Saw this thread (SchumanNYC does Milan: These are my 4 favorite pics) and it reminded me to hunt down the perfect summer suit in beige-y linen. I'm here in Italy and the bi-annual sales are under way so why not...? Anyway, would welcome suggestions on what to go for : how many buttons, lapel depth/size, turn ups etc. Sort of mid-range price.

Not sure where you are going to be, but I found an interesting linen suit at a shop called Marlowe in Ravenna while I was there. They had two-buttons and three-buttons, striped and plain. All seemed well-made and somewhat original. Not sure whether they have shops outside Ravenna. Their web site, mlw.it, is now mostly blank.

I would go two-button. A beige linen suit is supposed to be cool, and three-button suits will leave less breathing room.
