Rain Protection  

Stay Dry with Storm System by Loro Piana

By combining all of the advancements modern tailoring has to offer, Loro Piana presents the finest and most robust fabric for protection from the rain. Storm System is a three layer technical blend of wool or cashmere with Loro Piana’s proprietary fabric treatment. Using their patented Rain System,  water falls off any garment harmlessly.

This is a tremendous design that allows clients to wear the finest wool, vicuna and cashmere without sustaining damage from water. Whether its a light drizzle or torrential downpour, you can expect to find all of your garments dry and well insulated.

Adding to the quality of the garment, there is also ultra thin membrane separating the fabric and the lining to create wind protection, making the fabric more resilient during even the most aggressive storms. Perfect for those stormy days in New York, Chicago, London where looking your best is mandatory no matter the conditions.

Temperature Control 

Keep Out of the Heat with Cool Effect by Ermenegildo Zegna 

If your aim is to keep cool and conserve energy, and using a standard tropical wool may not be enough, we suggest the Cool Effect fabric collection by Ermenegildo Zegna. The renowned Italian Mill Ermenegildo Zegna serves as the leading example for luxury fabric and Cool Effect is the pinnacle of both performance and beauty.



The collection features a revolutionary treatment to treat their ultra fine Australian wool to provide the most protection under the intense summer heat. Using Cool Effect technology, the fabrics are more reflective of the sun’s rays and instead of absorbing into the cloth, Zegna Cool Effect fabric reflects up to 80% of the sunlight. This keeps you and the garment cool even in broad daylight.

Furthermore, it’s light weight composition makes for an even more enticing combination. Clocking in at just over 250 grams this is an exceptional tropical wool the extra sun protection provided by the cool effect technology makes this our go to favorite for bespoke suiting in the summer.
