I have tons of grey, it is the multi interviews I worry about. 50 rounds and such, I can't show up wearing 50 Shades of Grey.

Why not? I thought only women worried about wearing the same thing twice with the same crowd.

If you wear a different shirt and tie each time 99% of the population would never notice that it's the same suit.

Well considering I only wear white shirts and about 6 different ties, a lot of people would notice. I don't care in general, obviously, but for a situation where you don't want to look like as much of an eccentric that I am it could potentially be a problem.

Yeah... No one is going to notice that you weren't wearing a different suit each time.

Besides, your stuff fits well and looks good, it would be abundantly clear that this is not a "I don't have any other clothes" situation.

If you only wore green suits, then this could be a problem. Only wearing grey suits is more like a solution.

In summary: navy flannel FTW.

I recommend chalkstripe 3pc though, if you want to get a little more adventurous. Solid navy flannel isn't my favorite.

I came across a navy flannel suit a few weeks ago. I should have bought it. Dammit.

I find navy flannel sounds more like a blazer material for me. Flannel are better with fainted chalkstripe or prince of wales check.

If you are thinking of a winter navy, also consider the Lesser 16 oz navy sharskin 29608. I wore mine from Nov to May last season.

This is an interesting point and one I have gone back and forth on as well. I love plain blue fabrics and am naturally drawn to them. I have a mid-grey plain flannel in the Harrisons book that is excellent. If I did go with something more elaborate, it would be the navy flannel chalkstripe that I believe is made by Lesser. GDL had a suit from Chan made up in that fabric and it came out great.

I also don't like navy flannel for suits. Can't explain why. Love light and mid gray flannel but in the blue family I much prefer something other than navy, actually I've just ordered a blue that is a few shades lighter than navy

Agreed. Air Force Blue flannel FTW.

Great idea. I agree but I never thought about that
