One of my current projects is to add heavy odd trousers to my wardrobe so that I am consistently able to wear trousers that are heavier in weight than the odd jacket chosen for that occasion. A man can wear heavier cloth on his legs than he can his upper body without over-heating and the heavier stuff of course drapes better which is the objective.
On the day of the photo, I was test driving a pair of light gray 17 ounce/500 gram flannels made by Salvatore Ambrosi. They are paired with light gray Bresciani socks with navy pin stripes and a pair of SW1 monks in dark brown textured calf. Above the waist, a blue serge odd jacket worn with a light gray on white striped shirt, navy cashmere necktie striped with white and a white linen handkerchief with a lilac border.
