    A bit like this?

    [​IMG]

    It is a bit darker in person, but some of its oomph got lost in digitization.


    Not even close. I am talking much lighter and neutral.

    The suit that stands out and I see often during summertime in NY is a camel shade of linen. I see it on the street in NY every summer in DB and SB. I don't find the shade in any sample lines is the problem.

    I think my favorite linen is a mustardy tan.

    That may be the one. French's or Grey Poupon?

    I love the way dupioni looks, but it wears unbearably hot.

    What goes with a cream jacket?

    Jeans, if you're into that kind of thing.

    I hear it is considered a winter cloth in tropical or some Asian climates. The US seems to think silk is for summer.

    My first image is Pacino after the Corleones move to Nevada. The grey dupioni suit.

    Was that dupioni or shantung?

    Sorry for yet another tangent, but I'm wondering if there is a royal blue dupioni or some kind of blue lighter than navy? I'm not having much luck finding those kinds of colors.

    If you like that kind of thing, sure. I can't remember which side of the stacking norm you're on.
