Not sure about the knitted potholder in the pocket...
Essential! You're sauteing your garlic, not minding your skillet, and this is the only thing that can save your ***!Me, either.
But his granddaughter made it for him at pre-school. He HAS to wear it.
Isn't this cloth best described as a basket-weave?OK, I know it could likely be called hopsack, and probably is, but the yarn definitely has a tweed-like character, so I'm going to call it summer tweed as it looks to have linen as a significant constituent. But what a magnificent suit it has been made into! 😍

If you're referring to the DB suit I posted, I think it most definitely has linen as a constituent fiber of the yarn. Could be linen and silk, or linen, wool and silk. Such blends have been marketed as "summer tweeds" for some time, though technically, I don't believe they are tweeds. Definitely a hopsack, but with a tweedy feel.The pattern is tweed-like but I wonder whether they are in fact tweed. They look more like a linen blend to me.
He's not. The quoted material is from me.If you're referring to the DB suit I posted, etc.
You could be right, especially as the arm in pic #2 is holding wrinkles while at rest.The pattern is tweed-like but I wonder whether they are in fact tweed. They look more like a linen blend to me.
