Suits come in many different types of fabrics. Each of these fabrics has their own unique pattern which can help you identify the suit with ease. Some of the patterns are better suited for men of a certain body type. After all it’s all about choosing the right suit made up of the appropriate fabric just for you!
This particular fabric has endured the test of time. It was originally worn by Scottish shepherds as a garment of woven cloth. It gathered more popularity in the 1930s and 1960s when fashion icons, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Emporio Armani all used this type of fabric in their collections.
This fabric is usually formed up of dark or earthly colors. It is most commonly seen in black and white or brown and tan. This pattern is formed by a rotation of four dark and four light threads. This creates the 4 different points in the fabric. This complex weave has remained quite stylish over the decades and it doesn’t look like it’s going to disappear anytime soon.
Due to its lightweight, this type of twill fabric is ideal for the summertime. Unlike the Houndstooth, the pick-and-pick style of weave only uses two alternating color threads. It is also referred to as Sharkskin. When seen from from a distance, the weave has a sort of glimmering effect. This is due to the quality of the fine yarn combined with other yarn types.
The pinstripe is another classic suit fabric. Due to its fine lines, pinstripes come with added benefits. They make the wearer appear taller and make a more heavyset man appear thinner by drawing attention away from the midsection. You can never go wrong with a navy pinstripe suit, it’s an instant classic!
