I meant cool in the Miles Davis stylistic sense of the word. However If I were a funeral director, I would absolutely have some black linen and fresco suits for summer even if they wouldn't necessarily be "cool" in the context I was referring to. If you must wear black, might as well be the most breathable material you can find.
Fresco is a faithful friend this time of year !!!

as a funeral director, I am forced to wear black almost year round. There is nothing cool about it. The sun absolutely bakes you. I should think linen may be a bit cooler, but not by a long shot.
That's funny, although where I'm from although you'd expect the funeral director to be sober, to wear black to a funeral could be seen as upstaging the mourners.

Has anyone here been to Tip Top Fabrics in Brooklyn (Greenpoint, Brooklyn to be exact)? I live a short walk from Tip Top and have stopped in a number of times over the past year.
Now, I've only been in a few fabric stores prior to this and none devoted solely to apparel fabric; is it me or is this place a fabric Mecca? So. Much. Amazing. Fabric.
The owner is a also great resource for custom tailors in the area.
