Whether you are looking to buy a custom suit for work, or buying a suit off the rack, there are many aspects to the suit that you need to take into consideration. In one of our past posts, I gave a complete guide to buying a bespoke suit and briefly talked about the fabric each suit is made of. Elaborating on this topic is important for a number of reasons. There are many different fabrics that suits can be made out of and they all have different pros and cons. Some suits wrinkle more than others, some are more durable, and others have different breathability. The fabric also plays a big role in how a suit is priced. For example, silk suits and cashmere suits are relatively expensive because of how soft and comfortable they are. We’ll take a deeper dive into the various fabrics that make up the majority of suits.
Similar to cashmere, silk suits are incredibly comfortable and extremely expensive. Silk suits are great in any environment. They make the wearer feel warm in the winter and stay cool during the summer. Silk can be blended with wool or cotton to decrease the price. Silk suits typically cost a couple thousand dollars and are sure to turn heads!
