If you think that was hubris, you may not have a lot going for you.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe any of the occupations you mention issue flannel suits as part of their uniform.

Actually, I think he bears a passing resemblance to Cary Grant. That's a PoW suit, not a solid.

Ah, but they used to back when the Esquire Plates were being made, now they wear fresco, sometimes with a hint of mohair. It's the solid navy and blue-grey associations, not the texture.

Solid blue can appear awkward with a flannel cloth...A fine stripe or a chalk one will make it more interesting...

The strange thing is I love solid dark grey flannel suit..
