I'd be inclined to stick with a solid flannel. Both navy and solid work well. Just depends what will complement your wardrobe best.

You'll wear the solid more than a stripe. A navy DB can be worn out to dinner; the stripe is best confined to business.

Well, maybe here on SF. In the real world nobody is going to look at you funny if you wear a stripe to dinner.

Strongly depends on your complexion and what you intend to use it for.

That being said, I'd never go patterned on the first one.

Italians forgive a lot of boldness... and eating is business.
