I was thinking about maybe picking up a Brooks Cool suit for the hot East Coast summers. Â With the Ebay gift card I got, I can functionally get one right now for about $300 (I got the gift card for 73% of face value, and I also have Brooks cash from card points). Â (I was planning on using the gift card for shoes -- yes, a pair of brown ones -- but wanted to run the Brooks Cool idea by you guys). Â My sense is that it is nicely tailored for the price -- not a lot of handwork but it is fully canvassed. Â The fit is pretty good, though not what I'd design for myself. Â But the drawing card obviously is that it breathes. Â But I just can't tell whether the fabric looks sort of cheap, at the same time that it looks very lightweight. Â I'm not a huge fan of super lightweight fabrics like that, but then again East Coast summers demand compromise (and I can't pull off a linen suit). Â Have any of you checked these things out? Â What do you think about them?
