Calvin Klein Cotton Suit Jacket and Matching Pants – $190
Maybe you’ve noticed that there’s been quite a few light cotton summer suits posted in the last few weeks. Some were expensive, some were middle of the road, some were downright dirt cheap.
What you don’t know is that I’ve been searching online for one in particular. The only one I’ve found that combines the best of all three (fit, price, and quality) and it’s been driving me insane because I can’t find it.
I tried it on in a Dillards about a month ago. It was a Calvin Klein. Light gray, almost white. Two button blazer that came in S, M, L, and XL, matched with a pair of Calvin Klein Dylan pants. Unlike a lot of CK department store suits, the jacket had perfect natural contours to it. Perfect to the point that a 5’10 165lb guy like me wouldn’t have to get it tailored. The fabric was extremely nice. Mainly cotton with only a little linen in it that gave it a summery texture.
I snapped a quick pic with my cell, hung it back on the rack, and never saw it again.
I checked Dillards.com. Not even a mention of it. CalvinKlein.com appeared to have it, but only XL jackets despite it being a “new arrival.” I couldn’t find this damned-yet-perfect suit for the life of me. The ongoing search was getting impossible. Yeti in Cario impossible. So I gave up.
And last night I stumbled across what could very well be the same suit on Macys.com, which I had checked weeks before. That, and it was on sale for $60 off. Under $200.
Dr. Livingston I presume?
Macys.com says both the pants and jacket are cotton, not cotton linen blend. Their Amazon store mentions that the pants do in fact have some linen in them. So that’s a good clue there. The pants and jacket never appear on the same page, but the color options on both seem to match up. The model looks like he’s wearing the “Canvas” color, and the original jacket I picked up is the more gray “Canon” shade.
Here’s my question to you. Is this a match?
