The fabric is indeed pretty similar, It is the deco stripe -the windowpane overpaid- that is different. One is purple and the other blue. The farthest right garment is a sport coat. My view on duplication in the wardrobe is a little outside the norm. I have two white suits: one is double breasted and silk the other is linen and single breasted. That is different enough for me.

I'm wearing linen on Friday. You heard it here first. It'll climb above freezing during the day and is sunny.

If that ain't summer, I don't know what is!

Why boring shirt?  No ginghams or oddities?  Any colour restrictions on the shirt?  Should I assume conservative means white, blue or micro stripe?

 

I will also be wearing linen. Because it's always warm.  And because my other new navy suit isn't finished yet.  Nor is my new navy blazer.  And because I have special awesomes in mind.  I am in.  Very much in. And I will wear it tomorrow.  And I will be expecting votes.  Which, frankly, is a first for me in a Friday Challenge.  Here we go...

So, navy linen for the contest then?

It would have been more illustrative to show the two suits side by side, I'll grant you, but I just didn't have a picture of the linen suit handy.
