A Double-Breasted Jacket in a Prince of Wales Check Fresco

Those men who know their onions know that a fresco style cloth is the only tailoring cloth to wear in the summer. Fresco’s exaggeratedly open weave makes it both lightweight and exceptionally breathable allowing the summer breeze to blow right through.

This particularly striking fresco is woven in a wool/silk yarn, in a glenurquhart type pattern of navy, pale blue and white. The Tautz summer double-breasted jacket is made without all of the usual structural interlinings ensuring that the properties of the fabric are put to best use.
