After making up a brown fresco suit I have to agree with Mafoo. I find it neither fish nor foul and somewhat incongruous to wear in the summer given the reasons outlined above. Same goes for heavier weight fresco suits which I also have a few of and rarely wear as they were meant to be summer suits but wear too damn hot.
First shoe on the left and also one of Ecton on 888, Dover's cousin....
Nice cloth Matt...Bring on the 20oz tweeds!!
I think you're right about that...It's a days-gone-by thing at least based on what I've seen in London on my latest visits. It's probably also perpetuated by the fondness for boldness of many English RTW makers like Paul Smith, Bowtang and even Turnbull, to a certain extent.
Let me start with the disclaimer that just because the Italians or Brits do it, it doesn't make it in good taste. Good, glad that's out of the way! That said, my experience has been that Brits favor the bold, tweedy patterns for their odd jackets that are most relished on this board while Italians (particularly Milanese) favor much more subdued checks and plaids in smoother cloths paired with grey (often charcoal, perish the thought) trousers. I'm not sure one is better...
Many thanks!!
Am I misremembering or didn't people go ga-ga over a similar cloth from London Lounge that was used for odd jackets? Be kind if I am wrong, I just turned 50 and might be suffering the attending symptoms of my advanced years.
Hey. Gnatty...great to see you back. !
Agreed! Have them in a few colors including burgundy shell which is killer.
The cloths I went with can be used as a two piece or you can definitely wear the coat as a stand alone odd jacket and probably get away with the bottoms as odd trousers too.
