But then It just blends in. Very suit-y

I am tempted by the blue herringbone (let's call it that even though it isn't) or the houndtooth . 
But I am affixed on a charcoal grey. 
I hope I don't run into Frui 'cus I might strangle him with his own tie.
Next April or May I'll be in Seoul for my annual visit. Can't wait!

Look forward to photos, @Monkeyface. I've been thinking about SuitSupply MTM for something like a seersucker suit.

Brown MOP might be an interesting alternative. I like the contrast that SMOP provides, but I don't know if I'm keen on the color of it with the brown.

My concerns are similar to veni's. I think it could work, I'd just have to go VERY dark brown.

Is brown mop a thing? I've never seen

So we have enough material here in this thread alone for HBO to do a show on?

I haven't decided yet, but I am considering it. The lighter weight and more open weave might have been a bit more comfortable. But I'm also weighing that against other suit priorities.

Not concerned with color/tone overlap?

@Caustic Man I'm a fan of corozo buttons and they come in many shades. Caramel could work with your jacket.

I did a search for caramel on their website with no results. Can you link?

Corozo is beautiful on navy (like Murl's ring jacket)

Some, which is why I'm still contemplating, but weight and weave difference is sufficient to make them both useful. I suppose it depends on how many suits you wear and in how many different temperatures.

Do you mean corozobuttons.com? TBH, I've never looked at that site before. But there are many sellers of corozo, Ebay is a good place to try. Something like this, perhaps:

Yes, that's the one I looked at. I'll see what eBay has to offer.
