Traveling with a suit can be a little headache-inducing. There’s all the packing methods to get your suit to your destination wrinkle-free and if you decide to wear it on your flight it’s probably not the most comfortable thing to have on at 30,000 feet. Paul Smith solves those issues with his new “Suit to Travel In.”
The suit is made in Italy from a special wool that’s elastic and breathable so you can move freely without the uncomfortable restrictions of a traditional suit cut. More importantly, it has a high-twist yarn that bounces right back into shape after wrinkling.
This is pretty much the best thing ever. Poler and Airblaster have hooked up a limited edition stink proof merino wool Ninja Suit. Enough said. Rush here to get one quick and hit the jump for full feature list and images.
We know suiting decisions can be a tough one and if you’re looking for that ONE goto suit, we think you can’t go wrong with Freeman’s new 3-Piece Flannel Suit.
Whether you wear the suit in its entirety for a more formal affair or dress it down just a crisp white shirt, it’s a perfect suit for many occasions. The suit is made from 11 oz Super Heathered Wool Flannel from the oldest family-owned mill in Italy and is cut with a more modern fit that isn’t too slim or narrow. It’s also built on camel and horsehair canvas and has full 100% bemberg lining, and of course, is Made in the USA.
Garment bags are a dime a dozen, but if you’re packing a beautiful bespoke suit you don’t want to pack it in just any bag. Filson has come through with their own Suit Bag and if we’re going to entrust anyone with our gear, Filson’s definitely at the top of that list.
Their suit bag comes in navy or their signature otter green and is made from a lightweight, water-repellent 12oz nylon to protect your suit. It also has a pull-through hood for an extra layer of weather protection and Bridle leather is found throughout the bag in the handles, snap-closure tabs, and an interior strap that secures the hangers.
If you’re an athlete you probably already know that there aren’t a whole lot of great suiting options for more muscular builds and the ones that are available aren’t exactly flattering. J.Crew has come to the rescue with a new suit called the Crosby.
It’s everything that’s great about their popular Ludlow suiting with a fit that’s more in tune broader physiques. They’ve strategically added room in all the important areas adding more width in the shoulders, chest, and arms and more room in the seat, legs, and thigh. The fit and finish is still maintained with all their premium fabric options and a flattering cut that is up there with the best that Saville Row has to offer.
Suitmaker Ozwalkd Boateng brings a bit of Saville Row to the N98 with his take on the N98 Track Jacket. Boateng has come up with a suit concept that mixes classic tailoring techniques with technical features normally found in a sport performance piece.
Designed for the Brazilian football team, Boateng and Nike chose a lightweight wool to keep players comfortable in the country’s warmer climate and features tracksuit sleeves on the jacket and on the ankles of the pants. A tonal Brasil logo across the back evokes a sporty and refined aesthetic and technical details are strategically placed throughout with lasercut perforations and sonically-welded seam-sealed pockets. The suit will be exclusive to the Brazilian hosts for the time being and with how well executed it is, it would be a big mistake for Nike to pass up on a general release.
If you pay attention to the menswear world you’ve probably seen Nick Wooster more than a handful of times sporting his trademark suit and shorts combo. It’s a look that makes for a perfect summer suit, but it’s also a pairing that might scare some guys simply due to the fact that it’s a a suit…and shorts.
To get the look right, all it takes is a bit of confidence and a give no f—s attitude. Just ask Nick. J.Crew’s version is a perfect summer option with its cotton-linen blend and its unconstructed blazer. The classic tartan pattern is also a great touch and if you still need a little more convincing, J.Crew’s got a great little interview with the “Woostgod” himself on taking sartorial risks.
