Covert is a worsted batavia weave, of winter weight, clear-cut and compact. It is easily recognisable because of its clearly visible ribbing, steep diagonals and marbled effect. This latter is due to the jaspé warp, or it could also be mouliné, which gives it a lively, rustic appearance. The country character makes it similar to cavalry twill, but it is easily distinguished by its chromatic effect and single, not double, diagonal. Covert is suitable for trousers and jackets ranging from sport to informal. Olive greens, browns, ginger or grey, whatever the colour, in a Covert, it is always speckled.
After having worn your suit for an entire day, we advise taking it off and letting it rest on a hanger (preferably wood, with molded shoulder pieces). Before putting any suit in the closet you should air it out, avoiding exposure to direct sunlight if possible and brushing it with a natural-fiber brush. You should also clean off (if necessary) any food or beverage stains, which may attract destructive insects. Make sure the pockets are empty, and use potpourri bags with camphor or naphthalene as natural insect deterrents. We advise that you bring your suit to a drycleaner only when strictly necessary; due to the cleaning solvents they use, every dry cleaning weakens the natural fibers in your suit, altering its characteristics and reducing its useful lifetime. Beware of do-it-yourself ironing: your fabrics may become irreparably “shiny” as a result.
