A well-made suit is a daily staple for many of us. And like the weather outside, our suiting needs change throughout the year. Perfect for summer, the Taylor Stitch Telegraph Suit aims to be your go-to in warmer weather. It's hand tailored in Portugal from Italian milled wool-linen chambray that's both lightweight and breathable, finished with chambray lining. Since we tend to be more active when it's warm out, the suit also offers just the right amount of stretch, making it perfect for fidgeting your way through a boring presentation or hitting the dance floor at a midsummer wedding reception.
When it comes to travel, unless you're willing to lug around a cumbersome garment bag, your suit is gonna get wrinkled. Unless, of course, you have the Apolis Civilian Travel Suit. It's stylish, comfortable, and is reliable enough to stand up to your travel plans. Made from lightweight linen tailored in Portugal and available in grey or navy. And best of all, it's easier than trying to make sense of that old school iron in your hotel room.
Ministry of Supply believes that a suit doesn't have to be stiff and uncomfortable. Their 3D Suit proves that a suit can be as cozy as sweats, without compromising the look you need for a business meeting or formal occasion. Made from a new material that provides unrestricted movement, the soft, versatile suit even has an added layer of insulation to keep you warm without adding any bulk. Wrinkle-free, easy to machine wash, and available in blue and gray.
We've all been there, all had an important business meeting scheduled just minutes before the best waves of the day. Actually we haven't. But if we had, we could have used one of these True Wetsuits. Developed by Quiksilver in Japan and TBWA\Hakuhodo, they're available in three styles, include a jacket, pants, shirt, and tie, and are made-to-order over the course of two months from water-friendly high-stretch jersey neoprene and dryflight fabric.
Look your best while staying as safe as possible in the Garrison Bespoke Bulletproof Suit. Like the name says, this suit is tailor made to fit your body in a color or style that fits your complexion, all while offering protection in dangerous locales. How, might you ask? By using the same carbon nanotubes designed for the US troops uniforms in Iraq, making it thinner, more flexible, and notably lighter than your standard Kevlar cover. Bespoke bulletproof business helmet not included.
Far from strangers when it comes to collaborating, you already know their button-up shirts well — but now they've teamed up once again to produce Gitman Vintage x Unionmade Suits. Available in a range of great-looking fabrics (from navy or charcoal wool to khaki twill and navy seersucker), these suits are cut in a modern shape complete with narrow, notched lapels, a single rear vent, two buttons, and two waste pockets. The trousers sport a tapered cut with two rear pockets and YKK zippers. Ideal for summer weddings, trips to the horse track, or hot days at the office, these suits are minimally lined and completely made in the USA.
How do you plan for both a structured look during office hours and a casual look after hours — all while avoiding a costume change? Everlane answers that question with their new Knit Blazer. Made from 100% cotton in a Milano stitch, the blazer's as comfortable as your favorite broken-in sweater, but keeps you looking on top of your game. Cut to fit like a slim blazer, it sports a wool-lined collar and tonal buttons. And it won't hurt your wallet either, so you can wear it to work twice a week, and still afford to buy a round or two on Friday.
Your part of the world stuck in the hell that is this pre-Spring, late-Winter temperature roller coaster? Gear up right with the Woolrich John Rich & Bros. Hiking Blazer ($550). Designed by Tokito, this lightweight jacket is made from a cotton/nylon blend that dries quickly and is water repellent, yet still offers reasonable protection from wind and cold. Other features include three flap patch pockets, a center button closure, elbow pads, and a removable hood that makes it easy to transition from commute to workday.
