NATURAL SILHOUETTE (OR SOFT SILHOUETTE)
Made with softer canvas (the stuff between your jacket's fabric and lining) and less padding. Considered the American style.
Made with stiffer canvas and usually has a padded shoulder. The British or European model.
A wide, open grid design formed by thin lines.
A two-tone pattern made up of broken checks.
A distinctive V-shaped design composed of two colors.
Very thin vertical stripes that, upon close inspection, actually look like a series of pin dots.
Vertical stripes that are in the same color family as the suit background—hence, they look like shadows.
White vertical stripes that are wider than pinstripes—the idea is that they look like they're drawn with tailor's chalk.
A distinct plaid design made up of overlapping patterns of large and small checks. Sometimes called the Prince of Wales check.
Technically a fabric, not a pattern, tweed has a rough, unfinished texture and is woven with multicolored yarns for a flecked appearance.
Ideal for warm weather; typically unstructured, with a crisp look.
The perfect fabric for hot weather; extremely breathable with a cool, intentionally rumpled look.
The most common—with many variations. Worsted wool is made from tightly twisted yarn that produces a smoother finish. Super 100s and 120s wool refers to the fineness of the yarn, which results in a softer, silkier product. Tropical-weight wool is lightweight and—you guessed it—ideal for warmer weather.
