J. Crew Navy Ludlow Two Button Cotton Chino Suit – $366.00
Why not? Why not a Navy Cotton Chino Suit? Who says all of our darker suits must be made of board-room ready wool? Most of what we wear is cotton. It’s comfortable. It breathes. It feels good against your skin. And even your nicest of clothes should feel good against your skin. ESPECIALLY your nicest clothes.
We have a theory. Men don’t dress well anymore because of two reasons:
1. They buy stuff that’s the wrong size and/or fail to get it tailored
2. The Fabric usually sucks.
A Navy cotton chino suit in a modern slim cut like this one from J. Crew is the solution. And don’t be afraid to wear it during the colder months. Just because it’s under 60 degrees doesn’t mean you can’t wear a cotton suit… just make it a darker shade and keep your tie subdued.
Yes, wool is traditional. Wool is great. But sometimes cotton, even when it’s in a dark suit, can be king.
