I have #5, I like it quite a lot.
I'd be interested as well.
My favorite navy stripe that I've found is Lesser 13 oz, ref. number 29722. It will be my next suit from Ercole, double breasted. The stripes are just the right distance apart , with just the right thickness.
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.
