The Texas temperatures are already hovering around triple digits, and that can only mean one thing for men: uncomfortably warm work attire. But don’t sweat it. Thanks to the careful and considerate designs of Q Custom Clothier, the Lean & Light collection is made specifically for the extreme summer heat. I spoke with Q’s founder and president, Raja Ratan, to get the scoop on this lightweight design.
“We have some really summer oriented silk, linen, and wool blends that are more conducive for summer,” Raja says. “They’re lighter weight, breathe better, and have a softer construction with almost no shoulder padding and half the lining.”
Even though the construction might seem a little more casual than a classically constructed sport coat, Raja insists they’re still appropriate for the office with a pair of trousers. Pair the Lean & Light sport coats with jeans for a weekend stroll or khakis for a casual summer wedding to get the most out of the versatile collection. With several hundred fabric choices, there are no limitations to the color or print of the coat. Q Custom Clothier caters to its customers by scheduling appointments as well as welcoming walk-ins to create bespoke designs that are perfect for any Dallas man.
