    HK acquisitions from last week. The light blue is a linen from Peter Lee's house book while the Fresco is from Chan from the H&S discontinued Fresco section. Both have natural/shirtsleeve shoulders and fit very well right off the bat and kudos to them for finishing in time. Will try to put up fit pics one of these days.

    Ya got me! Tough to know where to post items like these nowadays as I'm technically not wearing them although they do come from fun fabrics.

    Nice. Unlined pants seem like a good way to go. Have you worn the suit on hot days? How does it handle?

    The fabric is not the lightest, so it helps to have a breeze. Honestly, though, I'm just not wearing a suit outside that much, so I don't really notice. I'm relatively uncomfortable in any fabric in the D.C. summer heat.

    Good stuff gus! Those are the two I would have chosen.

    The fabric is not the lightest, so it helps to have a breeze. Honestly, though, I'm just not wearing a suit outside that much, so I don't really notice. I'm relatively uncomfortable in any fabric in the D.C. summer heat.

    Yeah, I imagine DC isn't the best city for anything other than seersucker in the summer!

    Clearly you were doing that to taunt those of us unable to fund our liabilities =O
