Very good. I shall stock up before the fearful mobs descend on it. Empty shelves everywhere!

Featherweight, no durability, runs hot, and costs $450/m. How could you lose?
Spotted 2 silk jackets from Cavour that are on site-wide 30%off sale at $480 a jacket.

Please could someone talk me out of copping one of them?

One of them is a navy tonal oversized PoW in pure silk

The other is a smaller light-brown PoW pure silk.

I’m eyeing one of them along with the 2 below:

Navy mock leno

And an oatmeal wool-linen hopsack.

Do silk jackets stink after wash as I heard? (I can relate to that since it’s protein)

Cheers,

Yeh just in case it does need to be washed (which looks inevitable at least across its lifespan), but good to know.

Btw you’re certainly not helping to stop me spending on those by saying that ;)

Not yet. My inner pessimist is waiting for the world to get more fucked...perhaps go stock up. I spent more this week on food and supplies then I have in three months

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
