You had me at hello.

The moment summer rolls around we’re presented with a never-ending array of cotton suits from untold amounts of brands, so when one turns up that makes an immediate impression, you know you’re onto a winner. This one, by Luigi Bianchi Mantova, had me hooked at first glance. Nothing turns me off quicker than a shiny, slick finish on my menswear, so this suit’s matte cotton, with its aged seams, heavy pick-stitching and great tan colorway is exactly what I’m after. It’s the type of suit I’d wanna break up and wear separately – the jacket with navy pants; the pants rolled up over canvas sneakers with a pale blue oxford – but every now and again, on a special occasion, I’d dress it up with a crisp white shirt, dark knit tie and navy bucks, as per the picture at right. It’s all about the options, and I have just one, here. Buy.
