Go for linen

Ouch. Def. not anything with poly/synthetic fiber. You'll roast. I'd go with cotton, linen, or super lightweight (tropical) wool if you need to be a little more formal. I have an off-white cotton (Boglioli) suit, totally unlined, for those types of hot, outdoor daytime things. Can you get away with no tie?

 

As long as there is a good return policy/reasonable shipping, I'd not worry about buying online.

Ok I thought polyester would be like cotton but I guess not. Ya I dont usually wear ties

Maybe I'll get an unlined suit, I never really liked that idea though

Maybe really thing polyester though Parker could perhaps verify this i.e. Uniqlo loves poly mix jackets for S/S but it is also really thin and transparent

i second the recommendation for tropical wool. super lightweight and plainweave rather than twill, so it's sort of like wearing superfine wool mesh. i don't know where you'd begin looking for a tropical wool suit though.

I tried this on at Barney's. The fabric would be perfect for summer.

xpost from MC. I figured I'll get better answers here, like my early posts ITT biggrin.gif

"What would be the best color combination utilizing knitted wool tie? The tie's desaturated brown, almost khaki in color. It was a present; by A.P.C., very nice tie in itself. I live in the tropics. I would say very light blue or pale yellow for the shirt color? Or probably checked/ gingham with a bit of earth tones? As for the jacket, all I've got are navy double breasted worsted wool*, tan cord, and black linen."

*this is a secondary question. Got this very 80s orphaned DB jacket off thrifted. Navy worsted with verrryy subtle glen plaid It can pass for solid. Any way to make this one this-thread-level-cool?

as long as the shoulders don't fit as freakishly narrow on you as they do on the model, I say go for either.
post #462 of 832
Both look nice. I'd go with navy for daytime.

this is what i'm trying to achieve for summer sans footwear. sub in boots or simple black top / thick while sole sneakers (really do not want to buy sneakers though some PLAY cons is tempting)




Really want a similar jacket as photoed

I really thought about this look then realized where it came from redface.gif
Also the fact that I cannot grow heavy facial hair so not sure if I can make hats work for the purpose of a breezy summery outfit. I sort of have a baby face

looks great toasty.

 

@tog, those suits look pretty plain/ordinary... not a bad thing but I'd hesitate to pay that much... although the white specks on the black suit look pretty cool.

WOW, that shah look is amazing... Perfect summer fit.

 

what´s the tee, shah?
