    Thank you, I've just cleaned it. It attracts dust like the dickens.

    +1. Until now, my only look at JG Hardy had been the Alsport line, which left a bad taste in my mouth on the utility front, since I don't ramble through the outback and need a thornproof, lead-like coat. But these lambswools are well executed. I would wear the green one.

    As for "citification," to hell with authenticity. Sometimes you want something informal and "tweedy" but still urbane enough for the city.

    I've got three lengths of Worsted Alsport to be made up, first one going to the tailor in two weeks. I also agree with Manton on the Riviera. I have the fawn gun club, which is great. They also had a wonderful blue gun club in that bunch, but they discontinued it before I could order a length. I'd be happy to take it off anyone's hands.

    A member here informs me that the London Lounge shetland houndstooth subscription is not closed as I thought, but is still taking orders. I had no idea.
    Acting on that advice, I am letting my 2.5m go for below the 100GBP/m sticker price rather than attempting to reclaw the whole value [​IMG].
    PM with reasonable offers, thanks.

    Edit: I'll make a proper sales thread if the need arises.

    Someone should jump on that. I would if I didn't already have it.
