It is clearly visible at the ends of the sleeves, and was already hanging out the ends by half an inch or more, making it even more so.
I didn't think it would be that visible either.
The green gabardine must be more expensive for Aero to fit. I can understand why they'd want to discourage it. On my next order I'll probably hunt out something myself (W.Bill, London?), then post it up to Haggisland.
In fact, if anyone has any other ideas for a hard wearing, cool lining (not supplied by Aero), let's hear it.

Funny you should mention ventile. It's a rare fabric, even rarer in the USA I believe. I once had an olive green ventile smock. The fabric was quite thin and extremely smooth to the touch. The edges of the cuffs frayed quite quickly.
If Aero are willing to do it, I should think the Green Gab would be available now, as they again have the B10 on their website..... (which is giving me lunatic thoughts of the B15.... a few years ago they were selling off B15s at £130 odds. Didn't bu as at the time I preferred the B10. Changed my mind in recent years.... gah....).
If in doubt - overdress.
