    This is the blue windowpane Formosa, ja? How 'blue' is it IRL? Looks lighter than the navy birdseye but want to make sure the two aren't too similar

    definitely lighter in real life, the glenn plaid, compared to the navy birds eye.

    Hmm ... tempting..

    Also tempted by this (the same as @Murlsquirl 's much-discussed flannel, I think).

    But wondering how practical it is for the Australian climate. Does the flannel wear noticeably hotter than similarly-weighted fabrics? How fuzzy is it?

    True, "need" was a strong word. I should have said "my desire for you" is a shoe game that more closely resembles your business dress. From my point of view it would really tie your entire look together nicely. But, I accept this won't be happening and leave it at that.

    Nice! Is that a 48R or a 50R?

    100+ posts since I'd last been here. They, for the most part, did not disappoint whatsoever.

    100-plus posts in this thread during a Noodles picnic attack . .. hmmm I'm guessing that means you stepped away from your computer for about 2 hours. Sound about right?

    Ha, yes. I double checked and I basically skimmed a little early this morning but then did not read anything again until I was having lunch.

    So exactly how many texts were sent about a suit and thumbs today which led to this?

    @The Noodles those grey fresco formosas are the bomb. You need a summer weight suit.

    Close to the same shade as that craig pic too...

    I can't wrap my head around summer flannel. Even if it's like 11 or 12 oz. cloth, it still isn't very breathable. I have to imagine humidity being brutal.

    What weight is the flannel cloth? I've heard of summer weight flannel but it's supposed to be very very lightweight stuff.

    I'm kind of skeptical of a summer flannel. I wouldn't want a warm fuzzy cloth in the summer that absorbs moisture. I'd want a dry open weave like a fresco
