Tailoring purchases aren’t an every day occurrence, so making sure all aspects are well considered is essential. Growing your suiting collection introduces the possibility of having a seasonal selection and as we’re knee-deep in summer right now, we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to talk about this particular triple threat. Want to know why these three suits rep summer in the BEST way? Read on to nail sunny-based smartness.
Firstly, sack off somber shades. Macabrely shaded options are not your friend when Kiss FM are banging out ‘Welcome To Miami’. Avoiding dark colours is a bright idea… no one wants to actually melt in direct sunlight. Like a solero, the freshness these suits transmit just feels right in the sunlight.
And also when it’s hotter than Hades, something else to rid yourself of are fabrics that pack in the heat. Strolling down snow-covered streets calls for having thicker things wrapped around you, but if you’re thinking seasonally – you’re best to consider lighter additions for the summer months too. Our number one rule is to avoid the 3 piece waistcoat trap… and if you think the vibe is right, swap shirting for a tee.
A touch of stretch has been introduced in these skinny suits for added comfort in the heat. We can’t provide a GCSE Physics answer as to why being able to move more freely makes your body temperature cooler, but the rigidity definitely adds an extra layer of something stressful that we don’t need whilst melting in a suit.
Have we convinced you that dark is dumb, thick is thick and stretch stretches the number of different weather conditions you can comfortably wear suiting in?
