    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    You're right, it isn't always shiny, but in the right light you can definitely see it. As a business suit it would at least be risky IMHO. I don't know the oyster book well, sorry.

    The depth of color in high quality mohair cloth (and at least 90%mohair) has no equal.

    Cellulare is a S.I.C. Tess shirting. Very open weave and therefore slightly transparent in my experience. Also apparently not recommended for the hirsute, as you will continue to sport your chest hair through the shirt.

    I hate to wade into this Ed and I understand the aspect of embellishing the fabric by giving it a fancy name but if he or anyone else enjoy their Sid Mashburn shirts, why would them being made in Turkey as opposed to Italy or USA or being called open weave or cellulare make you stop buying them :confused:


    Btw, price seem to be $ 175 instead of $ 200....

    :D

    I'm not interested in buying the Sid Mashburn shirt; I just get emails from them because I bought some EG Dovers from them once. I mostly wear pedestrian but very well-fitting MTM shirts made in New Jersey. I thought I was pretty familiar with shirting options, though, and had never heard of this one.

    My post was nothing more than a funny snarky comment directed towards Ed. If you click on my post you'll see. He cut Gianni Cerutti slack and didn't seem to see a real problem with inaccuracies in his definitions of what he sells, so I was trying to point out he should extend the same grace to the Sid Mashburn.

    I will go and check out Ed's twitter account now! :D

    I've have some Cellulare and it's the same stuff used for my father's sport shirts from the 30s.

    I've been looking for a windowpane fabric like this:

    I asked the OP about the fabric, but he didn't have any details about it.

    I know there are some windowpane offerings in Harrison's Moonbeam collections, but do any of you have some other suggestions?

    What about Harrison's Mirage? Wool/linen/silk, and there are a number of windowpanes offered.

    Less of a winter option, of course.

    Thanks for the tip, though I should have been more specific: I prefer 100% wool, preferably around 300 grams or so.

    BTW, I cannot find the Mirage collection on Harrison's website. Any idea where I can see some samples online? Other than the pics posted by terrorsquad, I couldn't seem to find any.

    Search for Merino Brothers Hong Kong's Facebook page. They have pretty much all of the Lesser/Harrisons books there.

    On mohair, anyone know of a proxy for Bateman & Ogden?

    honestly the fabric looks italian to me. not sure why all the suggestions are for english jacketings. i would think you would have better luck looking at the drapers, loro piana, zegna, caccioppoli, artison books.
