This is the suit I will be wearing. Awaiting a size up then tailoring of course.
I think merlot would be too flashy for this suit as its a bit bright already..
Brown, burnished Park Avenue.
Merlot could work, but I agree... more flashy than the burnished brown. I'd be more concerned about a merlot belt with that getup, if you're concerned about detracting visual attention from your young bride.
Also, brown Park Aves were my first big boy shoes and they survived the thrice-weekly (ok, probably 5 times a week) wearing when it was my only big boy shoe. Brush, condition, tree, repeat.
After ~5 years, they are now the Tim Duncan of my rotation. I want to get a much life out of them as possible, so I play them much less (twice a month) than before, and probably not in high-pressure situations. They've also aged remarkably well. Almost a milk chocolate color now, along with my wide dress belt in the same color.
Edit: Liriano and Melancon... Cutch down for a week... what are the bucs doing?
