  • Wool/silk clothing - seasonal?

    That's basically my question. I have a fall/winter jacket from SS that is wool/silk and is obviously seasonal, but I was looking at some trousers that were 35 silk/65 wool and I couldn't figure out if this makes them more of a seasonal fabric?

    I wouldn't think of silk blend as a fall/winter only, except if the weight, texture, color, etc. warrants it.

    AoS has posted a bit on summer tweeds, etc. that could be of interest to you:

      Thanks, those are great articles. Some of those ensembles just look ridiculously awesome. Not to be confused.. but does that mean worn righr that this jacket could still be pulled off during the cooler spring days? I've been weary to pull it out since the trees started to bud.

        AoS is pretty out there, in terms of being non-business styling of their suiting for the most part. Some good stuff for inspiration though, even if you don't take it to their levels.

        I've never been able to see fabrics on SuSu's website well, outside of the close ups. To me that texture could be linen or tweed or herringbone, etc. Just know it's light grey.

          Yeah, that style is really attractive to me. I have a uniformed job, so non-business styled suiting isn't something that really concerns me too much, I guess.

          It's tweedish. Very light delicate tweedish though. It's more of a subtle light loose weave than it is tweed. Similar to the close up AoS had of the silk/linen tweed. Half lined also.
