Thanks for the all the advice: -The pic I posted is a bit shiny but it was shown more for the color than the shininess, otherwise I would check out Dormieul. -I'm not a huge PoW fan, I like it best in flannel, so the LL PoW Brisa also isn't ideal. -I will see if NSM carries the other books mentioned next time they're in town, though the Finmeresco is a bit too heavy for what I am looking for. Cool Breeze sounds interesting.
Ha, maybe so... Lesser 31426 may fit the bill (8 oz. book). Still not a true grey/blue though. http://www.harrisonsofedinburgh.com/public/images/collections/hlesser/306/31426.jpg
Sorry, should have specified - no linen (looking for something more formal) or mohair (too scratchy). Maybe something like this, though it is more grey than blue/grey : http://lindenway.tumblr.com/post/62316939906/neoretrostreetstyle-beppe-modenese-style I have a SB suit in fresco 0501 - I love the color but didn't want the same fabric in different styles. Seems too... OCD.
Looking for suggestions for a true dead-of-summer fabric, in a light grey/blue mix... Maybe slate blue is the best way to describe it. Fresco 0520 comes close, but is a bit darker than what I'm looking for. It will be for a DB suit. I have had good luck with Fresco and 8 oz. Lesser in the past but while those crooks are not in front of me, I didn't see something like I was describing in there (but I may have missed it.) I know the Lesser Golden Bale has some 7-8 oz....
I wear burgundy wingtips with my three-season brown suit. I just picked up a DB in tobacco linen that I may try out with some navy suede shoes.
I feel the complete opposite way. I have a pair of black chelsea boots, they fit great, but I feel quite self-conscious wearing them and they just sit in my closet. I don't like the way they look with suits, and they seem too dressy for casual wear.However, I'm big on chukkas. Love 'em. I have three pair in suede (snuff, dark brown and navy.) They are my go to shoe when I'm not in a suit. I'm on the hunt for a pair in black calf leather with rubber soles, to wear with...
Not sure of the rules but how I would play it, with what I currently have: - grey pants --> black leather wingtip blucher - tan pants --> dark brown suede chukka Honorable mention is a blue suede blucher, for either.
I should really get one of my pairs of black captoe oxfords (BCOs) topied... Maybe the Carminas, they are on the Forest last which would look good with it I think.
Agreed. A white shirt, black captoe oxfords and dark unicolor socks (charcoal or navy) are the usual for me when wearing a suit. So it's just picking a suit, tie and square if I'm wearing one.I admit I'm a pretty conservative dresser. Though in my work environment, just wearing a suit and tie does stand out a bit as it is.
Burgundy/oxblood for shell, brown for suede.
