Layering for Spring (and Beyond)

Guys, it’s finally time to gear up for Spring! One of the hallmarks of the season is its fluctuating temperatures, not to mention its characteristically volatile weather patterns – “April showers,” and all that. In the morning, it may be one temperature, in the afternoon another, and in the evening a totally different one. We’ve done our part to prepare you for warm weather by offering lighter fabrications and seasonal textiles such as wool, silk, and linen blends. So now it’s time to talk about how to layer clothes, an essential part of any sartorial strategy. Lightweight separates layer in warmth when you need it and remove easily when you don’t. Below, a quick look at some cool ways to pull it all together.

Selecting Your Suit Fabric

When it comes to suiting fabrics, it’s easy to think of wool at one end of a spectrum and cotton at the other. In this line of thinking, wool is only for fall and winter (except for those dullards who think wool is the only fabric appropriate for business and sweat in it all through July and August), and cotton is only for summer.

In fact this couldn’t be more untrue, as the type of fabric is meaningless until you qualify it with weight and weave.

So heavyweight cottons like corduroy, cavalry twill and moleskin are actually cold-weather fabrics, while wool can come in weights as low as five ounces and… Continue>>
