Milano Wedding

Burgundy wool / mohair three piece suit. Notched lapels suit jacket and waistcoat.
Flat front trousers with cuffs.
Mohair is one of the oldest known natural fibers used in textiles. Consisting of a protein fiber made from the hair of an angora goat, this particular type of wool is known for its supreme luster, sheen, durability and resilience. With excellent insulating properties and wicking capabilities, mohair is suitable for year ’round usage keeping one warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Typically, the hair used for apparel is of a younger goat due to the fact that it has a soft hand.

Nehru Suit

The Nehru jacket is a hip-length tailored coat with a mandarin collar, and with its front modelled on the Indian achkan or sherwani, a garment worn by Jawaharlal Nehru, the Prime Minister of India from 1947 to 1964.
This one seen here is a Black wool in Super 130’s cloth.
Mao style shirt and suit collar
Side tab adjusters on the trouser
The inspiration, I think we nailed it.
