    Because it's unusual and generally unknown to the common suit-wearing man. The fact that #menswear icons like Barbera and Rubinacci have adopted it only further legitimizes it in the minds of the iGent.

    The fact that it is ugly and garish is, frankly, besides the point.

    Have you seen it worn (as opposed to a swatch or a photo)?

    1. Potentially open to a sport coat length of the Goldfinger barleycorn depending on cost.

    2. What ever happened to the project to try to get a run of (IIRC sand / light tan) flannel for odd trousers?

    I just think it is horribly ugly despite its rareness to the common suit wearing man. Wearing it because of that in the wild is just as affected as a lot of other bullshit people wear.

    You're assuming people like it for those reasons as oppose to just liking how it looks.

    I was commenting in reference to Grammaton.

    It is even silly in its proposed utility. Red fibers that reflect the sun? Please.

    i am not sure if that is a response to me, but if is, it doesn't answer what I asked.
