Unlined and completely unconstructed, Suitsupply has unveiled its new “World’s Lightest Suit” as its standout pieces for the menswear brand’s spring/summer 2019 collection.
A reimagination on the brand’s best-selling Havana fit, the World’s Lightest Suit (or WLS for short), is 50 percent lighter than a traditional suit. Cut from luxe silk and ultra-fine S150’s wool by the acclaimed E. Thomas mill in Italy, the WLS comes in at a feathery 1.15 lbs. (525g)—compared to the average 2.27 lbs. (1030g) for traditional suits.
Not compromising on style, this suit features flap pockets, notched lapels, and a pleated shoulder. The WLS is elevated with refined accents like full AMF stitching and genuine horn buttons on the jacket, while the accompanying flat-front trousers feature side adjusters and a straight leg. The result is a breathable and lightweight wear that doesn’t skimp on the classic suiting touches.
Suitsupply’s World’s Lightest Suit, which retails for $999, is now available.
