We’ve talked a lot about fabric as being the number one consideration when commissioning warm weather clothing, Equally important is construction. Looser cuts (like open weaves) help airflow, of course, but airflow comes to a screeching halt when it hits most linings.
Except for Bemberg.
Bemberg is a 1930’s man-made fabric that is silky to the touch and is magically made from a derivative of cotton fibres (Japanese Cupro.) That’s important because natural fibres are moisture-wicking, and the silky man-made part of the fabric is anti-static and anti-cling.
Best of both worlds.
Speaking of which, using Bemberg is quarter or half-lined coats and jackets builds structure, anti-static, anti-cling, breathability and airflow into your warm weather suits and sport coats. Best of both worlds.
It’s the difference between wearing Gortex or a rubberized rain-poncho.
Using regular linings for warm weather clothing is like wearing that rain-poncho over your shirts and under your jackets. Makes for a great picture, but isn’t a great look. And that’s from Leviner Wood — the folks who love the individuality of a fancy lining.
Looking hot and bothered? Consider Bemberg for your next custom garment. Just give Leviner Wood a call and let Larry know.
