Winter Suits Melbourne

The colder months Melbourne can be a little intolerable, but it no where near as cold a London or European winter.  For this reason, we usually don’t need to look at heavy cloth for winter suit options.  Rather we prefer to layer up with a waistcoat, overcoat or trench coat.  Having said that, a suit with a 300 gram cloth is quite beautiful item to have in the wardrobe, particularly a wool cashmere blend from Lainificio Cerruti.

The two options photographed here, in a  rich brown and navy blue are absolute stunners.  The navy is nice and classic whilst the brown adds some real warmth to otherwise dreary Melbourne look.  The double breasted waist coat with a shawl collar lapel is a real statement piece, designed to keep you warm in the cooler months, but this particular suit can be worn as a two piece for at-least 6 months of the year and doubles beautifully as a sports jacket if need be.

The navy blue suit is from the same Cashmerlight Collection from Lanificio Cerruti.  It has 10% cashmere woven through the wool for added softness and warmth.  I love working with this cloth as it has such a beautiful drape and is durable.  I have played around with the details a little on this one, adding patch pockets and a two and half button (or as the Italians say ‘tre su due”) option for a point of difference.  Still very corporate but with a touch of personality.

The sports jackets in this series is from Filarte, another Italian mill hailing from Biella.  Filarte have focused on very classic cloth designs for a long time, but have recently updated their collections with some more contemporary options.  I love this blue and burgundy check in a wool and cashmere blend.  Different colours pop depending on your shirt and tie combination, allowing a great deal of versatility when dressing up or dressing down the jacket.  The winter staple with a touch of flair and personality.  There are other colour options in this same pattern should you wish to design your very own.
