Have you tried just having the tailor lengthen the jacket? There should be fabric for it and I don't think the pattern is any different in L otherwise.

Never thought about it. I would have to drive 3-4 hours to SF or LA to find someone I would even consider letting do it. If Noodles doesn't take it, I guess I probably will.

my issues: 1) patch pockets x

2) flannel

 

Fine. patch pockets, seem not to matter. 

But for someone who is trying to rebuild his staple, why throw in a flannel? I want a 3 season suit! :nest:

Bring it!

flannel durable?

Depends on the climate you live in. Over here, flannel is very much a staple, since it's often flannel weather from August to May.

A suit with patch pockets looks exactly like a suit with flapped pockets anytime you are in the office with your jacket off, which is probably a good amount of the work day. If you are wearing the jacket and sitting behind a table at a meeting or at a lunch, very few people are going to look at your pockets. If you are standing up and meeting people, a few people might notice. Of those, a tiny minority is going to care (and a smaller still minority would care in any sort of negative way). Keep in mind that this is a suit in a classic conservative color. Also, a windowpane pattern or a DB suit are both going to get more attention than patch pockets, yet you seem to have no issue with either.

If you really decide that patch pockets are going to bother you, buy the navy NMWA suit. In the meantime, look at SS and other potential sources for suits to add to your rotation.

Honestly, because I guarantee you that not one single person in your CBD office will notice the pockets. If you were in some kind of Manhattan firm, idk, maybe, but from what you have shared of your workplace, there is no way this is an issue.

As for the actual aesthetic, Murls pic summed that up.

Both amazeballs. No way to say one is better than the other. Fortunately, you need both!

It's a relatively light flannel. You should be able to wear it comfortably for almost as long as you'd comfortably wear most of the other Formosa suits (maybe 2 weeks less on each end). You're really splitting hairs with this this 3 season suit stuff (plus the whole 3 season / year round stuff is just a bunch of marketing BS unless you live in a really stable climate). During the very brief period where the flannel might not work but your other suits do, you should have some summer-weight suits to help fill the void.

I do have a lot of blues in my closet...hmmmm...I am such a pushover! 

post #14098 of 37482

durability of the fabric?

post #14099 of 37482
Both highly durable. Pretty similar except one is fuzzy and one is weavy.

Right on the money.
