Gentleman,

This is my first post, so forgive me if I fumble this a bit. I am hoping that someone here may be able to help me obtain certain information about a specific suit color that I saw Ryan Seacrest wear a few years ago while hosting American Idol. After postponing my long extensive search for the suit at various stores (e.g., Saks, Neimans, etc.), I am back on the saddle again and am attempting to go the bespoke route in order to find as close of a match as possible.

The suit I am referring to is a solid very light grey with a slight blue hue to it. I have been told that the color is commonly referred to as "soft grey", "blue grey" and "heather grey". I am a little suspect of the last description as the "heather grey" I know of does not fit the bill. Anyways, if anyone can provide any information (i.e., photo, name of color, type of fabric, weave, label, etc.) I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing everyone's response.

Not 100% sure, but I dont think it's birdseye cloth. I would say a fine wool (or wool blend), perhaps maybe even in a sharkskim weave, as it has a slight shine to it. But I could be wrong. I just remember the suit and it's been stuck in my head ever since.

It might have been made for Mr. Seacrest by Oswald Boateng.
