Yes. I would recommend a different worsted. Mine needs too much pressing. But good memory.

I don't know what I would do with Solaro. I can wear linen to work in summer and not feel at all out of place but I think Solaro would be too much.

If I wear a tie on weekends, it's pretty much always with an odd jacket.

That's generally true for me, but certainly not a rule. I wear suits often enough on weekends, and they are mostly ones I don't wear to work (either because they are more or less formal).

I figure I have enough conservative stuff already in my closet - these two help change it up a little bit. Next order will be a few LL linen sportcoats and some boring suits in gray, tan and navy.

I really don't have non-work suits--no tweed, for instance. The most casual suits I have are linen and those I will wear to work in summer, though tyically only on Fridays.

A suit on the weekend for me means I am going to a weeding or a baptism.

the flannel suit looks fine for work to me.

No reason, just felt that the Fox had more depth.

It is a very short step from this sentiment to barber shop quartet.

As much as you are always sartorially fit, are you not out of place a bit in your fine threads at one of these weekend 'weedings'?

I would think so from the various blokes(and blokettes, would not want to be a chauvinist) that I have seen taking up the sport in earnest.
