Sort of what you see on this guy's breast pocket, which looks foul IMO:

Yeah that's no good.

I have a suit of that 8/9 fresco in mid gray (I think it is 501). Very nice summer suit.

but yesterday I had to come into this city and I wanted to wear a blazer and grays and I thought it was too warm for flannel and I realized I had no great options for odd gray trousers in middling weather. All either hot or cold. So I wore the fresco. Well, that was a mistake.

Need some whipcord or something.

How about the heavy-weight fresco? It won't be breezy like the 8/9oz
post #905 of 1185
Yeah, I have the 10oz fresco in mid grey also. The jacket feels fine, but the trousers can get a bit chilly in a breeze.

It is funny yesterday I looked at the weather forecast and it said a high of like 61. I wore flannel and it was a mistake. May 61 in the sun feels a lot warmer than March 61 for whatever reason.

Got one forward pleat on my latest Ercoles. PB and I are like women on the same menstrual cycle.

Yeah, I'm debating getting it on the 3 piece I just ordered. I like the continuous line it creates.

That reminds me. Sorry for the low picture quality. Just received my navy suit in 12oz W. Bill linen. I hope that isnt an NSM bump on the shoulder. devil.gif

That suit would benefit from a little shape in the chest, or at least a little definition at the waist.

I think this looks very good but agree with Canta that the jacket would be better with more shaping. I know you may be after more of a sack shape though.

Main issue for me in booth's suit is the button stance. I want to see the waist button come up and the buttons be more spread out.

+1 - it's quite rounded to begin with, so I'm surprised Frank didn't build in more shape (maybe Booth asked for a looser fit?). I'd go for a higher buttoning point as well.

That looks nice (pa-fucked shoulders notwithstanding). The W. Bill linens are my favorite linen suitings.
