A range of materials, cuts and finishes on offer
One of Dubai’s favourite bespoke tailors, Kachins Couture, has launched its autumn-winter collection. Using exquisite designs and fabrics, each item is meticulously hand-crafted.
When choosing your winter suit, pay close attention to the construction and fabric. You should look for a sturdy material that keeps you warm, such as wool or cashmere – this will also maintain the shape and structure of the suit. Wool is versatile, and can be spun loosely or tightly to retain as much heat as necessary, while cashmere is soft and adaptable, with a luxurious feel.
Also try tweed, which is thick, warm, water-resistant and durable. A tweed suit, with its distinctive pattern, is as elegant as it is timeless.
A herringbone suit is much like tweed, with a distinctive, thin zig-zag pattern. Or look to a flannel suit, with its polished, felted appearance and extreme softness, suitable for day-to-day wear. Chequered suits never stray out of fashion, and are another great choice this season.
Think about how you complement the dark hues of your suit, or contrast them with bright and patterned pieces. Knit ties are a great accessory for winter, and generally match all suit silhouettes. Look to florals too – try a floral tie, a simple dark floral button-up or a pocket square.
Kachins Group was founded in 1981, and today has showrooms in Bur Dubai, Dubai Marina, Business Bay, Jumeirah and Downtown, Abu Dhabi.
