I bought a dark navy colored suit last year from J. Crew in tropical wool, and I am wondering if it is okay to wear during colder months (I live in New York City). My gut is that since it is very dark with brown buttons, that it can look wintry and also be worn in summer, as it is light weight and breathable. However, it is my first suit in this kind of fabric and I don’t to seem gauche if there is a rule about seasons in which this fabric is appropriate, and when it is not. Any suggestions?
Interesting question, reader P — and I’m curious to hear what the readers say. My initial reaction here was, OF COURSE you can wear tropical wool suits in the winter! They’re seasonless! But then I second guessed myself and did some Google research.
