    I voted for navy worsted - it would be more versatile, season-wise, than flannel, and allow you more options for accessorization than chalkstripe.

    Beyond that, I just prefer navy to charcoal [​IMG] .

    Whichever you choose, I am sure that it will be handsome.

    +1.

    But what will this suit be used for? If it's for business the navy chalkstripe would be a good choice too.

    And go with a 2-piece. 3-piece DB suits aren't necessary unless you have no heating.

    x2. A 3 piece DB seems a little crazy.

    (re)Start a trend: Flannel 3 piece. Color of your choice. Turn down the heat at home, make her nipples salute you. -S. [​IMG]

    Thanks for all the help, I decided to go with the Navy Worsted 2pc DB from Tom Mahon, first fitting is in March, hope it comes out killer.

    This is actually a navy chalkstripe. I have a couple of 3-piece DBs, including 1 in a tweed flannel.

    Navy worsted in my opinion. As it is your first DB, I think that it would be the most versatile. I believe Manton said a while ago that he often wears his Navy DB for those occasions that call for less than black tie. I like that idea.

    Best of luck with the outcome, and I hope it comes out a killer as well - pictures after the fact, PLEASE!

    Agree. Actually I have a glen plaid db that gets more wear than anything else.
