Tobacco Linen Double Breasted Suit

For Spring  Summer 2018 we propose a double breasted suit with turn up cuff trousers.

This summer suit is our Norton & Sons take on a continental classic.  The tobacco brown linen suit is made of 9oz Irish Linen.  Both light to wear and cooling, linen is a great cloth for summer tailoring.  Whether a day at the races, walking around town, or equally elegant while on a grand tour of the archaeological sites in the Cyclades.

Keeping it traditional in a 2x3 button double-breasted style with trousers that are slightly cropped and given a turn up to add a slight air or restraint on a cloth that will be anything but restrained after a day of wear.

We have styled this suit with a brown and white candy-striped poplin shirt, a burnt orange knitted silk tie and a lightly patterned cream handkerchief.   While styled here as a suit, the jacket is easily worn separately with a pale blue jeans, or the trousers with a baggy and messily tucked-in shirt.
