The deal that wasn't - Page 2

post #16 of 20
Out of town and ended up in the local outlet mall.  Wasn't really shopping, but wanted to see what was out there. Found a Canali in my size at Off 5th for $600:  gray Prince of Wales plaid pattern. The find of the day was at Burlington Coat Factory though.  A Corneliani Linea Sartoria for $250.  It was a very neutral brown-black tic weave that would have gone with most anything.  It's a shame I was travelling light and couldn't pick it up. Just had to get the wistfulness out of me...
what would you have done with a brown suit?
I'm going to take a wild guess here and say he would have worn it. Probably with a shirt. Most likely with shoes. Possibly also with a tie.

I've heard that Brown suits make excellent window treatments. But seriously, I love Brown suits. But I think that they are limited to Fall and Winter for the most part. Marshall's can be great. I've gotten Ike Behar shirts there for 15 bucks. They regularly carry Polo blue label for $350 as well. Sometimes they have some great ties. How is Century 21 by the way? What brands do they carry in suits, and what are the prices? Do they usually have normal sizes, or just big sizes?

JN, As far as brown suits go, last season's Sak's catalog had a nice look: Brown Dolce & Gabbana 3-button suit, shirt made up of a white ground with light blue, medium blue, brown, and tan stripes. I can't remember if there was a tie or not. It was a sharp look.

My favorite type of Brown suit = Medium brown with almost imperceptible tan and light blue windowpanes, low three button stance. Some brown cordovans would go nicely. Too bad I can't afford that look.

The pattern was brown-black weave, but it seemed more tan-black to me. It had a nice conservative look to it (from my POV). I couldn't see myself wearing it for evening affairs, but it'd be a great workday staple.
