Cotton suit - the most versatile suit

The cotton suit might be one of the most underappreciated garments in men's summer wardrobe. Despite that I had for a long time been thinking about getting one commissioned for myself. Today I am taking a look at the result. A suit might sometimes sound like the last thing you want to put on during hot and sunny summer days. There are still many ways to cool down the look and make it appropriate for the weather. First of all by choosing lightweight fabrics and unlined models one can fight the hear.

Tomorrow it's already August so whether we like it or - soon the season for this light and vivid cloth is at least here in Finland almost over.
