The Jacket (Hopsack)
This Brown Hopsack Senszio jacket is crafted from Vitale Barberis Canonico, made in Italy, and is a fine example of the simple yet beautiful Hopsack loose weave. Made from wool, the coarseness of the pattern creates a slight fuzz, muting shadows and lights that may otherwise cause you to look unkempt. Perfect for outdoor meetings or events where you may be slightly active, but still need to look your best.

The Trousers
The Super 150’s fabric from Reda is made from 100% virgin wool and really adds to the luster of these Navy trousers. Such a fine fabric, contrasts with the Hopsack Jacket allowing you to still maintain a kempt and stylish appearance when the jacket comes off in hot weather. All of Reda’s fabrics are sublime, but for those peculiar with their thread counts, can go for their Super 150s or Super 160s.

The Shirt
A white cotton shirt is never as simple as it seems. This bespoke example is from Thomas Mason’s classic 100% cotton Twill. Recently releasing their new 2018 Spring/Summer Collection, Thomas Mason has lifted from their aura of traditional styles to the bold and exotic. If you are looking for more depth to your white shirt, you can always go for one of their more adventures patterns, like the Oxford or Poplin.
