Kincaid No. 3 Suit Jacket by Sid Mashburn
If you can only have one suit in your closet, this should be it. High-twist is a fine, smooth, year-round wool that travels beautifully... the threads just spring into place, no matter how hard you wear it, which makes this suit a real workhorse with serious range. (We recommend it for everything from weekday meetings to weddings, January to December.) Full canvas construction is like the sine qua non of tailoring, and the No. 3 has a special 3-layer canvas that makes it our most structured tailored make. You can almost feel it start to mold to your body as soon as you slip it on. And we built the Kincaid model with a soft (read: natural) shoulder, a 2-button front, and a shorter, darted body with some tracing to it, for a fit that's slimmish but never skinny. The trousers, too, are designed to complement the jacket, with a trim-but-not-tight leg that looks great with a cuff. While we always go for an American-Italian blend, the cut of the Kincaid leans a bit more sartoria than the rest. But just like all of our tailored clothing, it's designed to take you from Mississippi to Milan — and back again — without looking or feeling out of place.
