I know that I, and many others, have brought up the topic of shiny wool a few times. These conversations never seem to lead to any firm answers, however. So I'm starting this thread. I'm considering getting my first bespoke suit the next time Chan comes to DC and would like to really do my homework on fabrics before I pull the trigger so that the suit lasts for a LONG time. I am not afraid of wearing my clothes, and I like a nice patina. But shine isn't patina to me. To me, shine looks like shit. So I ask, what suitings resist shine the best? I know that all worsteds will eventually shine, but there simply have to be some that are adept at prolonging the inevitable (how else could some people claim to have worn bespoke items for 20+ years?). Are the Super 80s and 90s that SF bigtimers like Manton, etc. claim to love for their robustness also resistant to shine? Would sharkskin make a good choice b/c it's inherent sheen will hide shine from wear?
