Sizzle at events this summer with cool suit cuts from Canali

Suits and tuxedos are timeless classics, ensuring the sartorial male always looks his sharpest, whatever the weather. But even so, dressing your best can get a little hot under the collar during summertime – so how do you stand by your statement without having to peel off the layers?

At this time of year, fashion disasters are aplenty, with the rising temperatures seeing many throw caution to the wind in favour of comfortable attire that often doesn’t cut it at formal lunches, weddings and the like. But thankfully, there are some great summer-friendly suits out there that will see you through any occasion – meaning you never have to compromise on style.

The experts at Canali have shared their four top-selling summer suits with us for 2018, which promise to keep you looking your sharpest at all times.

Light Gray Capri Check Suit

To neutralise the smoldering summer temperatures, opt for a cool colour palette of light greys. Take, for example, the thoroughly modern light grey Capri suit from Canali, which boasts a slim silhouette and is perfect for any summer occasion.

As well as coming in an utterly on-trend shade, it’s stitched from 100% wool, known as impeccable 2.0. Wool doesn’t hold wrinkles like linen and cotton, and quickly evaporates any sweat, making it the perfect fabric for summer attire. Meanwhile, the single button and single-breasted front impart a minimalistic look, while a half-moon breast pocket allows for the addition of an extra statement maker in the form of the humble pocket square. With a slim-fit pant that exudes contemporary chic, this suit isn’t just sharp, but savvy, too, and is guaranteed to impress wherever you go.


Add a maroon, dark blue or black pocket square or tie to pull the whole look together, and you’ve got a smart and sophisticated look that can be worn again and again. Just change up the accessories each time, and no one will suspect a thing.

Black or dark brown shoes are a perfect match for formal gatherings, while white trainers or loafers will dress down the look for more casual events.

Steel Blue Capri Check Suit

Grey not your colour? Canali offers the same Capri fit in a suave steel blue shade, too. Oozing summer sophistication, it again comes in breathable impeccable 2.0 wool – and provides more ease of movement with its lateral vents and 2-button fastening.


Owing to its dark shade, the Steel Blue Capri Check Suit looks great with a variety of lighter coloured pocket squares, shirts and ties – so why not inject a bit of personality by choosing your favourite? Light blues, pale greys and pinks will all work well – or opt for a similarly dark and moody shade to maintain a more absorbing look.

Sapphire Blue Capri Check Suit

If you’re less about subtle shades and more about statement colour, Canali’s sapphire blue Capri check suit offers the perfect balance between statement and suave. Its contagious cool blue vibe makes it a great choice for daytime events, where you can show it off to its best advantage – so why not wear it to a brunch, lunch meeting or summer fete?

Like the steel blue version, this one also boasts an elegant 2 buttons fastening. Comfortable, stylish and commanding all in one.


Let the suit do the talking and opt for muted or a neutral-toned pocket square or tie. For footwear, try a pair of stylish brown brogues. Just add impeccably styled hair, and you’re good to go.

Black Pure Wool Tuxedo

You can rarely go wrong with black, and if you need the proof then look no further Canali’s stunning black pure wool tuxedo – the epitome of dapper and all-round class.

Although black may not be the first colour that springs to mind when you think of summer, if you’re only planning on investing in one great suit, then this one is a pretty safe bet. Not only is it a shade that will see you through all kinds of occasion, but it’s also 100% wool, crease-free and stain-free. What more could you ask for from a suit?

And don’t worry – you can still make a statement thanks to its unique silk shawl collar, which promises to take you from day to night with all the flamboyancy you’d expect from a quality piece of party attire.


Evening loafers, bow ties, and silk cumberbunds are the classic accessories for a black tuxedo – and they still look as good as they ever did. Opt for tradition on this one for an all-round classy look.
