Bring the Pane

February 15th, 2016

The only thing smoother than a windowpane suit is a windowpane suit in a beautiful textured fabric.

Our new windowpane hopsack is a very rare blend of wool and silk that’s woven into a lightweight hopsack. This dream fabric brings together the natural breathing properties of tropical wool, the luxurious sheen of silk, and the wrinkle resistance of a hopsack weave. It’s elegant, traditional, and modern all at the same time – and that’s the type of versatility we love in a menswear fabric.

Here Will and I test drive our latest addition to the AOS Tailor Shop.

A tailored suit with a fitted cashmere turtleneck is a timeless combination that somehow always looks murderous and gentlemanly at the same time.

Traditionally the windowpane suit was not meant to be a bold or fashion-forward choice. It has an English seriousness about it, especially when combined with menswear classics like a white french cuff shirt, a wool crepe tie and a pair of black captoe oxfords.
