    Lightbulb What do you want? Custom summer clothing

    Hey guys,

    Ray here from Suitable (www.suitablenyc.com).

    A lot of times companies huddle in their corner and project what they think people want. We were talking today as a team and thought, why don't we ask you guys?

    What would you like for custom summer clothing?
    • De-constructed cotton jackets?
    • Linen jackets?
    • Suit-kinis?


    No pressure, just thought we would ask!

    Personally, I prefer tropical weight wool or a linen-cotton blend to a linen jacket. With pure linen, the wrinkles are just too much. I also prefer a breathable, lightweight lining on a summer jacket compared to none; having the shell directly in contact with my shirt can lead to some unfortunate sweat transfers.

    Chambray or linen shirts are also really just the best in hot weather.

    Edit: Before I forget, Seersucker is also a godsend when it gets up over 85 degrees. An absolute godsend. A seersucker jacket lined in linen would be a no-brainer for a nice every-day sports jacket in the summer.

    Never ventured into MTM clothing before, but I have a couple lusts on my list for summer. If the design was right I would totally bite.

    navy or medium grey lightweight wool partially lined blazer. I'm thinking like a loose hopsack. Both patch pockets and a 3/2 lapel would be a plus.

    A solid white or light blue linen shirt with a collar substantial enough to support a tie.

    I agree with @Aaron P., a linen/cotton combo is ideal to make a less wrinkly fabric. I do love anything in linen/cotton with breathable lining.

    I've a linen-wool blend SS suit. Great summer material that breathes really well here in the summer. The wool really helps with the wrinkles.

    I like serious colored suits, i.e - navy, grey, etc, (with micro patterns, birdseye, houndstooth, etc,) in summer fabrics. Very hard to find.

    Waistcoats, I know not exactly what people think of, when they think of summer. But it is something I want, and have difficulty finding, especially with options like double breasted with lapels.
