A four season suit here is a lightweight hopsack or wool/linen blend.  

 

Autumn/winter are my favourite seasons, I love the cold weather (not to be confused with bad weather). I like a nice sunny day with the temperature being around or below 0c, the air is nice and fresh, and I'm all comfortable in my thick suit, overcoat, leather gloves, and dress boots. I too love the look of flannel suits, as well as soft tweed, and apparently corduroy based on that three-piece Hudson fit.

 

I am a fan of early spring, but I don't really like summer much, or summer suits. Linen just isn't my thing. I actually returned my linen Hudson for a wool-silk-linen Lazio because I wouldn't get much use out of it in the UK, there were like 2-3 days this summer where a pure linen suit might've been a good option, but lightweight wool was perfectly fine for this too (It's easy to layer up lightweight wool for wearing in winter).

 

I'm not sure what happend last winter in London, it did not get nearly as cold as I'd wanted, and so I only wore an overcoat like 4-5 times. It's pretty cold so far this year, so I decided to get the navy DB overcoat since it seems to be getting colder.

I ordered same size as my suits but I regret it. Way to slim at the arms.

Thanks. Come to remember that the 54 had pretty wide armholes, but maybe that is not the case for the 106. Anyway I'll head back to the store and try them again, also need to enquire costs of tailoring the 106.

I would like to buy a brown suit soon but this is not brown enough for me based on this picture. I like the new brown La Spalla but it's out of my price range.
I would say the picture of the fabric is accurate. I do agree with you about the new brown La Spalla, it is gorgeous

I can take some pics on Wednesday when I'm back at work and post here for you, no problem

I just tried on the Camel Hudson sportcoat at the Madison Ave store. Wow, talk about amazing garment, and the camel is so thick and luxurious.

 

It's bordering on outerwear...

 

I wanted to try on the Blue Wool Hemp sportcoat, but, they did not get that in yet. So now I am being tempted by the Blue Cashmere Havana and the Camel as well.

 

I might have to buy two Sportcoats this season...

Those primary SS photos are so photoshopped I find it impossible to tell what the suit looks like if there's a pattern. The ancillary shots are much more accurate. That suit has a very pronounced herringbone, which you could never tell from the primary photo (looks more like a birds eye). That pic is of the suit front and the button is at least 3/4 of an inch. Traditional herringbone is closer to 1/4 inch. It is a beautiful suit, but not a subtle pattern.

Do you guys think this suit is inappropriate for a relatively conservative business environment (wealth management)? I just received it and it's pretty nice, but unsure if the color / pattern will be too much for the office...

 

Thx

I think the pattern is subtle enough to be fine but its hard to say for sure not knowing the culture/atmosphere of your office. Is that flannel?? I like it

post #10225 of 13738

yes it's flannel. Environment is tough to describe - I wear a suit everyday, but I would say 90% of people do not.

Based on a friend of mine who works in the same industry, I would think you're safe. The color is definitely conservative, and the pattern is not so loud as to detract from the "neutrality" of it. And, as you stated, you're already on the sartorial high end of your office when 90% doesn't wear a suit. I think you're safe.

It really depends on the culture of the firm and if you have to interact with clients. I work in private equity and bought the sister suit in the grey check. My office is small and people make very bold sartorial choices, but I’d never wear it to a client meeting.

Whatever you do, there is one thing you must do.  Take some pictures of the suit in natural lighting with a decent camera and post them for us to see.  That's just because I myself am curious and would love to see this in the wild, your pictures would be the next best thing.  After that, I don't care what you do.  But I'll say that if you're one of the few wearing a suit to the office, then this is certainly suitable.  Most suits are dressier than trousers and a shirt.  I wouldn't go too crazy, but this looks pretty mild to me.  However, if you only have a couple suits I would go with something else.

X-post from Noodles advice thread. 

Pretty happy with my new Hudson. Still, I'd like some opinions from the heavy-hitters. Thoughts? 

Sleeves and pants need shortening and maybe thinking of taking in the waist a tad.

Strange-ish question:

I'm planning on visiting the Chicago store today, and have a few things in mind I want to buy. Thing is, I'm here from Australia for a week, and have no intention of paying USD prices for these items cos the Aussie dollar is tanking against the USD at the moment. So, do you think they'd mind in there if I said I want to view and try on stuff, but then order it online via their Australian site?? I could do the order's there and then, but just don't want to pay USD prices.
