Our 16, 24 & 48 suit patterns are made from paper first before they are marked at the cloth using the French Chalk. This is the same proces we use for our shirts. For the 8 suit we use a plotted pattern.
The Sergio Rossi suit pics above illustrate a seldom-mentioned axiom of #menswear: the suit subdues where the odd jacket dandifies.
I find that you can get away with wearing patterns on a suit that would be much more difficult to pull-off in the context of an odd jacket fit.
Something about having the same fabric above and below makes the whole fit businesslike, despite the pattern itself being bold.
On the other hand, take an equally loud pattern on the jacket alone, pair it with even the plainest of gray trousers, and the whole fit will still come off as contrived.
I find that this normalizing power of the suit is not sufficiently highlighted in online discussions about loud patterns — which tend to focus on odd jacket fits of the variety seen at the Armoury or Pitti.
In my own personal exploration of patterns, I find myself increasingly drawn to bold PoW suits as a way to introduce a touch of individual style into an otherwise drab business environment.
With my recent NSM, LVSN and Ripense commissions, I feel more confident about using bold checks in a business context because they are ultimately still suits, so they pass the litmus test for acceptable business attire, just barely.
Perhaps one day I’ll feel more confident about wearing boldly checked SC’s in the workplace. But for now, I feel that workday odd jacket fits require more conservative SC fabrics — the mere fact of the odd pairing is dandified enough in a business context, IMHO.
