3. Washed Cotton Suit


“A lighweight cotton suit is essential if you plan on wearing suits all year round like I do. We did it completely unlined without any padding in the shoulder so that it’s light and comfortable. Since it’s done in a washed cotton, it’s very easy to break up and wear separately as a sport coat.

The trousers of the suit are really great–we went with side tabs and frog-mouth pockets to help differentiate them from the rest of the cotton suits you see everyone else on the street wearing.”




“With a more casual cotton suit like this one, I like wearing a western denim shirt.

It’s about giving a suit a young and modern look–not just something you remember because your dad wore one to work every day when you were younger.”


“The leather tassel loafers really top this one off. They’re casual, but very sharp, which is what this look is all about.

This is how you want to be wearing a suit on those blistering hot summer days.”

  • Mark

    Will the parka from look no. 1 be available in the web store anytime soon? Looks dope!

  • Daniel

  • Miguel

    That number three look is just fantastic, I must have the suit and the shoes.

  • El Zilcho

    What’s up with cargo pants? Does anyone actually use the cargo pockets? They’re so ugly. I don’t even need that many pockets on my shorts/pants when I’m out fishing.

  • Rich

    Amazing as always boys, those tassel loafers in look #3 look great.

  • Shawn

    Awesome post! I was kinda eyeing the loafers in look no. 3 and now I have one more reason to want them badly!

    Love his denim shirts!

  • J Saltzman

    I. Must. Have. the boots from looks 2. Those look great!

  • TO

    Perfect! What a well done feature. I definitely have more reason to further investigate Suit Supply thanks to Mr. De Gruiter.

    The kilties are dope, as are all the shoes in this post. Love the detailing on the cotton suit.

    The hood looks removable to be worn as a regular ‘mac’ raincoat? Really really cool stuff if so.

  • M.

    I can only hope to one day be as stylish as this man.
    Great job, really.

  • Dave

    What’s up with the unbuttoned sleeves on his jacket in the 3rd picture. I hope this isn’t a new trend. It looks rather vulgar.

  • Dacian

    Maybe it’s just me or what I am used to see in a more italian look, but the looks seem sloppy to me.

    • Jerk

      Ya, some of the looks seemed borderline slop. Didn’t bug me too much tho.

  • Misha

    I have a feeling my Dutch pride is coming up. Great post! Keep em coming!

    The washed cotton suit with side tabs is one of my favorite pieces ever featured on the site. I love the choice to pair it with a denim shirt as well. Anybody know some good brands that are reasonably inexpensive and make slim cut pants with side tabs?

    Love that 3rd look, casual and sharp

  • John

    The slim cargos are awesome! I wish I had visited Suitsupply last time I was in London.

    I like the fact he’s dressing up denim shirts here!

  • Jerk

    The kiltie loafers are dope son!
