Hi guys.

 

I’m toying with the idea of having a spring/summer suit made using this cloth.

 

 

 

 

It occurs to me that most, perhaps all, of the birdseye suits I’ve seen have been navy (or some other blue) or gray.

 

Anyone have any thoughts to share on the appropriateness of a tan (-ish) birdseye for a spring/summer suit?

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

I have my doubts, Ac2.
post #16206 of 37397
As do I.

Say more?  Is there a general principle involved (no birdseye in warm weather, say) or it this particular cloth (it's a bit darker in the photo than in real life)?  

 

In retrospect I probably should have asked the question without posting a particular cloth example.

 

Thanks.

 

Cheers,

Tan birdseye is just kind of a weird thing in itself IMHO.

I can't really explain why...maybe it has something to do with birdseye being a business suiting fabric, and tan being a rare color for suits. I have seen some wool and cotton gab tan suits that I've liked, but birdseye is somehow a bridge too far. I'm sure it could end up looking very nice to someone not as picky and overly analytical about this stuff, but to me it seems like an odd fabric.

A tan Summer suit's a great idea but didn't Gdl point out that birdseye's note rite in lighter e.g. <11 oz fabrics, or some such?  There's always a wheat Fresco if u want texture, or  Dugdale's New Fine Worsted bunch  has some pinheads and textured beiges. I haven't tried it but have heard good things.

Just an example so Academic2 can make a decision. I only like birdseye in navy, think i mentioned that in the grad lounge but it's just my preference nothing wrong with it in other colors.

I like how David always brings some logical reasoning when saying something in this and other threads.

Anyways, birdseye is a particular weave, isn't it? Is there something about the weave that doesn't make it jive with light colors?
