The Up & Down: Slub Silk Tweed

The beauty of unstructured tailoring is that it turns a “business suit” into a “lifestyle garment”. So if you curate your wardrobe properly, you can pair your tailored items with everything in your closet, from power ties to your favorite beat-up jeans.

“The Up & Down” is a series where we showcase how an unstructured suit can be dressed-up for the office, or a special occasion, then broken-up into seperates and styled for the most casual settings.

Today we’re taking a closer look at a very unique fabric from our FW16 collection – the Slub Silk Tweed. This rare cloth is an intensely textured blend of silk (60%), worsted wool (36%), and cashmere (4%) woven in Italy with a spectacular mix of black, white and gray yarns. At a perfect 10 ounces, this fabric makes for an ideal “lightweight tweed” jacket that can be worn year-round with trousers, chinos, jeans…just about anything, really.

We’ve always loved the classic gentlemanly appeal of tweed – and we love it even more with this modern, rakish update.

Here are just two of the thousands of ways to style this type of fabric into your regular rotation.
