Flannel for Fall

It may be Indian Summer here in San Francisco but we’re warming up to the Fall season with this light brown suit in a Super 120’s flannel wool by Vitale Barberis Canonico
The light beige or you could call it Oatmeal has a nice light texture and nap to it.
At only 270 gr it is the perfect weight for the Bay Area and a Fall wedding. Just giving it the right amount of warmth and texture without making the wearer too hot .

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.

“Fresco Traveller” Summer Suit

Looking for a suit that is light and cool enough for Summer but isn’t linen and stays crips like business suit? Well this beautiful blue suit in a “Fresco Traveller” fabric by Caccioppoli is the one. Fresco is typically made up of a high twist wool and plain weave. The high twist creates an open weave which makes it very breathable and lightweight, great for hot weather. Although it is quite dense and very resilient, makes it perfect for traveling. The subtle plaid pattern shown here also has a bright blue windowpane which adds a little pop of color. Caccioppoli fabric #390434 in Book no. 3904

Two piece, two button suit in a notch lapel, rounded patch pockets and flat front trouser with side tab adjusters.

3 1/2″ wide notch lapel with Milanese buttonhole and a soft shoulder
