Savile Row and Cool Wool
SIMON CROMPTON
Tuesday 3rd of July 2012
2   Comments



To celebrate London Collections: Men, Savile Row recently had an afternoon of open doors, fast cars (courtesy of Maserati) and old-fashioned promotion of an old fashioned substance - wool. When the weather gets hot, wool is not, went the refrain. And we heartily support such snubbing of synthetics. 

Celebrities, fans of tailoring and lots of invitees turned out to visit the tailors and have a drink in the Burlington Arcade that evening.

Couldn't agree more (of course it does depend on the weight). Furthermore, wool in summertime is superior in many regards because it is antibacterial, meaning  that in addition to breathing and wicking away moisture to cool the body, it also repels odor. Most people don't realize the last bit, which is hugely important. I'm glad to see this campaign taking place and people like you publicizing it.
