    I personally like and prefer them to be unlined, I feel like they wear warmer as well, especially flannel

    Having had both lined and unlined pants, I prefer the feel of worsted wool, flannel, linen, cotton on my legs over other materials. It's just more comfortable. I can imagine lining my pants if I am wearing a rustic tweedy suit which is really scratchy but I don't wear tweed suits.

    Bump!

    This is a lovely looking cloth and I really hope the second run gets made as I missed the first: just needs about 10 more people to subscribe. I see Vox has signed up for a second jacket's worth, and Matthew DeBoise is in for a length for himself.

    I'm tempted to get 2.5 meters to put away juuust in case anything ever happens to mine or if our second child (only a concept and not on the way yet!) is a boy then he can get that made up as his first LL jacket like this was for me.

    Looks fantastic, ROT. I've been considering orders from the LL linen too. Definitely in for the oats jacketing. The taupe, tabac, and mocha are all extremely alluring. What's your opinion of the tabac, having seen it in person? Have your ordering any of the shirting as well?

    The tabac is stunning, but lighter than you think. May well also get the Dove and the Mocha - the former for trousers, and the latter for a suit. Am also seriously considering the shirtings

    I've tried to register for London Lounge as I'm interested in some of their cloths, but have not been approved by an administrator after waiting two weeks. Does anyone know who I would contact?

    Can anyone recommend the quintessential mid-grey worsted wool for odd trousers? Prefer a heavier fabric as well, 14oz-17oz
