Fans of the original BlazerSuitâ„¢ -- and I know you are legion -- will be excited to know that its sibling has arrived. Recall that the original was 10 ounce fresco, a perfect "tween" suit: not the thing for the heat of summer or the dead of winter, but a go-anywhere garment for other times of the year. The new version takes the same concept but errs on the side of cold weather. This is a 12/13 ounce worsted flannel. Flannel for surface interest, worsted for its wearing properties. The color is a little lighter, and has a touch of gray -- not enough to make the coat worn alone scream "suit" (that would defeat the purpose) but enough to make the color a little more lively. As ever, SB 3 roll 2.5, side vents, three open patch pockets, swelled edges, belted trousers. I asked for brown horn buttons again, but the tailor forgot and used blue horn. I could swap them out, but I may keep them. I rather like them. I notice the Napoli guys wear blue odd jackets with blue buttons, and like any good iGent, I want to ape them in all things ... Also, all ties in this thread Certified, Guaranteed, Genuine Soporific. OK, first up, CBD. White button cuff shirt, black shoes, black belt, blue tie: Slightly less CBD. Pink shirt, burg tie, brown croc belt, brown calf shoes. Weekend or quasi-formal evening out. Mid gray flannels, gunmetal grenadine tie, mink suede belt & shoes: Copying an old AA illustration (nothing more iGent than that!). Light gray flannels, white button down, orange knit tie: [/url] [/url] California Tux. Go Bears! Vox, I continue to await your one-upmanship.
