Shirts are possible in that time frame although you're cutting a lot of corners at that price. Good suits, not likely.
Get a blue blazer or sport jacket out of something nice. That way you can always wear it without advertising your RUBINACCI. That can be SB or DB. Either way, just make sure it's not too short for comfort. Let them take care of everything else: lapels, etc. That's their job, and they do it differently from anyone else you've dealt with. Ask questions, but don't assume that you're a better designer than they are. And don't screw around with fancy details. This thing...
The 10oz is coarse enough to look like flannel, and can do damage to the knees in hot weather. The 8-9oz is almost tropical consistency-- much cooler, finer and smoother, albeit less durable.
The lightweight Fresco is a totally different animal, for better or worse. That and the light Finmeresco are much less scratchy.
You want to get rid of it so you bought more? Fascinating.How do you measure success?

Instead of paying for it immediately and taking it to J Press for perfection, I let her fly it back and forth to Naples at least twice-- and now it's nowhere near as good. Probably fixable, though, if I get around to it.In each success, there was some building off a previous...
I wear both. Laces come to almost the same "V" on each, but the P2 is an easier fit all around.

SMLP seems to be recovering. The private fund that created it has been buying on the open market, figuring that a 13% yield that is growing and not terribly well connected to commodity pricing might be a good value. (Not so long ago, the market was willing to take something closer to 5%.) About 10 days ago, I had to raise some cash for taxes-- I sold Nestle (NSRGY) and put about 1/4 of the amount into SMLP, with the somewhat arbitrary goal of keeping the dividend income...
I.e., a little firmer and crustier than the Utah?
