This fabric, created for overcoats or caban coats, is inspired by vintage fabrics, as demonstrated by the bouclé yarn, which was popular in the 1970s for three-dimensional, dynamic coats for men. As the yarn is more complex, so the designs are proportionately larger and the uneven texture makes the fabric less austere. The three-dimensionality is often underlined by colour contrasts which vary from natural, country hues to sophisticated, warm tones.
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.
