With our FW´17 sale in full flight, we would like to take the occasion to inspire you and introduce a couple of thoughtful considerations so you know what to opt for. We always recommend our customers to consider the type of situation and different occasions a certain garment is to be worn at. In other words, make sure you know why you purchase a certain product. And if you feel uncertain - Let us help, it's what we love to do.
Structured jacket & soft tweed trouser
One of our top recommendations for this seasons FW'17 sale is the odd jacket and a pair of trousers to go with it. For the jacket, we recommend to choose a weave with lots of structure - this will help you create a more casual (e.g. 'soft tailored') look. In terms of design, a patch pocket is always a good choice and we prefer the '2,5 button' option which will give your lapel a more luxurious volume and roll. Opting for this will create a jacket that works well with a range of shirts and trouser such as cotton, wool, flannel or even jeans trousers.
For the trousers, we recommend a 'soft tweed' fabric from famous Italian weavers Loro Piana. This is truly a unique type of fabric combining a beautiful structure with an amazing soft feel. Don't let the name confuse you, as Italian "tweed" is something completely different from it's British original counterpart. The soft tweed is closer to a flannel in comparison (both in weight and feel), although is doesn't have the same brushed surface. If you like flannel - you will love soft tweed! The fabric has a beautiful structure and therefore it works great as a odd trouser. For the design, we suggest single pleats, a clean waistband with side-adjusters and a 4cm turn up to finish it off.
