    Congrats Noodles on the purchase. I know how much you loved that fabric.

    1. Lol at the Formosa PoW being an FU suit. Its essentially a solid gray from a few feet out.

    2. Its a F/W and maybe start of spring suit, but past that its too heavy imo.

    In any case, HANJOY because its awesome!! :slayer:

    Stitchy, for someone who wears mostly solids and subtle windowpanes, it is comparatively "FU."

    ^ So now you have 3 Formosas, your wedding suit and 2 Zegna beaters to rotate for the time being?

    Comparatively perhaps, but as an owner of that same suit, I cannot in good faith call it an FU suit. :)

    Correct on the suits and count.
    The rotation won't be even.
    Formosa suits will probably be worn once a month.
    Wedding suit will probably be worn once in a blue moon.
    2 Zegna beaters will be worn most often.
    Will incorporate odd jacket and pants.
    I don't foresee additional acquisitions (suits) in the near future.

    Um, so you're going to be wearing your zegna suits and odd jackets 3 weeks of every month?

    Yes. My one Zegna already has wear and tear and need stitching around armpit area. I need a good plan.

    Sadly, I have no FU suits at present. If you mean my Formosa PoW, you can find it on the NMWA Gallery page and my tumblr. Im too short on time to post up pics of it now. Sorry. : (

    Unless you're planning to wear grey trousers and an odd jacket 2x a week, in which case you need 1-2 pairs of grey trews and a few sc's.
