Freezing winters and boiling summers. All the single breasted would have at least two patch pockets: Navy flannel double breasted Navy flannel single breasted Mid blue tweed single breasted Brown flannel single breasted Navy sharkskin Navy hopsack Mid blue hopsack Navy linen wool blend double breasted Brown linen wool blend Navy linen Light blue linen And probably something between midblue and navy in 2/2 twill with a brownish windowpane

I suspect it's that the points don't quite fall under the lapel. A very minor quibble given the excellence of the fit as a whole. For me, what really takes the cake about that fit is the white (silk) square. That's one of the few instances I've seen where a solid white, non-linen square works wonderfully.

Were it not pinstriped, this is a good look: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Regent-Fit-Two-Button-Linen-Stripe-Suit/MK00144,default,pd.html A thread you may find interesting: http://www.styleforum.net/t/286121/summer-linen-suit/0_20

I'm not a fan of the crotch blade, but I'll admit that the narrow end sometimes hangs lower than the wide on mine (particularly with 4IH knots and trousers with a higher rise). They are a sprezzy bunch--I suspect....and hope...that their father finds it all a little bit silly.

Went in for the forward fitting at B&Tailor today. What the elder brother was wearing would have qualified for this challenge.

How we build our wardrobes is as much a function of where we are in building it as it is what we want it to be. Starting out, it's best to build in broad strokes, so that as a person's taste in CM coalesces, most of those early purchases don't get eliminated from rotation. It doesn't always work, of course. I figured, perhaps incorrectly, that navy and navy ground ties could be worn with much of what I intended to purchase. As it turns out, I don't particularly like gray...
