So, I'm having a new navy suit made up in a month or so, because I have lost 30lbs since I had my last one made. I want it to be a pretty formal non seasonal suit, but I am not crazy about the idea of a classic worsted. I guess the obvious alternative would be a birdseye or nailhead, but does anyone else have any good ideas?

Mid to lighter weight navy flannel?

Great idea, unfortunately flannel trousers don't last long for me.

Spending too much time on style forum if you get that one!

 

I'm scratching my head on this one, would love to know.

What about just a regular twill?

What about sharkskin, or something with a bit of cashmere or mohair in the blend?

@TRINI what did you order from Yorkshire fabrics? Thinking of picking up a jacket length of the gunclub.

Hey. I only ordered samples at this point, including the one you got plus some other larger-scale glenplaids.

Will post pics when I get home.

Sharkskin or herringbone.

I'm commissioning a navy suit in Minnis Rangoon to get me through the Australian summer. Fully lined or half-lined? I'm concerned a white shirt may show through the porous Rangoon.

Is Ermazine really much cooler than other types of lining?

Ermezine is good in warm weather as is lightweight Bemberg (Italian tailors use them).

Mid grey in sharkskin or nailhead, dark grey or navy in herringbone.

Any issues with having the Rangoon half-lined?
