I saw and felt one of the new Spring-Summer '05 poplin suits offered by Brooks. Oh my. Very, very nice. The difference between this model and models of years past? Cool Max. Are any of you familiar with Cool Max? The more athletically inclined probably are. Yes, it's synthetic, but it's unbelievably breathable. Runners, cyclists, and hikers wear Cool Max stuff, if that tells you anything. Incredibly light and breathable, sort of a man-made version of a 6 oz. cotton fabric.

Anyway, Brooks has combined cotton with Cool Max and, to repeat, the product is pleasing not only to the eyes, but to the touch. When I compare it with some of my old Corbin and Brooks poplin suits from days of yore--well, there's no comparison.

And yes, they're offering it in a 3 button sack. An odd yet consumer-friendly combination of old-fashioned styling and technology.

Cheers,
Harris
