This sophisticated fabric is designed principally for daytime summer suits, but as a result of its lustre, which comes from the worsted yarn with the addition of silk, it can also reinvent itself as an evening suit. Alongside the added silk organza thread, its special feature is the herringbone design obtained by means of the prunelle weave and which shows off the two different colours of both sides of the fabric with their unusual contrasts. The micro-design, which can only be seen from close up, adds a subtle three-dimensionality and refinement. This is the ideal suit for sophisticated, reserved gentlemen who love stylish details.
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.
