    I saw this suit at the Madison store last weekend. I think it is nice, but I am a bit unsure of the color...it is a very light (Pearl) gray that will certainly work in the summer months. I live in the south where I could probably wear it 9 months out of the year.
    How do you guys feel about the color and use?
    Thanks for the comments.

    personally, I love this shade of gray. I have a similar light gray suit with very subtle light blue windowpane, and it's my favorite suit. Extremely versatile, imo. I am also a believer that light gray can be worn year around, especially since it's not a blend (i.e. it's 100% wool).

    As for use, many color shirts can go with this (any combination of blue - dark, light, stripes, etc.), navy blue, or some similarly darkish color tie, brown shoes, black shoes, etc.

    That's my next suit. I actually took a cellphone pic when I saw it in the Highland Park store. Great wedding suit, too.

    Probably not best as one of your first two or maybe three suits, but looks great. You'll surely get plenty of wear out of it.

    Thanks for the comments. I have a sea of navy and charcoal and need to break out of my comfort zone.

    That, sir, is a damned good looking suit. Wear it with confidence.
