Wool is the most popular fabric choice in suiting and jackets due to its versatility and refined aesthetics. Common wool types include tweed, flannel,cashmere, merino and worsted. The style and drape of the garments always look best with 100% wool. Wool will drape naturally and mould to your body over time. However, 100% wool suit might be too warm to be worn in the summer.
Cotton fabrics suits all body types and those wanting a semi formal look to outdoor events. It is a popular choice if you like natural fibres. Linen and cotton fabrics are breathable, lightweight, natural and stylish. Sports jackets and blazers can be made from cotton to give a more casual look. Similar to linen in that it creases and keeps you cooler in the summer.
Linen fabric is super lightweight and maintains its coolness in soaring temperatures. It is the nature of this fabric to wrinkle and stretch easily. Dark blue or grey linen suits in 100% linen or linen blend with cotton or wool is a great option if you are having a formal occassion during summer.
