Anyone have the Matte Medium gray suit? Wondering on the feel and drape of the fabric. Rick, any specific thoughts? Is it a workhorse suit or is the fabric more delicate?

Anyone interested in Cotton/Linen lightweight sweaters for spring? Same with Cotton/Linen knit polos. They are quite dry, but cool wearing.
Yes to Cotton/Linen or any lighter fabrics for the polos. While I like the SS polos, they're too heavy to wear during the summer here. I also have issues with the buttons coming undone seemingly because the fabric is thick and the buttons aren't large enough to stop from slipping out of the button hole.

I have the same issue worth the buttons

It's a normal 110's, just as good as any other. The weave it a bit different, as it's not a twill, a bit more plain. It does exactly as it's name suggests, offers a more matte look for your staple gray suit. I like it a lot.

Shouldn't be happening on this years version. The SS18 one has a bit stiffer lining in the placket, they used the same lining as the collar, and when the button hole was opened, it sort of stayed "open". This season, we changed the lining and seems to be fine. I rotate 4 from this season personally and they have been ok so far.

Yep, a marked change from previous polos - the current placket/collar is much, much better and buttons stay closed 👍

Thanks, Rick! How about the medium gray texture in terms of how it holds up over time? Any personal preference between the two?

I have the trousers, didn't bought the suit. They weave is a bit open, so they are very nice for summer. They hold their shape well and drape nicely. I need to shorten mine since I like a little less break.

Both are about equal. Just personal preference. Both use the same yarn, just woven differently.

Does anyone have live action footage of the light blue suit or dark grey tropical? Thanks!

Last question - which will wear better in warm weather? Thanks, Rick!
The matte. As @Betelgeuse mentioned, this is woven a bit more open, sort of like a faux fresco, so it allows for more air to move through the cloth.
