If you can only have one suit in your closet, this should be it. High-twist is a fine, smooth, year-round wool that travels beautifully... the threads just spring into place, no matter how hard you wear it, which makes this suit a real workhorse with serious range. (We recommend it for everything from weekday meetings to weddings, January to December.) Full canvas construction is like the sine qua non of tailoring, and the No. 3 has a special 3-layer canvas that makes it our most structured tailored make. You can almost feel it start to mold to your body as soon as you slip it on. And our Kincaid model has a natural shoulder, a 2-button front, and a shorter, darted body with a little tracing for a fit that's slimmish but never skinny. Style-wise, it leans a little more Italian than the Virgil or the Landry. The trousers are cut in our original plain-front shape to complement the jacket, with a trim-but-not-tight leg that looks great with a cuff. And just like all of our tailored clothing, it's designed to take you from Mississippi to Manhattan to Milan without looking or feeling out of place.

We organize our tailored clothing into different levels of makes, similar to the way some German automakers have different series of cars.
Our sportiest, most casual make — unconstructed, with no canvas at all. The knockaround.
Our “easy” make, refined yet relaxed, with a lightweight, single-layer canvas. The basic.
Our “house” make and the one that started it all, with a structured, 3-layer canvas. The workhorse.
Our sarto make, with more handwork and a more natural, lightweight-yet-dense 2-layer canvas. The upgrade.
True sarto, with the same canvas as the No. 4, but completely handmade. The top of the line.
We used this English high-twist wool for the very first suit we ever made. It’s fine and smooth and a little bit crunchy, with a slightly open (read: breathable) weave because the yarns are twisted more tightly than in a typical worsted. That also gives it excellent bounce-back. You have to work pretty hard to wrinkle it — and even when you do, a quick overnight hang will usually have it looking fresh again — so it’s especially good for travel. Between the resilience and the breathability, it’s a true 365-days-a-year fabric.
