Thom Browne already redefined classic suiting with his cropped trousers and shortened jackets. Now the designer is doing it once again, this time becoming the first American designer to offer Cool Wool-certified garments. Crafted from Australian Merino wool, the pieces come in a maximum woolen weight of just 190 g/m² — meaning they’re perfect for the warm summertime months ahead. Said Browne:
Wool has long been an essential element of my collection and this partnership with The Woolmark Company allows me to further explore the possibilities and boundless potential of the fiber. We’re using more wool in our spring collections each year and its natural benefits such as breathability and shape retention mean it is perfect for lightweight suiting. I’m excited about the prospect of these collaborative collections with Woolmark. I was proud to be a judge for The International Woolmark Prize earlier this year and look forward to building on our creative partnership.
