Suit, shirt, & shoes - BB
Tie - No name brand

I don't know how hot it gets where you live (Madrid, right?), but wearing poplin is out of the question for me here. It may be light but, probably due to the tight weave, I find it 'breathes' a lot less than looser woven, heavier fabrics. So as a consequence the shirt will be soaking wet in a matter of minutes and then, yes, my jacket has to absorb the perspiration. Taking my jacket of is of course a big no no wink.gif

You should roll those down when you've finished the dishes, and that belt is a horror.  Man it's nasty.  Nice to see you back, oh dark one.

 

Anyway, amusing loud ties done; back to SF-safe knitted solid - and a DFIH too for serious groupthink.

We reach around 50ºC (120º F). Looser, heavier fabrics like linen do wear cooler for me, but for some reason they make me sweat more around the armpits (probably because of the heavier fabric bunching there), and once they are wet they won't get dry. So I have to resort to poplin or end on end. Chambray is hard to find here but I guess it would work well, too. If I wear an undershirt it will make me sweat so much that stains will go all the way through the jacket. It's fortunate that I can just take it off without anyone saying anything...

Acorn Cambridge fabric. Best summer stuff in the world. Trust me.

Interesting. Need to ask if the shirtmaker who works with my tailor accepts client provided fabrics...

I generally like end-on-end shirts on warmer days. Technically its a plain weave (as are many others) and is distinctive only by its coloring (??)... but as far as what's in the closet most of my EOE shirts have a crisp and coarser look and feel to them.

Although once the needle hits above 90*F, it doesn't really matter what the fabric is -- even linen -- its going to feel equally sweaty and miserable to me

Very true, when it is humid you can be naked and still feel miserable.

CD, there's such intensity of color in the shirt and tie, but the suit and hank are so restrained. It needs something to bridge the divide.

Conversely, I find that when I am naked and very happy, there is often humidity involved.  Take that mental image with your breakfast bagel.
