We call him "Shithead."
Central air, and nudity.
And why not? We all know how practical you can be with your DB checked tweed!
It will make a perfect single-breasted, although a DB will look ridiculously well-put-together. Just light enough in color to accommodate a whole range of bowties. Hmmm...
Which means that nobody can see how awful your sweaty shirt looks. FTW.
Thanks. Now I see what you meant.
Sorry-- just to clarify, the Po'W patterns of the Dugdale wear coolest (b/c they are hopsacks, maybe?) and the greys are cooler than any other solid color in the book?
I think there was some recent talk about the Dugdale, which looks like an attractive solution to the problem. Some writers, though, said either that their particular pattern wasn't so hot (i.e., effective) or that they'd noticed performance differences between patterns. I have no idea how you'd sort out the latter part of that in advance, and it may be an urban legend anyway.
Much depends on how you experience heat and humidity. For real summer, I'd avoid any Fresco but the lightest. The 10oz and 15oz are pretty scratchy when your skin gets red. Same with Finmeresco-- the midweight is more for spring than summer, but the lightweight is nice, if not insanely durable. Piuma is more elegant than either, although might benefit from air conditioning to cope with the extra ounce of wool and slightly finer weave. I just got my first Piuma suit ...
