Ben Silver has a purple wool otc sock, but I don't know how dark it is because it's one of the few colors not pictured:

Many of the wool socks seem to match their cotton socks by color number. If there's any truth to that, seems the "purple" (color 590) would be on the lighter side.

Yeah, I looked at those, but was unsure about the color, thanks anyway.

Can you provide a swatch of the kind of purple you're thinking of? (Doesn't have to be a sock picture"”any ol' swatch'll do.)

The purple of RLPL if that makes any sense. Or anything darker than this.

Your particular build may require a 34 (good luck) or an Extra short (good luck again). But a slim cut would be necessary anyway- short guys like us are especially vulnerable to the kid in dad's suit effect.

The best advice is to try stuff on.

Where would one look for good value off-the-rack summer weight pants and jackets (linen, mohair, but I guess also lightweight wools)? I'm thinking Howard Yount for pants, but I'm a 43-44L in jacket, and doubt the jackets will be big enough for me. I've read a lot about summer fabrics here, but almost all in the context of bespoke tailoring. Do things like this come up on B&S later in the year?

Just won these:

But I know nothing about them - could anyone fill me in on what they are?

All good choices. I would pick based on outfits you wear more often. If you wear more brown-based outfits, pairing w/ brown shoes, go with a brown bag. If not go with a black. I just have this thing about matching...

My actual chest size is 34-34.5 As far as selecting sports coat I should go with a size 36 or a 34? I notice there are size 34 on some sites. Thanks.
