Today it was time to give my new grey workhorse suit a second wear. I really love the fit on this one. The spalla camicia shoulders follow a soft and natural line and it has the perfect setup of two horizontal front pockets and a chest pocket (I hate angled front pockets and ticket pockets). Also, the fit along my body was just spot on from the start saving me some green ones with the alterations. However, the best thing ever is the fabric. The suit has been made from Loro Piana’s Super 150 Tasmanian Wool, and it is just insanely soft and light to wear. Had the piece been made by some bigger brand than Cavaliere I don’t dare to even think how much it would have cost. Now for 40% off the price was very reasonable for the quality.
I decided to use it today with a light blue spread collar shirt, yellow grenadine tie from Ede & Ravenscroft and brown leather. Furthermore, I decided on a blue pocket square to keep the fantastic tie as a center piece.
The shoes are my C&J Hallams and the belt from Equus Leather. I did think of picking my rather sleek Cheaney loafers instead, but it just didn’t happen. Should there be one more a bit warmer day, I will probably use this with them and a more casual tie.
