Located in the midst of the tactile heaven that is a Brunello Cucinelli store, a modern miracle awaits; the top selling menswear travel suit. Innocently surrounded by the coordinating fall/winter collection, the travel suit appears to be as handsome as all the other available clothing options, but therein lies the garment’s special secret. “You can fold it into a small compartment, shake it off and hang it, and it will return to its original wrinkle-free look’ says designer Brunello Cucinelli.
“Even before we started to incorporate a travel jacket into our collections, I always wore an ultralight wool jacket that stayed practically intact no matter how much I wore it and moved” adds Mr. Cucinelli. Made out of a lightweight wool and silk blend fabric, the suit comes in a variety of styles: single breasted, 1.5 breasted, peaked lapel, even as a separate sport coat. The season-free suit comes in both navy and grey and is available year round, which is great news for the well dressed traveler who likes to stick with a good thing once they find it.
Gone are the days of packing for a business trip and arriving like a wrinkled mess. Simply by removing this one simple obstacle, the Brunello Cucinelli travel suit not only subverts this vexing headache, it provides today's frequent flier with an immediate style upgrade.
