We’ll also highlight some of the important aspects of design, construction and measurements of a custom made suit.

The midnight blue twill suit is probably one of the most sold suit fabric worldwide. A twill fabric creates an elegant, refined look synonymous with formal occasions. Depending on the fineness of the fabric – quality fabrics often measured in numbers ranging from Super 100’S to Super 150’s (although it can go as high as Super 220’S), the more lustre and the more delicate the fabric will be. If the suits is to be worn often, we usually recommend our clients a fabric in between Super 100’S to 130’S. But if you are looking for something a bit more special, our midnight blue Super 150’S twill suit is truly a statement of elegance and understated luxury.

The combination makes it perfect as a wardrobe staple piece. A midnight blue plain weave suit can be worn in almost any situation and has the benefit of not “sticking out” too much.
