This extraordinarily fine cloth has been cut in a single button style with notched lapel and straight pockets. It is paired with a higher waisted trouser cut with a single forward pleats in a lightweight fine merino 'fresco' cloth in a chestnut and grey melange, the open 'fresco' weave being perfect for warmer autumn days.

The shirt which accompanies is a two-fold 100's hopsack weave in a pale fawn, worn with a dark chestnut wool and silk ottoman tie with a pale grey pocket handkerchief.  We also recommend that one's dog lead match the leather of one's shoes.
