On the topic of dressing right, a lot is said about fit, but not enough about an equally important facet of good style, which is: quality fabric. Seriously. A stellarly-cut suit that looks like it was made from a trash bag just looks like a trash bag. Real talk.
Anyway, because good fabric is so important, CJM is excited that a representative from Scabal, manufacturer of some of the world’s rarest, most luxurious and high-end fabrics, will be in the Christopher James Menswear on March 14-15, to talk about the makings of quality cloth. See our blog post about the Spring 2014 Trunk Show to learn more.
For instance, a good suit is not just a piece of clothing. It is an investment. It can influence how far you get up the corporate ladder, or whether you land that next big deal. So, with any investment, you do your research. You wouldn’t buy a car without inspecting it from hood to trunk, right? It shouldn’t be any different with a suit, and fabric is one detail you don’t overlook (instead of MPGs, you are looking at super 150s. Same concept, really).
Scabal makes the highest quality suiting fabric in the biz, and custom suits that are both breathable and durable. Some of their fabrics are even woven with diamonds. No joke. They call it their “Diamond Chip” cloth because tiny diamond fragments are intricately woven into the cloth, giving it a subtle sheen. It’s pretty amazing. Here’s a sport coat from Scabal’s first-ever “Diamond Chip Jacketing Collection”:
This and more will be at the trunk show, and you’ll be able to ask a Scabal representative everything you ever wanted to know about suiting fabric. Of course, the best part is that you can have a suit made from a Scabal fabric of your choice. So, don’t miss it.
The 2014 Spring Trunk Show will be held March 14-15, 2014 at Christopher James Menswear in Fort Wayne, Ind. Light food and drink will be provided. See you there!
