I can't decide between these options...

First question ...Worsted or flannel thin pinstripes/chalk stripes...

1-SB 2 piece navy thin pinstripes

2-SB 2 piece Charcoal thin pinstripes

3-SB 3 piece Navy pinstripes

4-SB 3 piece Charcoal pinstripes

hate pinstripes almost as much as I hate posts asking what suit to buy. Buy whatever is missing from your closet in the fabric that you most like. I've yet to see one Cifonelli suit that would make me want to own one. And one of those Cifonelli guys is weird.

seriously, IMO worsted will give it more legs and I'd skip the vest

I recently went with a chalkstripe flannel SB with Cifonfelli. It would be good to compare notes in 6 months time.
