When you hear “Sharkskin,” it likely conjures up iconic imagery from its heyday in the 1960’s, when it was the favorite of cool characters like the Rat Pack and even Elvis. It also saw renewed popularity in the 80’s, with its stereotypical boxy silhouette and shiny appearance from synthetic fibers. Well, forget everything you think you know about this fabric! Today’s Sharkskin is an updated, modern, super refined interpretation that has all the coolness of its prior iterations and none of the clunkiness.
Sharkskin is one of our featured Spring 2017 fabrics, and this season we’re offering some truly special styles, like our brand new luxury Sharkskin suit separates and our ever-popular Sharkskin pants. First, however, a brief primer!
