Chester Barrie Christmas Gift Guide
CHESTER BY CHESTER BARRIE SS19 SUIT COLLECTION: COOL, CALM AND CALCULATED.
Rooted in the suave ways of Savile Row comes the Chester by Chester Barrie Spring/Summer 2019 suit collection.
Mixing a dash classic tailoring with some seasonal character this is a collection that will keep you looking cool, calm and collected throughout the summer.
Here are some of the highlights:
The standout feature of this collection is the use of semi-milled pure wool fabric to create a lightweight suit that feels soft to the touch and will keep you cool in the summer heat.
The Three Piece Suit
The very antithesis to the everyday suit, the three-piece is for men who want to dress-up – whether it is for a special occasion or just because you want to really cut a dash. The blend of wool and fine cashmere gives it an extra elegance that is discernible by touch and drape and as a three-piece it is the ideal choice for the summer “occasion” dressing - the option of removing the jacket to cool off with the waistcoat still on is an underrated bonus.
The Traveller Plus collection
Four suits and three shirts that will withstand the rigours of everyday life, whether you are jetting to Helsinki or crammed onto the 17.23 from Haslemere the Traveller Plus suit is the one for you – water repellent, stain resistant and with natural stretch it will see you through most situations.
The Hopsack Classic
For classic tailoring, whether it’s a suit for all occasions or a blazer to dress up or down you should look no further than the Chester by Chester Barrie selection. With a slightly looser weave and rich texture it is the perfect summer suit, not so lightweight as to be flimsy but avoiding the heft of other worsted cloths.
