    I grabbed one of the Pennesi suits as well and just got mine. Pretty nice, especially considering that they're dirt cheap on yoox.
    As far as sizing - I went tts and I might actually have the sides taken in a bit. Would definitely not size up unless you're tall or particularly built in the shoulders / upper back area.

    Not sure if there is any suit and/or blazer involved but I'm not sure if I care.

    Can you guys suggest some mid range priced lightweight / cotton / linen/ seersucker unstructured blazers?

    ervell is the high water mark as of now. bonus points of matching trousers are an option.

    saw this on yoox, kind of like it - but to be frank the overabundance of cropped length jackets is starting to bother me.

    would love to find something like this but with a longer length and 3/2 - not too long though just not a bumfreezer.

    thoughts on mmm14 suit?
    Composition: 82% Cotton, 18% Silk

    Is that going to be appropriate for hot weather?

    Hard to judge from the composition alone, since like wool, how much cotton insulates you depends partly on the weave. I'd try it, then if it doesn't seem whisper thin enough, you could just return it.

    Generally cotton/silk blends are fairly light weight (silk tends to be kinda breezy). The blend definitely shows up more in spring-summer collections, so there's a good chance it's light. Give it a shot.

    eglbc, if it's not too lowbrow for you, you might look at the Uniqlo "cordlane" jacket/pants -- very light, unlined, two button. the blue and tan are kinda too bright, but the black/white version looks like pale grey.

    this might be a horribly stupid question, but I tried on a linen suit and the pants were fairly sheer...so that my boxers clearly were visible, and the pocket linings were also visible. Is that common to all linen suits, or was the one I tried just poorly woven? Sorry in advance.

    It's going to be pretty sheer unless you opt for lining or heavier weight linen, both of which will make it less breathable. The MC guys prefer their heavier linens, but I also think there's a place for the really lightweight ones for the really humid days.

    The solution is to wear undies that are lighter and solid coloured, as close as possible match to your skin tone is best.

    Where can I find something like this shape, except in a non-polyester blend fabric. (Or should I just not care that this is poly blend?)
