Our Legacy suiting
I’ve done quite a few posts banging on about suits in the past. Although I wear one only occasionally, I’ve got a cracking black, skinny-as-you-like number from Mui Mui that gets worn on special occasions and is always complimented. It’s not exactly casual though and I have been thinking that I’d like something that’s still quite formal but a bit more relaxed, fun even.
So when I saw the casual suiting (blazer and trousers as opposed to ‘suit’) that Our Legacy have knocked out for the Autumn/Winter season, I was rather interested.
Both of the above blazers are made from beautiful, premium 100% Italian virgin wool – the grey version being a mélange with a subtle blend of reds, yellows and blues running throughout it, and the navy blue being a plain (but certainly no less nice) twill.
They’re both single breasted, three button affairs, but the lapels are rolling, meaning they can be worn as a two-button with the lapel’s fully down or as a three button with the lapels up higher (a bit like my Cabourn Malory can be), making them both great for cold Autumn days when you want to be a bit more coverage.
Both also feature three outer patch pockets (two lower and a chest), four button cuffs (I don’t know if they work or not though), a single inner pocket and part lining with a white contrast taping on the inside center seam. There’s also matching trousers available for each (wouldn’t be suits without them, would they), in a regular fit and featuring a pleated front with zip fly and a pair of button closed rear pockets.
