It looks just like fresco to me.
Someone post a pic of the cream Rangoon please!
Its nothing like Fresco.
Some Rangoon pics as promised:
What is that herringbone peaking from underneath?
Details and pics?
Is rangoon just a lightweight worsted or does it have high-twist fibers like fresco? I've heard of the fabric, but never had a chance to see it
It's a book of pretty standard tropical weight patterns for business suits. No patterns or colors out of the ordinary, but very well executed especially if that's the texture you like.
So Will's got some Riva cotton-linen shirtings, and they are ridiculously expensive at almost $300 for cloth for one shirt. Nevertheless, any thoughts on their quality and longevity, especially compared to SIC Tess, which is cheaper and more available? I've seen shirts made from it a few years ago, but they were being worn, so I couldn't exactly go and feel it up.
Didn't foo's end up shredded pretty quickly?
I remember that but I don't remember if it was the cloth that died or the construction.
I have 3-4 Riva shirts (2 of which are cotton / linen). While the cloth is certainly nice, I never found it to be worth the significant upcharge vs. SIC Tess, G&R etc. $300 for just the cloth is very steep, and I wouldn't be tempted at half the price.
How do you figure $300 per shirt? Isn't it 3 yards at $50 per yard?
