Solaro SoRaro reflects heat - Truth or Fiction?

Summer has finally arrived in Sydney, Australia & what better way to start than wearing a cotton “Solaro” suit.

It has been said that the weave was developed in such a way to reflect the suns bight - so far I have to agree.

Solaro cloth is recognisable by the fine herringbone weave, usually 2 colours (in this case khaki & plum). Solaro can be of cotton or wool. The wool variety is almost like gaberdine.

The hand (or feel) is quite special in that there is a certain heft yet soft to skin. The creases tend to also be soft not fine like normal cotton.

I’m looking forward to more cotton Solaro - maybe even a DB..

* note the shadows as the clouds move & then note that the tone of the suit changes ever so slightly, so hard to capture this..
