"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."

It’s the attention to detail even when not visible that makes the difference. Very similar to Apple products versus the rest of the IT industry..
With the heat approaching, out comes the “seersucker” button down + infamous PG collar roll only achievable via bespoke option 😉

Solaro SoRaro reflects heat - Truth or Fiction?
Summer has finally arrived in Sydney, Australia & what better way to start than wearing a cotton “Solaro” suit.
It has been said that the weave was developed in such a way to reflect the suns bight - so far I have to agree.
Solaro cloth is recognisable by the fine herringbone weave, usually 2 colours (in this case khaki & plum). Solaro can be of cotton or wool. The wool variety is almost like gaberdine.
The hand (or feel) is quite special in that there is a certain heft yet soft to skin. The creases tend to also be soft not fine like normal cotton.
I’m looking forward to more cotton Solaro - maybe even a DB..
* note the shadows as the clouds move & then note that the tone of the suit changes ever so slightly, so hard to capture this..
