It is ageless, timeless and a great investment, so why has one writer and style director chosen never to wear a two-piece – until now?
I had a moment last summer when, for the first time, I actually wanted to try on a suit jacket. I cannot recall a time in my life when I have actively chosen to wear a suit. As in, I woke up and felt inspired to wear one as opposed to having to wear one because I was going to an event that demanded it. And yet there I was, in the brand-spanking-new Balenciaga showroom in Paris, practically throwing myself into one still hot off the catwalk. This particular jacket, cut deliberately narrow through the shoulders and in the body, was curiously appealing. Despite its snug proportions, it didn’t feel tight. It felt, well, really rather good.
