    And the trousers needn't be worn with the jacket. It's nice to have an ecru linen jacket to wear with denim or light blue chinos. The trousers can be worn by itself, with a linen shirt.

    Here's another pic of my unfunded liabilities, trousering lengths of blue and yellow cotton. The seersucker is for short pants or a short sleeve shirt.

    I live in a country in perpetual summer.
