I just bought my first slim suit, a 2b, peak lapel, glen plaid RL Black Label suit. My tailor has adjusted the sleeve length and hemmed the pants and I'm eager to wear it.

I have a dinner function on Saturday evening. Is glen plaid OK to wear at this time of year?

Thanks for your thoughts.

I would say year round. But if you wanted to get particular, lighter grey glen plaids might be more appropriate for spring-summer-early fall.

It's all about the cloth weight and your locale. Tropical weight in southeast, fine. NY during November, not so much.

I just noticed you are in TO. You need at least a 10/11 ounce cloth to pull it off there.
