It's my favorite, bar none, to look at; and I have it not only in a gray flannel like Fred's but also in a half dozen other iterations in solids, stripes, and checks and in weights from 9/10 oz. to 14/15 oz. Both of my dinner suits, one tropical worsted and one 12 oz. barathea, are also in this model. But if I could own only one suit, the gray flannel would be it. The sole difference between Fred's suit and mine is his choice of the keystone button placement as opposed to my preferred 6X2 rolled to the bottom button.
