Checked Woollen Day Suit

20161221_norton_flyer_01_zoom_preview.jpg

This day suit is cut in 10/11oz merino worsted cloth in a subtly diffuse variation on the classic Glenurquhart check, woven in charcoal and two shades of grey. The cloth has a soft milled finish giving it the feel and appearance of a lightweight flannel.

The coat is cut in a simple 2 button style with straight jetted pockets with flaps.  Buttons are tonal and dark.  The trouser is cut generously with a single forward pleat, with a slight taper, and is finished with a permanent turn up.

The suit is worn here with a shirt sewn in 4oz pale grey end-on-end two-fold Egyptian cotton shirting, and a navy heavy wool and silk ottoman tie.

Here socks have been chosen to match the colour of the tie.  The coat could equally happily be worn with a odd trousers, in charcoal or either of the shades of paler grey.
