          clean and sober 3 years now.  I agree that u need maybe 6-10 well chosen shoes.  Less is more... but I know that doesn't help when your in a shoe frenzy J-Frat
 IMO the trick is to go for as little lining as possible in the heat.  Fresco's coolness depends on air flow, and lining is obstructive.   I'm not a particularly hairy guy and  don't find it scratchy once it's worn in.  In fact, I find it comfortable.  For a hot weather suit in Fresco I'd also give some thought to wearing both sleeves and cuffs on the shorter side.  A bit more sleeve/sock exposed - I'm talking at most 2 cm here  -  helps with air circulation and is fine...
 Knit ties are more casual and rustic than ordinary ties, and though Bond wore his with formal city suits they’re more appropriate with tweed and the like. I wear silk knits with suits too.  With a navy suit I'd go with a different color than black-  not enough contrast.   Just terrific, as always.    So it's true!   AAS is your stylist?  [[SPOILER]]
there's Russian calf and the  Russian calf from the sunken Danish brigantine, the Metta Catherina.  The former is a hatch grain style that's been around for decades, long before the rediscovery of the brig.    They're both legit.
  J-Frat for a derby I'd go for their blind split-toe with the pie-crust apron  (1st pic)  It's a sublime shoe.  I see you don't have any Norwegers -  think the EG Dover   -  in your collection.    ..  and u may enjoy a plain captoe oxford.  A bit like pic 2, but without the brogueing.  You've got variety, but IMO u could go for nicely finished shoes - EG, G&G or Lobb -  or if you're a construction purist go for more Vass.   Avoid black-  IMO u need one sleek pair of...
Is that thing bowing at the lapels?   Otherwise -  all i can suggest is that you delay gratification and place an order that fits even better for something similar with P Johnson or BnTailor
 was thinking exactly that-  a black repp or grenadinemebe I knew that subconsciously.  Perhpas the 2 not 3/2 config threw me off too. Edit:  it is  a 3 roll. can see it now on diff screen.    Rumply fresco + silk knit.  The shirt is a very lite blue.   [[SPOILER]]
   My first reaction was 'nice' but as I looked down I had a sense of disappoint at the trews.  I think the semi-cutaway raised my expectation that this'd be a suit.    great individual pieces. Not sure about the navy + black silk knit on white.  If there's a rational explanation I'd guess it's because the black silk knit is too casual for an otherwise quite formal combo.
    speaking of Kamakura, they've got a beautiful biz-style cotton/cashmere shirt in a fawn (light brown/tan)  color.  French placket.  And a light lime green herringbone too.  I'm tempted-  think I can make the green work with say grey suit, but any thoughts on the fawn  Fawn .. huh.   What is it good for?
  dandy enough Cox?
