Southern California Living: Linen Suits in October

One of my favorite things about living in Southern California is being able to wear summer fabrics all year round. Therefore, when Suitopia reached out to me about designing a new custom suit, I immediately knew that I wanted to go with a pure linen fabric.

For starters, I knew that my wardrobe would need a major overhaul, especially since it feels like a New York summer in the middle of October.

Furthermore, I’ve always appreciated a quality linen suit because it’s one of the few suiting fabrics that can help you stay cool in the heat.

For this linen suit, I went with their Santino brown fabric, patch pockets, peaked lapels, lightly padded shoulders, and a 1.5 inch cuff on the trousers.

I guess you can call this the brown version of the suit that I wore to Pitti Uomo 92 this past summer!

Regardless of the season, the best thing to do when you’re rocking a linen suit is to simply embrace the wrinkles.

Wrinkles will always start to form on the sleeves, back, and behind the knees of your trousers. Therefore, instead of going overboard with the spray starch, just rock those wrinkles proudly and stay cool!
