The Suits of the Month: June

by

Maximilian Mogg

Today we will present you with further suggestions for what to wear in the upcoming months.

Crispaire – Light blue chalk stripe by Holland & Sherry

A little, light blue little dream of Holland & Sherry.

Crispaire from Holland & Sherry is a fine new addition to our repertoire here at Maximilian Mogg. It is the ideal fabric for a travel suit as it is very breathable, very soft, and quite crease resistant, while the appearance remains smart. Our current love affair is with the light blue chalk stripe. We recommend commissioning a single-breasted two-piece suit. We imagine the trousers to be cut wide through the leg, with a high rise, two forward pleats, and a high turn-up. The jacket of our dreams features wide notch lapels, three slanted flap pockets (with one being a ticket pocket, of course), and only one closing button. A white cotton pinpoint with French cuffs and a silver knitted tie will round out the look. The finishing touches can be applied by some light blue OTC socks and dark brown penny loafers.

Smexy!

A two-piece suit cut from the Holland & Sherry fabric above will come to about €1400, with the shirt costing another €200. For the perfect pair of loafers, we recommend paying a visit to our friend Mr. Leonard Kahlcke.

Linen – Pink Herringbone by Dugdale Bros & Co.

The Pink Gatsby.

Linen is your best friend for the hotter months of June, July, and August. Instagram is replete with tobacco brown linen suits (not that that is a bad thing). However, we suggest to be a bit bolder and opt for a pink double-breasted suit (a nod to Robert Redford’s Gatsby). The pink herringbone by Dugdale Bros & Co. (+-300g/m) is exactly how we like it. The trousers we would recommend remain wide through the leg, with a high rise, two forward pleats and a high turn-up, while the double-breasted jacket features straight flap pockets. We would combine it with a light pink shirt in a zephyr weave with a white tab collar and cuffs in a poplin. To complete your look, we would recommend a purple and burgundy striped regimental shantung silk tie. You could opt for some white OTCs to complement a pair of brown butterfly loafers for a louche look.

Gatsby!

The suit as described above in a Dugdale Bros linen will cost you around €1280. For the shirt, add 230 €. Our resident loafer expert is still the inimitable Leonard Kahlcke.

Extravagant Merino Wool – Grey Zigzag from Dashing Tweeds

Have some fun!

Some nights are reserved for extravagance. For just such nights, we recommend this grey zigzag from Dashing Tweeds. This merino wool fabric is relatively heavy (580g/m) and in a tight weave, so this is reserved for slightly cooler evenings, although the jacket can almost be commissioned unlined. For a slight twist, we recommend a one-button jacket with peak lapels, and fabric-covered buttons. Maybe throw in two slanted piped pockets. We know of an anthracite mohair fabric from Standeven that would complement such a jacket perfectly (wide leg, high rise trousers with forward pleats, and high turn-ups, procédure habituelle), accompanied by a black voile shirt with barrel cuffs sans tie. Black silk OTCs and Belgian loafers (or Opera pumps for the true experts) will give your look just the right amount of luxury.

Extravagant!

A jacket in a Dashing Tweed comes to approximately €990. The trousers in Standeven mohair are 450€. No one makes better silk stockings than Pantherella and they are from Maximilian Mogg for €30. No one quite makes a Belgian loafer like London’s Baudoin & Lange and our friend Korbinian Ludwig Heß is our resident opera pump expert. MM/DC
