Inspired by the master tailors and old rear guard of Italy’s rag trade, with their easy style and ability to make even casual clothing look sophisticated, the Custom Collection Summer Suit is as easy to wear as a pair of chinos - little wonder, as the suit is fashioned from soft cotton twill and available in either an 8 1/2oz or 11oz.

However, the similarities with the nation's favourite slacks stop there, as these are not slacks, but trousers in the truest sense. Replete with centre-creases, hip adjusters, single or double jetted hip pockets, slanted side pockets and a choice of either a zip fly, or a button fly.

A fishtail is also available for those who favour the added comfort of kidney warmers with their braces. The jacket features patch pockets on the hip but a welted breast pocket, so as not to exude the blazer style overly, but retain a suit jackets aesthetic. Notch lapels and a double vent galvanise the jackets intention to be suit not separate.
