Looks decent that for the price.
I got a similar navy seersucker from J Crew and added the third button. Very happy with it. Pics below. Since J. Crew are in dire straits right now they may be knocking their prices down.

Edit - just took a look and they have them for $90 in pink, grey and tan.

Hasn't lowered my expectations, Rod. The next guy that ends up in there is going to have a helluva mess to clean up...And hopefully the current "resident" ends up behind bars.

Mmmm , from what l am hearing you are more likely to see the previous resident go to prison than the current resident . .

Oh please Simon. don't tell me you're buying some half baked conspiracy from the guy who's told a documented 18,000 lies and recommends vaping Lysol...
Better get back on track, now about laundering tips for Smedleys....

What does that mean?

Which part are you unclear about, Simon?
Didn't mean to get all "Political", I was on a news forum earlier so I was kind of "wound up"...

What is your definition of half baked conspiracy , Mike?

As far as washing of fine merino goes , I wouldn't use fabric softner on them either as , it will coat the merino fibres and reduce merino's natural ability to deal with odours . There is also a thing you can buy called a sweater comb , which will safely remove any bobbles that appear on your garment. .

No, I'm not a fan of fabric softener in general. actually is not good for the dryer components.

"half baked conspiracy": If I'm following you correctly Simon, you're saying that former Pres. Obama has done something "criminal". So if you're referring to what trump is calling "Obamagate" (his shadowy reference to some untold crimes that Obama was involved in, yet trump can't name), that's what I'm calling a 1/2 baked conspiracy. Actually more like a uncooked conspiracy that was taken out of the cooler, and left standing in the sun for a week...

I don't need to Google it, I can see it clearly on my johnson's baby shampoo, good for tootal scarves too, might work on garage floors but I'm not going to try. 😂

Lol , l meant if you google it you will find that garage floor cleaner shouldn't be applied to your skin , never mind  a babies but...............................................................whatever steers yer boat l'm only trying to be helpful ( I ceratinly wouldn't put the s**t on my Smedley's either. .
johnson's baby shampoo, has been around since the 50's so I'm sure they would've gone out of business by now if it wasn't safe.  Hints an tips been discussed on this and the old forums, when it had tailor's and bespoke tailored posts. Anyway time for ☕

I doubt even he knew what he was talking about never mind us speculating what was going on in his addled mind. It was just the usual uninformed stream of consciousness babbling coming from him that has been so frequent it’s become a new normal and sets the bar ever lower on what our expectations of leadership have become from the White House.

Do they have ‘woolite’ where you are Mike?
I’m no expert on the corrosive nature of various surfactants but they tout that as being gentle on the woollens. It still has SLS but is pH balanced so no alkali effects. I think woolite also used to do a special detergent for black gear to avoid it fading. No idea if that was just snake oil or if it really worked. I used it for a while back when I had a load of black gear in my wardrobe without really noticing if it worked well but I don’t have much black any more so never bother with it these days. .

Yeah Rod, I use Woolite all the time, both the one for darks and regular. The Dark Woolite I use for socks and jeans, greys,... it seems to keep the jeans from fading.
I'm usually very careful about my wool items, I guess I wasn't thinking when I tossed the Smedley into the wash.
Anyway, found a useful youtube vid on repairing small holes in knits at least!
