This is the first suit I did for myself in Loro Piana WISH Super 170s. It is a 9.5 oz fabric so It will be comfortable for most of the year.
I generally wear 100s-130s so I wanted to experience a fine 170s to see how it feels and wears over time. That it is a gorgeous fabric - although flashier than my usual fare - did not hurt either.
For this suit I opted for small flashy details such as very subtle pickstitching across the shoulders and down the sleeves and back and mother of pearl buttons. The lining is solid navy bemberg with hand sewn purple edge stitching to pick up the color from the suit's stripe. I kept the main design of the suit very traditional with a 3 roll 2 medium width lapel, straight side pockets and a curved welt chest pocket. The trousers have side tabs in lieu of belt loops and 1.6 inch cuffs.
This is definitely not an everyday suit but I am definitely looking forward to opportunities to wear it.
Looks great! Pics wearing the suit would be appreciated.
