    possibly, but personally i prefer linen and cotton for summer wear.
    Hey, Could you link me to some other thread about how BB and JPress history, if not, do you mind explaining it?
    Secondly, where do you think i could get vintage clothing for a 5'8, size 42-44 long/ short? Is it always Ebay or Etsy?

    In summer you boil in it because of the tight weave (no air circulation), in winter you freeze because the fabric is too light. Quality wise 180s stand right next to polyester IMO.
    For summer go with what HBK said or open weaved wool like fresco. When you wear stuff like that you forget that you have your trousers on because the wind blows right through.

    Peruse the threads, buy the one you like and can feel confident that you'll get what you want.
    Do it ASAP so we can stimulate the discussion of how it looks.
