A Suit That Fits Blog
A short description about your blog
As we approached NZ's Auckland runway I pondered whether I'd discovered the perfect travel companion - my wonderful partner and mother of my unborn child aside that is - my new linen jacket , flannel trousers and a summer checks shirt ensemble were just the ticket.
My blue sports jacket is half-lined, in bright yellow satin, providing a more relaxed fit and is also cut generously around the waist and across the back to make it easier to remove mid-flight. Cut from our heavier linen range of cloth it provides not only the necessary pockets for passport, mobile phone and pen, required for travelling, but also an extra layer (I often find airlines far too hot mid-flight these days) and looks better the more crumpled it becomes, which is less than it's lighter weight stable mate.
The yellow contrast stitching on the button hole and also the cuff give it a hint of I'm off on a summer holiday, but I'm British so let's not get carried away about it, and match the internal lining and piping - a nice touch I thought, especially when fellow passengers are treated to a flash each time it is taken on and off.
The linen's inky blue colour is a perfect contrast for my camel coloured flannel trousers, which I enjoy wearing for travel - it also works well with jeans, not to mention the shorts which ironically I had made before I had the jacket made, pictured - and provide comfort and warmth before take-off when the air-con is turned on full blast.
The shirt is made from our summer checks collection cloth and is incredibly lightweight, does not crease easily and the brown and blue colourway could not compliment the jacket and trousers more perfectly.
