Dutch brand Suitsupply are most certainly a favourite of mine on The Gentleman Select. Consistently they have produced many stand out pieces over the years. Happily once again, I can say they have knocked it out the park by presenting the worlds lightest suit. A wonderful alternative to linen and indeed perhaps the perfect answer for that upcoming summer wedding you have on the cards.
If you are familiar with Suitsupply as a brand, you will know they create some lovely pieces of clothing. From tailoring to swimwear they do it all. In addition to this, they now have the worlds lightest ready to wear suit. An ultra light 525g in weight suit to be precise making it really quite the creation. To put this in perspective the traditional two-piece is 1030g so in terms of weight saving what Suitsupply have done is quite incredible.
They have achieved this using a delightful blend of silk & S150’s wool from Italy’s E. Thomas Mill whilst also keeping the suit unlined and unconstructed.
As with many Suitsupply creations there are little details that further enhance the joy in what you are buying. The Navy coloured Havana suit trousers come in a straight cut and feature side adjusters, something I really love as it gives the suit that little bit of a bespoke feel. On the jacket itself are real horn buttons accompanied by flap pockets, notched lapels and pleated shoulders. This distinct shoulder finish not only introduces a Neapolitan tailoring feel but adds broadness to your shoulders as well.
What Suitsupply have created here then is undoubtedly an incredible outfit. Breathable and adaptable it is an ensemble that doesn’t sacrifice any of the classic suiting touches. In addition and importantly, the Worlds Lightest Suit (WLS) is also a highly flexible piece to have in the wardrobe. It is ideal for wearing to the office with a shirt and tie or splitting up and wearing more casually. The jacket would go wonderfully well with a fresh white t-shirt and blue denim jeans. This is similar for the trousers. Just add a white t-shirt and fresh white trainers and you are good to go.
The Navy Havana (Worlds Lightest Suit) from Suitsupply is priced at £699 and is available to buy in store and online now here. A fantastic price for a stand out piece of tailoring to keep you cool in the summer months.
