White Linen Blend Double-Breasted Suit

shipping calculated at checkout.

Boasting a beautiful drape and all the character of linen without being too creasy, we loved this cloth so much we have used it to created two suits, in two styles.

The White summer suit is synonymous with Sexton. Super chic and incredibly easy to style as either separates or as a full suit, the white suit is a guaranteed head-turner. With connotations of both rock n roll extravagance and classic sartorial menswear, this suit is the king of versatility.

Wear the full suit with either our new Oxford bag trousers, or our classic Heritage trousers. Pair with a pale blue shirt and silk reppe stripe tie for classy summer suiting incarnate.

Wear the jacket with our Navy linen trousers and a bengal stripe shirt for classic summer look. Swap the navy linen for our Black parallels and terracotta silk shirt to ooze rock n roll. The possibilities are endless.

Jacket Description

Our classic double-breasted jacket, cut from a beautifully textured white linen and wool blend cloth.

When the weather is bright and the climate is warm, keeping cool and dressing for the season is a must. White is a perfect option that opens up huge style options in your wardrobe, matching every colour and every shade - all the while keeping you cool.

Pair the jacket with either our new and matching Oxford bags or heritage trousers for the full white suit effect, or dress down with our navy linen trousers and a bengal stripe shirt for a chic and effortless summer casual look.

Jacket Block

This shapely approach to tailoring also filters through to our double-breasted models, which come in two complementary styles. Perhaps our best-known cut is the timeless Signature Double-Breasted jacket, which has four buttons to fasten and two ‘show buttons’ on the chest. A personal favourite of Edward’s, double-breasted jackets like this lend stature and a touch of authority to the wearer, but can nonetheless still create a playful impression in bold colours, soft textures.

Trouser Description

New to our collection, we're unveiling our take on the iconic Oxford bag trouser. And what better cloth for the debut of this classic menswear piece, than this textured white linen wool.

Based on patterns used by Edward and Tommy Nutter the 70's, the generous preportions of the leg allows for a full flowing drape, which is bennefitted further by this charcter rich linen blend fabric.

Pair with our matching white jacket in either our Double-Breasted or Heritage style for the full white summer suit, or wear with a contrasting navy jacket and open collar shirt for timeless smart summer attire.

Trouser Details

• Two forward pleats
• Jetted slant side pockets
• Double jet hip pocket on the right with hole and button
• 1.5” waistband
• Sexton pistol-shaped side adjusters
• 2” turn-up
• Inlay to let out the waist up to 2"
Inlay to let out the fork 1”
• 2" of inlay in the hem to lengthen the trousers.

Trouser Block

With roots dating back to the 1920's these trousers began life as a comfortable garment for students of Oxford university, before finding their place as a staple in 40's swing dance halls, and again in 1970's soul movements. With heritage running through from old school university wealth to dance and music, these trousers are truly a little piece of history.
