A Suit to Travel in

The Paul Smith brand (and person) has become synonymous with classic British tailoring and style. Renowned for well-made, good quality, simple cut clothing. Paul Smith designs are renowned for a splash of vibrant colour, a floral print or the signature multi-coloured stripes but they are equally known for the fabric. A suit to travel in is 100% wool and has stretch and crease-recovery properties that mean the suit will always look good, whatever the journey.

The finished size is A5 (210x148mm) portrait and it is a 6pp gatefold folding out to a finished size of 210x441mm

The material chosen is our Omnia 320gsm which gives it that dead matt, tactile feel but with great reproduction, especially with the mono images and cool flat grey

You can see in the image below, how the Omnia has retained all the detail in the dark areas in the jacket...
Creative direction and design is by the in-house design team at Paul Smith. Printing is by Leicester based Greenshires with Richard Dalby handling the project. Beautifully printed and finished - a really well produced piece.
