    All I'm saying is that I could pull off that purple herringbone. :nodding:

    It would go well with your earrings.

    Rule of thumb: Never trust a black man who doesn't have facial hair.

    Ah it's in reference to a stand up comedy act by Deon Cole. I'm guessing you aren't a deon cole fan.

    Never even heard of him. But then again I'm a black man who sometimes has no facial hair... :)

    Unfortunately I can't pull it off, and tend to look creepy when I do shave [​IMG]. The purple sc is another story. I'll be straight "blingin" like c-3po when that becomes apart of my repertoire.

    Are the Molloy & Sons' donegals suitable for a suit, in your opinion? I'm concerned about the trousers durability.

    In that case I have no objection.

    I have several trousers made from the donegals. Very soft and comfortable. They are unlined, and so far no durability issues.

    On the left are the winter flannels/tweeds, etc. On the right are the summer frescos/linen with a tan cotton solaro to be added in the spring.

    What should I be considering next?

    Go.

    Apart from moving your cuff buttons further away from your elbow, perhaps a discreet pattern or two. Herringbone, POW.

    I'd focus less on diversifying patterns and more on diversifying colors and material. Maybe brown corduroy, green tweed, beige or green cotton, tobacco brown linen.

    FME, getting another pattern for the sake of diversifying isn't always that useful, but it is useful to have a range of fabrics and colors to choose from.
