Bordeaux very good as well, but just needs sooooo much time. I can drink Village Burgundy and Rhones like St. Joseph and Crozes Hermitage young. Bordeaux just needs so much time for me that I hardly ever touch it before 25 years.
You mean in terms of fabrics being interchangeable? Many fabrics can be used for both suiting and jacketing as far as material goes. Some things - such as Shetlands or loose open weave tweeds - are not ideal for suiting as the trousers can start to sag and look after a while. I am going by hearsay, but that seems to make sense. Of course, many fabrics just "look" like they should be either for a jacket or a suit.
This is a great example of why you can never judge a garment by a single photograph. Such subtle differences in each. Both great, yet different. Remember guys, it's not the garment itself, but how it's worn.
