553.721/2 - Vitale Barberis Canonico
Day wear
The colour of the physical fabric may not perfectly match that shown in the photograph.
By choosing this fabric, it is possible to create the perfect all-year-round suit, capable of looking elegant in any season. Its considerable weight of 410 g is the result of using a 4-ply yarn in both warp and weft, created from 21 micron wool, thus guaranteeing the characteristic crease resistance. The plain weave gives the fabric lightness, so it is also ideal for summer suits provided they are unlined. For those who love to break down barriers, its composure makes it suitable also for informal evening events in the darker colours.
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.
