1 Piece/3 Ways: Caramel Fresco Suit

1 Piece/3 Ways: Caramel Fresco Suit

Every Articles of Style suit is designed so that the components can also be worn as a separate jacket, trouser and vest.

We created the “1 piece/3 ways” series to give you some ideas on how you can style a timeless suit for different occasions; so you can get the most out of your garments and learn to build a sustainable wardrobe with style.

In this edition our friend Dane shows you 4 ways to wear our Fresco Suit in Caramel.

1. All Business

Nothing like a three-piece suit.

With the caramel color, think about pairing it with greens, browns, blues, beiges.

I also find a very pale gray shirt to be underrated - I prefer it to pink or lavender (which a lot of classic menswear guys push).

2. Wedding Season

Fresco is strictly a lightweight fabric, known for its breathability in hot and humid temperatures. It might be the lightest fabric in all of menswear. 

For that reason, we usually recommend also choosing a lighter color (fresco has been developed in a very wide range of colors, as it's been a popular choice in classic menswear for decades). 

The caramel color, for example, screams Spring/Summer and looks right at home in warm desert-y places like Los Angeles (where we shot this).

3. Business Casual

Pair the fresco suit trousers with an oxford shirt and a casual jacket (like this vintage trucker) for a perfectly "business casual" look.

4. Nightlife

Pair it with a black t-shirt and black low-top sneakers for a party in the Hollywood Hills or a late night out wherever you haunt.

Thanks, as always, for reading.

Yours in style,

Dan Trepanier
