For fall, you need to make sure you have your 3-piece suit and while there are several designers (Dolce & Gabbana, Dunhill, Ralph Lauren Purple Label), our favorite is by Simon Spurr.
Be on the lookout for these four items in suit cloth:
- fabric - stick with wool or kick it up to 100% cashmere
- fineness - it's the "super number" and higher isn't always better; stick with 120 - 150
- strength - this is what tailors call the "guts" and if you bunch it in your fist and it show wrinkling, it's not what you want
- variety - flannel, worsted, tweed, plain weave....stick with worsted
