I'll bump my thread with a second question. I've read that a windowpane pattern should be avoided in short guys (I'm 5'6") because it makes them look shorter. I'm inclined to think this is BS because the same prevailing wisdom is that pant cuffs make guys look shorter and that pinstripes makes guys look taller, and I don't feel this when I look in the mirror (I also don't really like pinstripes.) Any thoughts on the matter?
While I don't think yellow pants are my style (at the moment), you pull them off well. I think the key is keeping the shirt and jacket more sedate and simple, since the pants are so adventurous.

It wouldn't be the first or even third thing I'd reach for for either business or a night out on the town, but if it fits your style go for it. It may be something I'd consider down the road if I get tired of other fabrics and want to experiment.

That looks great. A while back I had seen a navy suit with crimson/red hued pinstripes, and while I wasn't looking for a pinstripe suit I really liked the color scheme. If I can find something like this in a not-too-heavy fabric it might be the...

I'm thinking of having a windowpane suit made, since I haven't found any OTR that I like. Can anyone give advice on good fabric books for this? I'm thinking something three-seasonal wool, maybe closer to the lighter end - definitely not winter weight, I'd rather add a heavy jacket than sweat. The suit is not intended for formal business occasions, though I may wear it to work from time to time. Thanks in advance.
