Men's summer outfits guide part 2

Characteristics of a summer suit, number 4:

Half-lined jacket denotes that the back does not have any lining except for the top, and fully unlined usually means that there is no lining except in the sleeves. In southern Italy, you can find suits without sleeve lining for maximum coolness. However, your sleeve may not always look as nice because your shirt sleeve sticks to the suit sleeve and can restrict movement. Hence, a sleeve lining is a good idea unless you live in tropical climates.

Characteristics of a summer suit, number 5:

Once you have settled on an open-weave, you can turn to choose the weight of your suiting fabric. Fortunately, modern high-quality fabrics have a beautiful finish, and although the drape is not perfect, they are still the way to go.  7 ounces (210 grams) summer fabrics usually have very open weaves and you should seek out specific summer fabrics for summer suits, because even though some fabrics may be lightweight, the weave may be too dense for summer.

Characteristics of a summer suit, number 6:

A popular summer fabric choice is Tropical. Basically, all big mills offer their take on it, and it is simply an open weave worsted wool fabric. It is generally softer than fresco but also not as breathable. Overall, it is a good choice, but if you want increased airflow you have to go with something else. Another great summer suiting fabric is the Fresco fabric.

Linen for summer? number 1:

Linen is a classic summer fabric because of its light weight, open weave, and casual fabric structure. It is usually a little coarser than fine merino wool or cotton fibers and it wrinkles graciously. After a day wearing a linen suit, you will appear anything but dapper, although some people like this nonchalant look during the summer.
