So I should always wear an undershirt with my broadcloth shirts and fresco blazers at social events? Otherwise could my nipples show up in flash photogrpahy?

This is one aspect of the ambrosi trousers that I don't like. I remember your Ercoles off-white flannel with the high waist and I thought that looked wonderful on you.

I'm not sure that there is much point to a fully lined fresco unless you get a jet black version for a summer dinner suit and want a bit of a contrariness in the hand and sheen of the fabric.

Very enlightening, thanks.

I can't imagine that we'll ever be subject to regular bouts of flash photography.

Here is the Minnis fresco, reasonably color-true.

Just sayin'. There are some secrets to staying together a long time...this might not be the most important, but I would keep it on the list.

I don't know why you are worried about nips, the canvas--whether black or white--should obscure those, no?

Is this from the new batch? Looks different from a closer shot,seems like the buttoning point on this one is lower.

Close inspection of the ^ confirms that Ms Hathway's nipples are not showing thru Mantons suitings.
Thanks
