Dear Noodles thread: I wonder if I could get some thoughts on a particular suiting fabric?
Situation is as follows. I work in a CBD environment, so suits most days, but only have two that I really like (a charcoal pinstripe MTM from KW, and a navy chalkstripe flannel). I am moving to the Middle East this summer, and so have been focusing on climate-appropriate fabrics for my next orders.
The following navy hopsack was suggested, shown here on Kent's site:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
What are your thoughts on this weave for a suit? In searching I found a lively discussion (punctuated by Vox-driven asides) here with a diversity of opinions but no really clear conclusions (and mostly dead picture links).
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
I'd look into fresco if you're going to be living in a warm climate. I think Minnis sends free swatches: https://shop.hfwltd.com/collection/22
