The Tan Suit

Considered by many as one of the essential Summer must-haves, the tan suit is often left out of the equation by most men. A great alternative to natural or white linen, a tan suit in lightweight cotton gabardine fabric is the perfect choice for warmer days. It shows that your style adapts to seasonal changes, straying from traditional navy and grey, without compromising any sharpness whatsoever. This look bears a special meaning for me, as most elements were passed down to me by my dad…the suit, loafers and cufflinks were all part of his wardrobe at a given time. 

As a more conservative gentleman, the color and fit of the suit didn’t quite suit his style and I was lucky enough to “inherit” it. Despite its more traditional aesthetic, with 3 buttons and slightly structured shoulder, all it took were a couple of alterations at my tailor to give it an updated feel and new found life. The leather loafers by Tods have been around for about 15 years and a quick refurbishment at my cobbler was enough to get them looking brand new… just goes to prove that investing in quality pieces is worth it. A crisp white shirt and the right choice of accessories, such as the royal blue hand-rolled silk tie, paisley pocket square, tortoise shades, white panama and bracelets convey an added panache to the whole ensemble.

Details: suit by Prada, dress shirt by Cremieux, loafers by Tods, panama by Original Panama, shades by Linda Farrow Luxe, silk tie by Exquisite Trimmings, pocket square by Add-On, cufflinks by Givenchy and bracelets by Viola Milano.
