Messori BESPOKE #15 | Cut to Fit You: the pinstriped pattern
In this new video, Gianmarco Messori describes the pinstriped pattern: he talks about the types of this fabric and explains how to wear it.
Below you can read the speech of the video:
Today I'll deal with another must-have day suit: pinstriped pattern
Ready, action, go!
Pinstriped pattern is a traditional fabric named after the thin vertical stripes that runs on its surface and seem to have been traced using a chalk
At a regular distance and usually bright on a dark backdrop - but a dark on bright version also exists
The stripes can be of three types
The traditional pinstripe pattern in which the stripe is made up of a succession of small dots or pins
The chalk stripe has continuous and thicker stripes at a greater distance
And then the cable stripe, in which diagonal traits recalling a cable create the stripes
Its natural habitat?
It is the business suit par excellence
Both in single or double breast version
Combined with a white shirt, double cuffs and pons...
And black shoes: Oxford or Derby models
Sorry… I have a gala dinner tonight, I must go and get dressed...
After 6 p.m. pinstriped suits are not allowed, see you in two weeks!
