    I have a similar (already sold out) pattern from the Riviera bunch. You will enjoy it thoroughly.

    ^^ is the light weight an issue? The pattern is beautiful, just wish it had some more weight.

    On another note, can anyone recommend a linen weaver, who will do a custom design on a single width loom?

    I don't know a weaver but what kind of design do you have in mind?

    You can actually try Minnis or W.Bill. I know someone which has privately commissioned a few stuff from them.

    Was 95 and humid, but I was able to keep the jacket on much of the day...and once I was back in AC, very comfortable.

    NYR - looks great and thanks for sharing! I like how you got both the sun and shade in the shot showing off the color in a variety of ways. Glad to hear it wasn't sweltering today in the suit. Wear it well!
