Frederick Thomas London Top Tips
MaterialsObviously a heavy tweed blazer isn't a signature look for spring, and with good reason! As striking and sophisticated heavy materials are, it's better to focus on more breathable materials. Surviving warmer temperatures in a suit is always going to be a challenge, so focusing on your suit materials is vital! Photo Credit: Pinterest
LinenA classic and celebrated suit material for the warmer seasons. It's lightweight breathable weave means it's one of the most popular materials to work with. Linen is made with the fibers of the flax plant which allows a beautiful visible weave and subtle natural texture. You can either go all the way with a full on linen suit, or alternatively just focus on single linen pieces, like a linen jacket, linen tie or linen pocket square. You definitely won't be hot under the collar with linen in your wardrobe! Photo Credit: Pinterest
CottonAnother great suit material to think about when sorting out your spring wardrobe. Cotton is a very versatile material, for either a casual or smart look, but always warm weather friendly! Cotton is famously breathable due to it's slacker tension weave in the fibers, meaning the materials hangs away from the body, allowing your skin to breath freely. Stay extra cool this season with a matching cotton tie and pocket square as well! Photo Credit: Pinterest
SeersuckerA less well known material, but still an essential for your spring wardrobe! Seersucker's signature striped and crinkled surface is perfect for making a fashion statement without working up a sweat! Seersucker is a unique cotton fabric which is ideal for breathability this spring! Photo Credit: Pinterest
FrescoDespite fresco being apart of the wool fabric family, it's still suitable for sunnier weather! Fresco wool is an entirely different story, the fabric is made from multiple stands of yarn, high-twisted wool with an open weave. Meaning that the fabric is actually very airy and perfect for warmer weather! A must for your spring wardrobe! After all the word fresco is derived from the Italian word 'alfresco', which translates to 'fresh' and 'in the open air'! Photo Credit: Pinterest
Last but not least, silk! Before your jump to conclusions, we're not suggesting a silk suit (does such thing even exists?!). It's hard to accessories your suit in the warmer weather, it seems conflicting to add more fabric and bulk to your suit when all you want to do is wear as little as possible! So, silk accessories are the perfect compromise. For example a silk pocket square are perfect for this season. The lightness of a silk pocket square is ideal for not bulking up your suit jacket.
