A number of factors need to be taken into consideration when taking care of your suit.  The following tips will help to prolong your favourite suit’s life.

  • Cloth choice can be a factor in determining the expected life of a suit. Generally, the heavy the cloth chosen, the stronger the suit will be. However,  with our warm climate we can’t always choose the heaviest of weights. Through the warmer months, light to medium weighted fabrics will be the best choice. Huddersfield Linthwaite super 120s collection is a durable lightweight option.
  • The frequency that you wear your suit is the possibly the biggest factor in determining your suit’s life span. We recommend wearing a suit once or twice a week. If your suit has two trousers then you can wear the suit at least three times a week by rotating the trousers.
  • You suit will not need to be dry cleaned every week, especially your jacket. An occasional press for the jacket, and dry cleaning of the trouser once a month or so is, in most cases, more than adequate. The chemicals used to dry clean disturb the natural fibers in the cloth which in turn reduces the life of the suit.
  • Avoid the wire hanger! Always use a wide coat hanger. This will help to maintain the shape of the suit and avoid nasty stains that many cheaper wire hangers leave on garments.

For all the decisions that need to be made on style, shape, and fashion when tailoring the ultimate bespoke suit, creating the lapel choice on the suit is often one of the the most difficult decisions to make.

Notched or peaked lapel?

  • the notch lapel is the most common lapel. Usually only found on single breasted jackets, this lapel is the most classic of designs and is suited for all occasions. It is also found on sport jackets. The width of the notch is usually from slim to medium.
  • the peaked lapel is one of my favorites, this lapel is commonly found on double breasted jackets and is also very popular on the single breasted jacket. It is the best choice for a formal occasion, such as a wedding, and also a great choice for a dinner suit. The lapel width ranges from medium to wide.

Fortis Green have redefined the luxury men’s dress sock by identifying every aspect of sock design, materials, manufacturing and finishing and then engineering each component to the highest possible standards.

Their strong geometric designs and compelling colour combinations are inspired by 1930’s Art Deco poster art, giving their range both a bold personality.

Fortis Green socks have been engineered to eliminate all the common technical bugbears. Producing dress socks from mercerized cotton has eliminated the possibility of shrinking or pilling. Reinforcement at the heel and toe means less chance of wearing through. Manufactured with a single rib welt, your Fortis Green socks will stay up all day without tight elastication at the calf and our hand-linked toes create a truly seamless feel.

Our Egyptian mercerized cotton has been treated by Swiss textile company HeiQ to create a finished product with a super soft luxury feel on the foot, combined with practical antibacterial properties.

The end result from Fortis Green is the men’s luxury sock defined.

Zink & Sons is proud to stock a selection of Fortis Green socks for our clients.
