Wear your seasonal midnight blue, brushed twill suit with, for example, a white T-shirt and our ‘SN01 midnight blue light suede’ sneakers.
The twill weave is one of the textile industry’s most versatile, known for its characteristic fine diagonal ribbing. Silk, meanwhile, is the strongest fiber made by nature, and the most widely chosen fabric for ties and pocket squares. It is largely wrinkle-resistant, with a nice, soft drape. Our silk hails exclusively from Como, in Northern Italy, where silkworms nest in the region’s abundant mulberry trees. (Which is why this region has been a silk-production powerhouse since the 15th century.) This is a fabric suitable for casual and formal occasions alike.
Ideal for summer shoes, this flexible chrome-tanned calfskin from Italy complements its supple hand with a short nap that adds a touch of softness that stops just short of your usual suede. Just rub your hand against the Light Suede’s natural grain to bring out the richness of this texture.
