    Hopsacks in a variety of contents. Did you see the 50/wool, 50/mohair hopsack? Very crisp but has more sheen on the finish.

    Chris - I believe you commented on this 10z wool-cash hopsack from the Mayfair book a couple years back when I got it.

    Just confirm, you don't think they're suitable for pants, correct?

    I met a girl who worked in Corporate for Armani and she said most of their fabrics they manufacture themselves. Rather vertically integrated company. I don't know how true that is, or if it still applies.

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone had any opinion or experience on something like this. I am considering having a jacket made for summer use, think 22-30 degrees and humid. I have other linen jackets which are great but I liked the idea of this because it could be more versatile. Don't get me wrong I embrace the wrinkles of linen, I'm just thinking of something wrinkle free here and overall a little smarter.

    The blend is 66% wool, 22% silk, 12% linen. 280g/m

    Anyone had something similar? Share any experience on breathability? That is my only real question I guess - how well it handles the heat compared to 100% linen.

    I am to assume it would be unlined too.

    Thanks :)

    I was looking at, I think, something from the same bunch, and I was steered away from it because the weave is not porous enough for humid weather.

    As someone who's living in a very humid tropical climate, I can confirm: weave is generally more important than material.
    That being said, I'd stay away from anything with a silk content. Don't know where it's got its reputation as a summer fabric from, in my experience it's no good at all.
    Nothing beats fresco if you want breathability and wrinkle free.
