Thanks all.

Have you thought of a double-pinstripe instead of a chalk stripe?

It is quite different...

Never seen such a pinstripe, but would like to... The fabrics in question, however, are ones I already own, not ones i'm considering buying so it's something of a done deal.

Great, but is it blue navy or black?

I´m looking for a suit as this one;

^I am wearing one today. It is a navy suit with a light blue pinstripe and a silver pinstripe alternating. Very effective as different shirt/toe combo's can really change the look.

Deep navy... not the charcoal blue in your pic.

Who´s minnis ? Please help with my possible next purchase, this Caruso. I would like it to be like the A & S blue fabric from above, but seems charcoal right? http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=181965 How good is that flannel Caruso? Seems exactly as my wool cashmere one.. The right one is me Thanks
