    Despos seems like concrete evidence to me re Ronny R. Just for my sanity I will ask to see the letter in September when i visit if I remember. Yes Rangoon didn't seem top shelf enough for a US President. Was holding a piece of Riviera 7525 today in my workroom and the opinion stands a lot of give across the piece and I think you said it, when you described it as not lux.Still as said before can't complain about the price. Something like the old Scabal Tempo would have been around the same price when Riviera was current and would travel better with a dry handle and an extra twist in the yarn. I find the Riviera quite spongy. Still each to their own. Thanks for the info, I am now curious about what I saw re letter
    go well
    Brendon.

    Nice! I like the two Donegals. Malloy or W. Bill? That Navy Herringbone is Moonbeam, right? I have a sportcoat made of that and love it. Be sure to get veeeerrry minimal padding on it for uber softness.

    Badsha,I don't have any of those made up yet but navy herringbone looks very nice. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a navy herringbone. I plan to get it made up with two hip patch pockets.
