    I urge you to reconsider. Once you go linen in Summer you never go back.

    the ones you find on ebay had a very soft feel, if you are an Italian man this will be a great cloth .

    This was my first summer with a complement of linen suits and trousers; while I'll use fresco when something less casual is needed, linen is incredibly comfortable.

    Paid a visit to Smith & Co a few days ago. Unlike previous visits to W Bill - where I felt I was rummaging around a storage room - I was surprised at the relative activity at Dufours Place, both from Smith employees and other customers. Came away with 2 suitlengths of high-twist worsteds which will soon be on their way to Mina. SB 3-piece for the brown/black PoW, and a DB for the blue/grey windowpanes.
