The Mango's going abroad

For a wedding, so naturally I bought a suit from TK Max. It cost a ton ( 100quid to you non cockneys)! Its made from wool and looks good but is made very poorly and a bit tight, I cant take it back and I just found out its going to be 30c+ at the wedding. Do I wear the suit and look good but suffer? Or do I go looking scruffy and work the whole white cotton bohemian look maaaan thus making the suit a waste?

I went full suit for a wedding in Leipzig when it was 35 degrees.

It was unpleasant.

I have a friend who wore a wool three-piece to a pal’s wedding on a 30 degree day, he didn’t enjoy the experience.

I wouldn’t say we’re friends, more casual internet acquaintances.

Damn it what am I going to do with this suit!

Here’s me in Madeira wearing a navy wool suit in 30 degree heat. I looked good but I was dying inside:


Cut off the sleeves and the bottom of the trousers and wear it as a wool-suit-shorts-and-vest type of deal

Wear the suit, but stay at home and link up with the wedding via skype.

take it back and go man from del monte style

The man from del monte is my nemesis he’s all but ruined the mango trade, never mention his name again. Also I cant take it back!

cut the bottoms off the legs and arms and make shorts?

Should I buy some chinos, they don’t strike me as being very light though?

And its further expense

That is cut very nicely across your shoulders :ok_hand:

Thanks man! Off the peg that too.

Have we done a suits thread in recent memory?

Not on #newdis I don’t think.

Alright, gimme a moment
