The perfect navy suit
A mid/dark blue pure wool fabric with a discrete herringbone pattern, that lets the light dance over the cloth to create some depth in the colour. Wide notch lapels and a 3 roll 2 buttoning that gives a strong silhouette when combined with the overall slim cut. High armholes for mobility and a soft spalla camicia, that follows the lines of your shoulders perfectly, allowing a natural and comfortable look. A narrowly, but not tightly, cut trouser with a 5,5 cm cuff to add some weight. This helps create a smooth line along the leg. A higher rise on the trousers will also help to elongate your the overall silhouette .
Get those things right, and you’ll have a suit that will serve you well in almost every setting and on almost every occasion.
My perfect navy suit is from G.abo Napoli, available at Spiga 3 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
