Highlights include luxury cloths, high-twist yarns and a colour palette of cool greys and summer blues.
The Travel Suit
The collection is epitomised by the new travel suit.
Luxurious to the touch and beautifully styled, it is made in a crisp hi-twist worsted cool wool - creases just drop out.
Unstructured for a softer, more relaxed fit, the travel suit is available in light grey or steel blue.
It features patch pockets and side adjusters on the trousers (who needs belts when passing through airport security).
Luxury comes to the fore with an ink-blue suit in baby alpaca and kid-mohair, cool to the touch and with a drape that flatters the body it is perfect for any special summer occasion.
The Morning Suit
The biggest summer occasions are weddings and whether you are groom, best-man or guest you are going to want to look your best.
If the invitation says morning suits then Chester Barrie’s is lighter than the average – always good on hot summer days.
Team it with striped trousers and a coloured, waistcoat for a great wedding look. If you are the groom, best man or usher then the colour of the waistcoat is more than likely chosen by the bride. But if you are a guest you may be able to choose any colour you fancy - but do check on the invitation for any colour codes.
and the beautiful silk/cotton seersucker in blue or ecru.
And for evening events try the French navy dinner jacket with a shawl collar and matching waistcoat.
On a more relaxed note, jackets come in linen, silk and cotton blends as well as in lightweight wools.
The standout piece is the navy wool/silk/linen jacket
It feels lightweight but still benefits from some body and structure, lending shape to the wearer
It is a modern take on the blazer and can be worn with jeans, cotton trousers or even tailored shorts.
Summer shirts are either cotton/linen blends – lightweight but less susceptible to creasing – or else fully fashioned in cotton pique: the season’s must have shirt.
