Four Fabrics Perfect for a Daytime Wedding Suit

24 July, 2017

The daytime wedding opens up a wide range of lighter fabric colours usually overlooked for a suit. We are going to run through four fabrics perfect for a daytime wedding.

Tips for constructing a lightweight and cool daytime suit

- Add two side vents at the back of the jacket

- Consider making your suit shoulders a 'natural' fit (no padding - less weight and structure equals a cooler suit)

- Keep the back lining to 1/3 or 1/4 linings (allows better ventilation in the suit)

The Light Grey Suit

Use fabric 13, a Super 100's light grey wool blend fabric. As one of our lighter toned grey fabrics, it is perfect to add the casual vibe needed for a daytime suit. Keep it pretty simple and well cut. Notch lapels, single breasted and slanted pockets will do.

The Coffee Blazer

Fabric 98 is a rich caramel coffee coloured fabric in Super 100's 100% Wool. It would create a beautiful blazer to be paired over smart navy trousers (try fabric #16). For further inspiration on Mixing Blazers and Trouser read our InSider article.

The Prince of Wales Coffee Blazer

Despite bearing close resemblance to the above outfit, we simply could not go past our beautiful fabric #62. It is lighter coffee tone than fabric #98 mentioned above, however, it has a quaint yet distinctive Prince of Wales pattern running through its Super 100's Wool/Cashmere fabric. You could pair it with a crisp white shirt and navy trousers, or take the European option and pair the jacket with light beige chino's and a crisp white Oxford shirt.

The Spot On Blue Blazer

Our fabric #84 is a beautiful and vibrant blue 100% linen creating a beautiful and distinctive colour and texture ideal for a sports jacket or blazer. Make it a single-breasted blazer, with notch lapels and patch pockets (side and breast pockets). Pair this blazer with some white chino's, smart brown Mantorii Oxfords and a blue shirt like The Carlos or The Riviera.
