This is a new kind of suit!
A summer utopia, anyone?
The warm weather is upon us and we are struggling hard with our sartorial choices. Oh yes the heat, the sweat patches and the never ending hunt for temperature control areas is taking a toll over our daily grind. The most common menswear piece which takes a major hit during this time is the suit. We fret at the idea of wearing a suit in this sweltering Indian Summers. The need for a suit on certain occasions is still valid but we compromise by wearing something mediocre and look like an a**hole. We could not digest the fact that our beloved suit shall die a virgin this summer. The urge to sustain the most powerful weapon in a man’s arsenal led us to twist the definition and the dimension of summer suits. Presenting to you a new spin on summer suit and we are loving it. Our new summer suit comes with sleeveless jackets, yes you heard us the first time.
The most common pain point of a suit during summers was the feeling of being engulfed in a full sleeve jacket, however light or summer friendly the fabric may be. Suits for formal occasion like your offices (if you are banker, lawyer or a stock market juggler) or your business junkets will still remain the same, but this one is for more semi- formal, relaxed ambience. We took off the sleeves and cut it on summer loving fabrics like light weight cotton and linens to keep you cool. This is a new wave of summer suits and we want you to pay attention when we list down the 5 best suits for the summer.
This off-white summer suit comes with a shawl lapel waistcoat with strings and a relaxed fit, co-ordinated trousers to make you an instant season boss. The soft linen will ensure you are keeping it cool. Wear it to your day affairs in the city or to events were they always expect you to be sharply dressed, and you shall never disappoint them. Never.
The machismo of a grey suit cannot be ignored. We injected the same into our sleeveless grey suit. This one comes with a subtle herringbone pattern and is cut on light weight cotton for sweat free season ahead. The sleeveless jacket is a classic Nehru Jacket and is apt for preliminary functions of your best friend’s big wedding. Pair this with a black or any dark coloured mandarin collared shirt or a round neck t-shirt and you are ready to exude some serious sartorial vibes.
We are betting top dollars on this colour to be one of the most sought after at Mr Button. The laid back vibes of this summer suit is in sync with our new summer story, Poetic Justice. The sleeveless jacket gives you the ability to break this powder blue coloured piece to be worn individually with white or black trousers. We advocate going for the full suit for maximum impact. The soft shade of this colour is something which will beat the heat and you will be considered to be someone who knows the rule of summer tailoring.
We call it English Lavender, some call it Lilac but the cool factor of this suit is definitely it’s colour. Deriving it from a poetic state of mind, this suit is sure to turn some heads for all the good reasons. Match it with a dark shirt or go for a white number for total warm weather dominance. The sharp cut of this suit will never go out of sync and shall keep you going when the mercuries start to go topsy-turvey.
Linen has been the official summer fabric and we are going with it’s flow. This suit is a textured one cut on soft linen and should be instantly made a staple. The trousers can be worn separately due to it’s drawstrings factor and the jacket can easily be broken with your denims or a blue coloured trouser. As said before, the suit will carry maximum punch.
Summer suits are something which is a novel idea and we certainly believe that it shall make a deep impact. The Indian summer is getting into a mad frenzy but why should it stop us from wearing menswear’s biggest asset. Try a summer suit this time around and you may thank us later!
