    ^^ Thanks for your opinion. I am going to wait for the Darlton to pop up in B & S. Moving on, what do you think of these Church loafers. To be worn sockless with cotton office trousers and open neck shirts. On sale for 184 euros less VAT [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I like them, at least on the condition that they are not Church "polished binder".

    Where are they on sale?

    In the latest edition of

    I am thinking of getting another Caruso suit since the plain grey one I have gets a positive response on SF.

    These are the 3 I am interested in. I want a very boring conservative suit that I dont have to think too much about pairing with what shirt/tie and it should look good with dark brown shoes. I prefer to wear black shoes with dark grey rather than brown.

    So, which one to get ? I would get either 1 or 3 but I think that either would be too close to the one I already have ...

    @aj_del : You know, personally I like #1 because of the color. But if you're looking to mix up your wardrobe, #2 is your best bet. it's darker, but not black which is nice. I like the light & subtle pin-striping as well.

    BTW, the stripes in the #2 are beige rather than white

    Thanks you all for your comments and views. It seems that everyone likes #2 over #1 which is surprising because I thought a medium grey (almost) plain suit would be SF favourite by far. Anyways, here is another option, a charcoal pinstripes (white stripes) 4. [​IMG]

    Sure medium grey is great, but the only suit we (I can recall anyhow) have ever seen you in is a grey flannel.

    Makes sense; why change a winning concept?

    Wait, you smell that?

    [​IMG] I too would have voted for the charcoal grey stripe flannel. Just picked up an Isaia one, and it is sweet. I'm not a fan of the microstripes from any distance. Of course, that is personal taste.
