For years, when it’s come to the “first suit” question, we’ve been steadfast proponents of two things. One, that your first suit should be a navy suit. And two, that it should be in a hopsack weave fabric. Why? One word: versatility. You can wear it pretty much anywhere. It’s easy to dress up or dress down. There are tons of shirt and tie combinations that will match perfectly. And, because of the fabric’s texture, you are armed with a really strong separates game.
Hopsack is not really a type of fabric, but a type of weave. It is a basket-like pattern with subtle variations of colors between the threads. Since it has an “open weave”, hopsack is light and breathable, so it is often considered great for spring and summer, although not restricted to these seasons. Hopsack is ideal for traveling as it is easy to fold and it won’t wrinkle much.
