    I am a thin wale guy. I have a length of chocolate brown 98/2 from Ariston I will have made up as a suit at some point

    Go thin wale. I firmly believe that few articles of clothing age a person as much as wide whale cord. If that is not a consideration, then go with wide whale.

    That burnt orange would make a nice pair of trousers. Not sure about a suit though.

    I think the orange needs to be more orange, and the olive needs to be more green.

    Regarding the opinions shared by others, I agree: the burnt orange for trousers. In regard to a green/olive suit, you must like and/or be able to wear green successfully to even be considering that option. If so, what is the problem? I have a light olive green corduroy suit and have recently added a dark olive jacket in corduroy to my rotation. Green and corduroy: what's not to love? The only downside is that it's such a tough choice between green/olive and chocolate brown, if the latter isn't already in your wardrobe. I say pull that trigger.

    Not too sure about peak lapel SB for corduory, but that looks pretty good. Ah, to be skinny. Or just not fat.
