    Emperor Akihito. I like how his navy tie and suit have a richer, bluer tone than Sarkozy's suits, which are sometimes in a rather flat shade that's black or nearly black.

    CSox I have looked high and low, and wasted much mula on blue suits, in search of that hue. The nearest I saw was a Canalli but it was slightly more washed out and didn't work.

    Really? It's "Air Force Blue," the default iGent color. I have it (Minnis Fresco 0520) on a MTM Mashburn suit. That's the fresco option, but that shade is available in a ton of different weights and material combinations.

    On that site? I've looked like a man though.

    I wouldn't call it UK Air Force blue though, really? US Yes.

    I find it wears lighter in natural light. However, there are shades lighter than that available from Minnis. Check both books I and II.

    And yes, US Air Force. Sorry for the confusion :D
