I finally received my Modern Navy Linen suit last week, just in time for the really hot weather. The fabric is a blend of wool and linen and it's actually really effective. The suit is cool and light, but doesn't wrinkle very much. Used it twice last week and all I needed to do to get rid of the few wrinkles was to hang it in the steamy bathroom. Definitely read for business, even as a linen suit. Fit is really good, but it's worth mentioning I had to get a remake on the jacket. My profile was switched to a digital pattern and that caused some troubles with the measurements (waist was suddenly 4 inches smaller) - all sorted out now, once and for all, I hope.
I decided to basically copy the outfit of the model Indochino uses and ordered the Navy & Gold Striped Knit Tie as well. It's slimmer and thinner than I thought it'd be, but it does fit nicely with the blue suit and a plain white shirt. Remember to keep knit ties rolled and don't hang them like normal ties - the material would stretch. As for the suit, I went for a pretty standard one as I will mainly wear it on the job. 2 vents, 2 buttons, notch lapels - perhaps the only thing special is the ticket pocket. Thinking about getting that Brown Linen suit too now...
