Tailors on the board and more knowledgeable folk should feel free to sound off.cool. I honestly do not remember having ever noticed a suit in that kind of fabric. I have seen sports coats, though.
what cut of suit would be appropriate in that fabric, please?
My current effort is a standard DB suit from A&S-- very soft and light. That fabric is also much finer and less "sport-jackety" than the Holland & Sherry bunch.
I have another in the works that is 2-ply and therefore a little fuzzier and heavier, albeit with a lot of holes in it. Solid grey DB. We'll see if the coolness/wrinkle-free tradeoff continues to be satisfactory.
One that really intrigued me, and may be on the next round of summer suits, was a 12-ounce chalk stripe (navy or medium grey-- not pictured). For some reason, the chalk stripes mitigated the fuzziness of the surface, evoking the look of flannel even though it was obviously quite a different animal. Could do that one in DB, but in the interests of ventilation might go for a 2.5-button with rather soft shoulders and no lining.
