• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

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.

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!
