Tropical wools or "cold wools" are fabrics made of worsted wool, with a light structure, and woven with a lesser thread count than usual. They are also breathable, thanks to their canvas weave that lets the air go by. Lastly, the tension that is given to the yarns gives the fabric less tendency to crease or wrinkle. Cold wool is ideal for spring and summer seasons but can actually easily be worn all year long, as wool has the specificity to let warmth out in summer, and to hold it in in summer.
The tropical wool we have chosen for our suit with a semi-traditional canvas is woven in Biella, North Italy, by one of the oldest woolen mills in the world with a history dating back to the XVIIth century. It is made out of a high quality blend of Australian wool and kid mohair from South Africa. The jacket comes with two trousers options : one is our large two-pleat trousers, with a classic construction and a contemporary fit, the other one is our easy trousers, with sportswear details and a more tapered leg.
