I saw a really nice Corneliani cream cotton suit yesterday in Off 5th. I didn't buy it because I want to conserve funds. I also am instead thinking of having Chan make me one. I want a summer suit, tan or cream in cotton, flat front, ticket pocket, etc. I know a lot of people kind of frown on tan suits, but I would love to own just one. At any rate, is cotton gabardine something that would look nice? Or is it out with Ty Powers and Cary Grant? Should I look at a cotton blend instead? Ben Silver had a nice tan cotton/cashmere blend last spring, but at $975 for an Acquascutum suit, I thought that a bit steep, especially if I can get one custom made from Chan. Thoughts?
