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.

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