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
.

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.

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