    It looks much much darker and much more evenly colored than the high twist navy (0505). I do rather like it, I wish this shade came in the high twist format.

    Trini...why don't you experiment with Solaro via an odd trouser?

    This is not a half-bad idea.

    Or perhaps an odd vest...I just couldn't pull them off as trousers, but that's just me.

    Count me as one of the people who doesn't like Solaro. It also strikes me as the kind of suit you'd get after you've already got 8 or 10.

    The Solaro dream is over.

    Time to revisit the spring/summer suitings thread.

    The problem with Solaro is that it wears hot but has a summer time look. So it's really only good for clear spring days or unusually cool summer days.

    The list of first shot at Solaro ties?

    I saw a suit of Solaro in progress this week and that's probably a good description. It's tough to wrap my head around it.

    well, in the middle of August, nothing runs cool. Fresco, linen, whatever, you are going to be hot. I think Solaro is perfect for May/June - Sept/Oct months. The fact that so many here dislike it is only making my resolve that much stronger. Solaro and I will succeed.

    You lead and I will follow.

    After 8-10 more suits.
