2018 taught us a lot about men's suits. They really came into their own and styling them was more fun than ever, creating endless looks that you can't go wrong with. Since the tailoring world really got everyone's attention last year, 2019 is hot on it and there's about to be an influx in men's suits across the country...
Here at House of Cavani, we live for printed suits, especially check and tweed as you know, but we also love pinstripe, and we think every man should own a pinstripe power suit in his wardrobe! We all know the 4 classic suit colours that every man needs as we wrote about that recently, and these are black, navy, dark grey, and a lighter shade of grey or taupe for summer, however...
Tweed is a fabric that we all know about, we all see it everywhere, and we all just take it for granted, but where did it come from? There’s numerous articles online about the history of tweed itself as a fabric, but not about the history of the tweed suit, so here at House of Cavani, we wanted to take you on a historical journey through the ages of the tweed suit, which coincidently is one of our best sellers. In order to do this though, we first need to look at where tweed itself came from.

Cavani Draco Navy 3 Piece Suit Review
Now our blog is up and running, we will be running regular articles in which we review one of our products. We will take an in depth look into one of our many available products, discussing the fit, comfortability, colour and design. Focusing on these key factors will help us provide an all round view and summary of each piece. First up is the Cavani Draco Navy Three Piece Suit which has the honour of opening our blog reviews!
With fashion, first impressions are everything, fortunately this suit instantly demanded my attention with its rather unique visual design. The typical navy suit has been snatched from everyday normality and given a glamorous boost! Just by adding a subtle check print across the whole length of the material has given an otherwise unassuming three piece suit a touch of magic! This model is just as suited (pun intended!) for an upcoming wedding, an evening at your favourite restaurant or even to liven up your drab office attire.
The texture of the suit is comprised of a nice soft texture, no worries that it will cause any inconvenient itching when worn. It is constructed from a heavier material compared to similar pieces, but this just adds to the feeling of quality. The suit is comprised of 2 buttons on the front, left and right pockets and of course a chest pocket (if you wish to add one of our colour squares). Internally there are 2 pockets to provide you with locations to store your requisite items. Special mention must go to the jacket lining which features a colourful selection of worldwide stamps as well as a larger section displaying a beautiful sea view. The buttons have an almost ombré effect blending blue and black together, each proudly displaying the Cavani name which is stamped onto the front. In addition there is an attached pin bearing the Cavani logo situated on the right lapel.
Finally we come down to fit. This can make or break any clothing item, but a suit can be one of the most critical to get absolutely correct. Even just a fraction out can mean the difference between a perfect made to measure fit or a sloppy sack you just threw on! Fortunately, the Cavani Draco Suit doesn't let us down in this department thanks to its slim fitted design. The waistcoat was snug without constricting with the option to pull it tighter from the back if necessary. The jacket slipped on without a hitch, sitting in perfect alignment with the shoulders and felt instantly comfortable. Sleeve length on jackets can be the final deciding factor (on many occasions I have reluctantly returned outerwear pieces from all sorts of different brands, usually because of over long sleeves). Once again, Cavani pulls through and provides a winning formula, the tip of the sleeve sits optimally at the start of my wrist. For the trousers, they are a standard style with an ideal fit around the seat area. When it comes to leg length, the Draco model comes in a standard size of a 32 inch inseam, but these can easily be hemmed to make them longer (additionally, there is extra material hidden inside to allow them to be increased if necessary).
In summary, I am very impressed with the Cavani Draco Navy Three Piece Suit which took inspiration from many Italian styled suits. Suitable for many occasions and events, very comfortable and made of an incredibly high standard! Please let me know what you think in the comments below. Stay tuned for future reviews and features on the Cavani blog.
