I picked up a SB high stance 2 button (center vent -- and while I like double vent better, I like single vent much better than ventless) Aquascutum suit today. Filene's Basement. It is a light to medium gray with just a hint of steel blue threads to give it some visual texture. Fabric is very thin and smooth -- I think it is probably a Super 110s merino or something similar. Great weight for year round, and the color struck me as very appropriate for summer and spring wear especially (though I could wear it year round obviously). Total price after markdown -- $200. Full canvas construction by the way, and the pants are great -- nice fit, split back waist, etc. Fit is perfect except for the sleeves, which I'll have to let out .5". I had been told that H. Freeman is the maker of the suit. I think it was a deal too good to pass up (I have a dearth of lighter colored suit for those hot East Coast summer months).
