As elegant as casual gets, our Madison Suit represents the epitome of soft tailoring. Both easy-wearing and sharp, it’s what the Italian courtier, diplomat, and author Baldassare Castiglione must have had in mind when he coined the term sprezzatura to describe effortless nonchalance. The fabric, which comes to us from Italy’s famed Subalpino Mill, is a comfortable cotton blend in a light blue seersucker with a subtle texture.
Our Traveler Suit is our most on-trend suit body as it combines soft tailoring–the easy-to-wear yet smart-looking aesthetic perfected by Neapolitans–with a relaxed, elastic-waisted trouser that has a concealable drawcord. The padding and interior canvas that can make a coat feel stiff have been stripped out in favor of a natural shoulder, slightly nipped waist and a butterfly lining (a lining that covers the top ¼ of the coat). The result is a suit coat that’s easy to slip on and off, and one that accentuates the wearer’s natural physique. Design details include a three-into-two-button front (meaning two buttons are visible, while a third is behind the lapel fold), a double-vent in the back, patch hand pockets, and a chest pocket. The fabric is a cotton seersucker fabric with just a hint of stretch. As the fabric is all one color, the ridges of the seersucker are only visible close up.The jacket can be worn on its with denim and chinos or as a complete look together with the matching pair of Seersucker Pants.
The Madison Drawstring is our casual take on the tailored trouser — a non-suit suit pant with all the comfort of a pull-on, plus a little extra panache. These are crafted from a comfortable cotton seersucker with a subtle texture, woven in Italy. An elastic waist (with a concealable drawstring) leads to a relaxed fit through the thighs before tapering to the ankle; the single pleat at the top keeps things comfortable but elegant. They work just as well on the weekend with a humble hoodie as they do in the office with a button-down and sport coat (there’s a matching one, if you’re in the market for a head-to-toe look).
