Does anyone have the Blue Summer coat J225 (Outerwear) in cotton/linen and would like to say something about it?
How's the fit? Is it thin enough for the summer?
Hi everyone - first post on here after lurking for a few weeks. Knowledgeable and entertaining bunch you are. Thanks for all of your help so far.
Anyway, inspired by this thread I went down to the Soho suitsupply and picked up a Blue Stripe Sienna 38R (http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit-blue-stripe-sienna-p3502i/P3502I,en_US,pd.html). I have a sort of unique body type with a chest that really measures for a 37...so this typically puts me in a 38R so that the pants fit. This is the route I went with the Sienna and unfortunately, after three rounds of tailoring (once to tighten the waist on the jacket, then to let it out a bit, and then to tighten it again), I'm just disappointed with the fit. There's just something about it that doesn't feel right. Will post pics later, but I'm considering trying another tailor to see if they can help...a shame to drop $700+ on a suit that I don't love.
I was impressed enough with their service though that I ended up getting a Light Grey Napoli, but this time in a 36R. The jacket fits like a glove...I love it. Going to have to have the pants let out to the max, and they still may end up not being perfect, but I think they'll be close enough and I just love the fit on the jacket.

So my question though...is this light grey color inappropriate for a professional/office (media sales) setting? When viewing online I wasn't worried but now trying it on, it might only work at a summer wedding. But then again, you go with what you like, right?
