Crafted from luxurious 100% super 110’s wool sharkskin cloth from the Italian mill Filarte, the Pimlico is available as a Modern-Fit three piece mixer to ensure the perfect fit. The sumptuous cloth has been cleverly woven to add depth of colour to this vibrant, navy design.

Team your favourite suit with a matching or contrasting waistcoat for the ultimate tailored look. One golden rule to remember, never fasten the bottom button of your waistcoat and make sure your shirt isn’t peeping out!

 


5. CARING FOR YOUR SUIT

"TREAT YOUR PAUL COSTELLOE SUIT WITH LOVE AND RESPECT AND IT WILL SERVE YOU WELL" Paul Costelloe, 2017.

An additional pair of trousers will extend the lifespan of your suit as will allowing the fabric fibres to breathe by rotating your favourite Paul Costelloe suits.

Avoid dry-cleaning your suit unless necessary and invest in a high quality clothes brush to remove small marks and help retain the fabrics fresh finish.

Keep your suit on a wide hanger to maintain the shoulder and chest shape and avoid overloading the pockets to prevent losing your suits fine shape.

 

6. LAYERS, LAYERS, LAYERS

Don’t be afraid to combine your knitwear with your suit for a contemporary look this season, but for those who take their style a little more traditional, team your chino’s, cotton shirt, fine merino knitwear and your standalone jacket for paired back style.

 

7. THE LEATHER BELT

They do more than simply hold your trousers in place.

The belt should be used to make a style statement to tie your outfit together, add a personal touch to your formal ensemble and to create a clear divide between your upper and lower half.

Of course, only a leather belt will suffice.

 

8. IT’S IN THE DETAIL

Your look is not complete unless the details are fine tuned. Team your outfit with a statement stock for formal finesse and a flash of colour.
