Espresso in the Afternoon - Tropical Suiting is a first-rate wool-blend suiting, woven from the finest quality yarns, with a touch of silk. This stylish fabric boasts a stable handle and a lightly textured (thanks to the weave) soft linen-like feel. A lightweight and breathable suiting fabric that is similar to a tropical suit weight, which has an amazingly soft drape quality and barely creases! Perfect for warmer climates where you still need that smart style.
A versatile palette of navy blue and rich espresso brown is accentuated by the overcheck that features the silky lustrous espresso yarns, that catch the light adding stylish detail and point of interest. The combination of subtle colour and weave detail makes for a molto bello style, perfect for wearing whilst having your espresso in the afternoon.
Espresso in the Afternoon is perfect for fashioning smart jackets and waistcoats that will look great teamed with classic white shirts, tan brogues and jeans. This clever suiting will of course make the finest suits for stylish gents and ladies. Equally serviceable for shirt-style dresses and shirt-waister styles with a vintage vibe.
If suit making isn't your forte, fear not! Put this superb fabric to use for less formal, but equally smart outfits, such as shirts, tunics, pinafore dresses and skirts too. The Merchant & Mills 'Shirt Dress' and 'Trapeze Dress' will look stunning in this fabric. There's also a simple drawstring-waist trouser pattern too: The 101 Trouser which will work perfectly with Espresso in the Afternoon.
