As the weather in DC has become more humid and hotter, Suit Supply has introduced The World’s Lightest Suit into its 2019 collection. The company has reimagined its adaptable Havana fit to create a new unlined and completely unconstructed suit. A perfect addition for those hot DC summer months.
Alongside staples like flap pockets, notched lapels and a pleated shoulder, the suit is elevated with refined accents like full AMF stitching and genuine horn buttons on the jacket, while the accompanying flat-front trousers feature side adjusters and a straight leg—The result is a remarkably breathable and lightweight wear that doesn’t skimp on the classic suiting touches.
Cut from luxe silk and ultra-fine S150’s wool by the acclaimed E. Thomas mill in Italy, the WLS comes in at a feathery 525g (1.15 lbs)—compared to the average 1030 grams (2.27 lbs.) for traditional suits. The slim-tailored fit is a versatile summer essential that works as well with a dress shirt and tie as it does with a T-shirt and jeans.
Suit Supply started in the Netherlands in 2000. In 2012, the DC location became its third location in the United States, behind New York and Chicago. The company has experienced remarkable growth and in 2016 opened a Tysons Galleria location. The well made modern and classic looks has made Suit Supply a top DC place to shop for men.
