@MrFingers a search on your name and "flannel" turns up nothing useful.... imagine it's January; Are you excited to wear your Botto suit, or indifferent? Do you have any pics of it IRL?
I told Raphael I wasn’t impressed with the flannel material but that I also hadn’t owned one so I’m prolly out of my pay grade talking about it lol it kinda feels like pajama flannel to me but it is a great looking suit and feels comfortable. Need to drop it off at the tailor later this year. Looks pretty much the same as the pics posted online

Getting ready to meet with a client. Sondrio cotton-linen pants and light blue stripe button collar shirt. Jacket is not Spier. I have tried time and time again to find a Spier jacket that fits me. They just don't fit me well. Luckily I've had this jacket for a thousand years, and it's held up, and looks great with my Spier S/S items!

TY
The fabric honestly doesn’t look like a linen blend. No evident slubs or nubs. Open weave though

As for trousers, you can easily do navy brown rust. Today I’m doing the yellow-ish Khaki Quest Cottons

Anyone have one of the Botto flannel suits that can share a pic (either worn or unworn)?
I have both and they are superb. Here's the Navy

I managed to get the last charcoal one in my size a couple of weeks ago, was a no brainer with a further 20% off an already generously discounted sale price. It's also a stunner - will try and get unworn pics up for you tomorrow.

And slowly my mind drifts from 'should I get that flannel suit' to 'which one should I get' to 'do I need any shirts with the 2 flannel suits'...

@wilcthree That solarus looks great! How does the fabric handle in the heat? I've mainly been using wool/linen blends for the summer. The solarus is 100% wool so wondering how it breathes in the heat.
