Would the blazer suit work in cotton for people in less formal industries or fridays?

A navy suit in cotton. The jacket seems like it could function pretty well as a navy blazer. Obviously the suit wouldn't be ideal for interviews in the finance industry or law, but for people in casual contexts that just like to wear a suit and sometimes like to mix the jacket up with other trousers?

I have one, though the blue is a bit brighter than navy. I've never considered it a blazer suit, but I guess it could work that way.

I think it works in all fabrics.

Vox, your secrecy is costing you adherents/sycophants. Look how many followers I have gathered. Your suit might be better, but you need to get it out there.

Nope. Bespoke.

Which raises an interesting question. If the cloth is "bespoken," is there a word for bespeaking multiple cloths for the same garment? Multispoke? Manispoke? Or as in this case, omnispoke?

Or is it simple glossolalia?

I never claimed it was better, just superior.

It's not done yet. Its current incompletion cannot cost me adherents/sycophants that I have never had.

Don't you understand? It is a zero sum competetion. Every one that I pick up while you dawdle is one you can never get.

So what if it is not finished. You could at least describe it.

Just to keep your momentum going, what do you think is plugged into the wall in that photograph?

I missed talking about this. Someone please bump that thread. BTW, I noticed an interesting pattern matching feature in something of mine today. I have a suit of Harrison's blue flannel chalkstripe. It is DB and I ordered it with a lapelled vest. The notch lapels are rolled rather than sewn, but, since the collar doesn't go around my neck (it is just two pieces of cloth sewn to connect the lapel and the back of the vest), my tailor figured he could pull off a neat trick. The chalk stripes line up perfectly where the lapels and collar connect. It is quite cool - each lapel/ collar half looks like it is a single piece of cloth. I have no idea why he did it that way instead of making it look like a normal collar, but he did.
