I wish that were the case with me—I pretty much can't wear the Finmeresco on sunny days anymore because of the amount of shine
. I think it was the second suit I got from Frank, so it was in heavy rotation (2-3 times a week). I also wear my jackets at my desk during work, so mouse-surfing has taken its toll as well...
I'm looking for a really informal summer jacket, and I still find Fresco a bit more formal than linen. I work in a creative field, so I'm already better dressed than just about everyone in the company (including the owner), so I'm thinking I need to turn it down a notch. The definite plus for the 8/9 oz. Minnis would be that it's less warm than the heavier Smith's, and perhaps more breezy than the linen (although that Loro Piana Mare linen has a real fresco-like weave—hold it up to the light and it's like a sieve...) Also, I'd probably get to wear it for longer than linen (I wore the Finmeresco pretty much through November and again starting in March...)
