Even among many of the pics that I thought were interesting this week, there is a widespread migration away from coat and tie. I think that you are right that a lot of men falter in not having tailored clothes good for the summer. The demand on creativity and style when you try to combine tailored cothing items with more casual items (a knee jerk response to lacking summer wear) is daunting, and rather difficult to execute convincingly.
ABSOLUTELY. And what MTM can solve for me with suits, trousers and jackets, it does not accomplish with casual and light summer wear. I have 36"+ arms, I'm trim... there's nothing OTR that approaches the custom fit.
I hate my casual wardrobe right now... what's left of it.
