When is the time to wear flannel suits.

I just got a Banana Republic dark gray with light chalk stripes. Was wondering when the best time to wear it?


Thanks.

Think it is socially acceptable in most offices? Just new to the flannel world.

I'd think it would be acceptable in the winter. Some flannel suits are really incredible.

1938? That was probably the best time to wear them. Flannel suits are great. I wear my one good flannel suit in the winter on cold days.

Looks just like this. Maybe the same suit though neither of the pictures do it any real justice.

I have already started to wear my flannel suits for the season. Earlier in the week it was rather warm in these parts, so they stayed in the closet. When it's a daytime high of 65 or less, then they come out.

I've been comfortable in mine so long as it's under 75 degrees.

When you want to and as long as it is not 100 deg in the shade.

Did you get it on sale at Banana Republic?

If it's a regular price item, and BR is displaying them now, then NOW is the time to wear flannel.

Anytime it's cool enough for the slight "warm fuzziness" of the fabric not to look out of place!

Happy wearing!
