Yesterday was was the season's first truly cool day and it called for a pair of moleskin trousers. The short, velvet-like nap on cotton moleskin traps air next to the body so in a 16 ounce/480 gram weight it wears warm.
They were worn with a tweed shirt-jacket over a flannelette shirt, a silk scarf, a tweed hat and tan Norwegian style bluchers.
Consistent with the change in temperature, two linen suits went into storage and were replaced by flannel in lighter weights. The weather is still too mild for the 15 ounce/450 gram stuff but cool enough for a 360 gram/12 ounce weave. Today's visit to tailor Peter Harvey in the City is likely to require it.
