while i agree with unbel here, i still do try as much as possible to buy items or pick fabrics that are as multi seasonal as possible. now, if i had a bigger closet.....

You don't really need a bigger closet as long as you're OK with the idea of putting stuff in storage at the end of each season and pulling it out at the beginning. If you can do that, then I think you can make do with less closet space - you don't get bored with stuff as much because you essentially get a new wardrobe every few months. So having fewer things doesn't feel as restrictive.

Just wanted leave this here.

I wore this Corneliani tie for the first time yesterday. (Belated St Patricks) It is awesome. Love the colors and scale of the stripes.

The seller has another of the same tie on Fleabay for sale

Highly recomended. Someone should kop. It's the perfect width and thickness if you like a thin FIH tie knot. About 3.35.

TIE IS A WINRAR!!!!

Unbel - I don't really have any viable storage space either, I am certainly not going to pay to store my closing. I don't think it's worth the money and I would never trust the conditions elsewhere.

Jrd - a lovely tie, and you really should start posting fit pics.

Parkway Cleaners, which is quite careful with conditions (see here: http://parkwaydrycleaning.com/seasonal-storage/) charges $150 per season per box (you can fit up to 20 pieces in a box, so you'll probably only need one). That's really not very much relative to your clothing budget.

Clags, if you want want something in the navy spectrum, how about airforce blue? I'm thinking patchpockets and linen. Would be my favorite summer SC.

Unbel, I DO NOT TRUST ANYBODY!

But that is a very fair price indeed, and certainly worth my considering. Thanks. :-)

I'm idly thinking about adding an airforce, or more likely, steel blue suit to my own summer mix. It's a fairly unusual colour these days, but can tone exceptionally well with the tropical colours you sometimes see in summer, in the same way that light grey can.

^ there is a blue undertoned "solaro" which is kind of cool. Can't remember the exact name, but it's a pun on sun vs moon. Monaro, Lunaro or Seleno; something like that.

leenk? sounds interestng.

I think for a tan summer suit, I'd get the wheat tan fresco from Minnis

Got some PS's in the mail today... Pics don't really do them justice, they are gorgeous. The red is a dark burgundy, the blue isn't too bright and the yellow is a very striking gold.

It's a polarizing fabric. It is also totally boss to handle in person and the red comes off very well.
