Burberry has unveiled a new menswear offer — suits designed for men who travel. Burberry describes it as “a new type of tailoring,” with a focus on the travel consumer who wants to look sharp on the go.
The new suits feature “innovative lightweight construction” (the front panels of the suit), “lightweight shoulder construction,” and “naturally flexible fabrics.”
In reality the suit jacket has been designed to sit like a normal blazer, but with more modern canvassing, lending extra flexibility and rotation in the shoulder. The suits also feature a new Italian ‘memory fabric’, a 100% merino wool specially woven to resist creases and crumples.
Prices for the line start at $1,995 for the two-piece suits, with blazers available from $1,295.
Burberry is launching Travel Tailoring with a global digital campaign, shot in London. The brand has released a video which shows off some of the more innovative aspects, as well as an interactive online experience which allows you to explore the suits in more detail.
