The Iconic Mohair Suit

A three piece, single buttoned statement! Duchamp fittingly named this their Iconic Mohair Suit. According to the Oxford dictionary iconic is anything relating to or of the nature of an icon (person worthy of respect).

Any well-fitting three-piece suit commands attention. This particular number has a double breasted waistcoat with a shawl collar. This completely contrasts the wide, peak lapel jacket. These fine details separate this suit from the flock.

In some of the shots you will notice a slight sheen or luster in the fabric. This comes from its mohair consistency; the suit is 73% wool and 27% mohair. Mohair was originally produced by the Angora goat of Turkey and often blended with wool.

Given this suit’s unique color and flare I wear this three ways:

  • Business Formal – Paired with a solid button down shirt and a solid straight tie
  • Black Tie – Dressed up with a black or navy bowtie and patent leather shoes
  • Cocktail – Bright white button down shirt and no tie…done
