Power Pieces: Paul Smith Travel Suit

Unveiled in a gallery at Hauser and Wirth on Savile Row during London Collections: Men SS15, Sir Paul Smith’s tailoring innovation – A Suit To Travel In – didn’t just walk down a catwalk. Oh no, in true Sir Paul style, the travel suit was worn by Olympic medal-winning gymnast, Max Whitlock, and a troop from the National Centre of Circus Arts, who carried out handstands, backflips and more to demonstrate the suit’s extraordinary ease of wear.

A must-have for the modern man, the suit is constructed in Italy using a high-twist, pure wool yarn to create a quick recover, crease-resistant cloth; the result of which is a versatile and super-practical piece of tailoring.

“The definition of great design is that it should deliver a perfect combination of form and function,” explains a Paul Smith representative. “At Paul Smith we design beautiful things to be worn and enjoyed. We believe that clothes should not only look good, but should also be fit for purpose. That is why we have created a new suit, tailored to travel in – soft and versatile, it is characterised by a contemporary, neat fit. Harnessing the natural qualities of 100% wool, the new Paul Smith travel suit is designed to move with you. The cloth’s stretch and crease-recovery properties mean that whatever your journey, you’ll always look well turned out.”
