Drawing on History for Summer Suits and Blazers

It’s getting hot outside, so we’re starting to think about what kinds of fabrics work for custom garments in the summer time. Obviously overcoats are out across the board because you would have to be a madman to wear a heavy coat out in this weather. But there are still some great, lightweight and breathable options when it comes to suits and blazers.

We’ve turned to history for some fabric and color inspiration. Check out the white corduroy suits on Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin below.
