I am considering commissioning a suit for my wedding through Mina @ Napoli Su Misura and would love to get your thoughts regarding an appropriate suiting. As for some context, my other "nice" suit is a navy birdseye and I was hoping to achieve 2 things with this new suit: have something appropriate for my own wedding; broaden my suit wardrobe.
As such, I was considering a grey/charcoal suiting, perhaps with a herringbone weave. What do others think of such a selection? Is it appropriate for the goals above? Any other considerations I have left out?
The configuration would be a slightly conservative double vented, notch lapel, flapped pockets (as much as I enjoy patch pockets), 3r2
Thanks in advance!
Shall I take that as the Vox stamp of approval on my thoughts regarding a charcoal herringbone suiting? Perhaps I will bump into you at the fitting in Boston and you can help me out in person? (thereby instantly making me credible in WAYWRN and CBD threaks and encouraging me to make controversial posts)
I have only one fresco suit but I'd say it is quite a "crisp" cloth, one that creates quite a sharp looking silhouette, and is therefore perhaps better suited to a little bit of structure. I'd go for linen or cotton or the like for the sort of thing you describe; a relaxed cloth that will match the relaxed feel of the coat. See what your tailor thinks.
