The Dream Suit from Luigi Bianchi Mantova
6 Reasons to Add A Dream Suit to your Wardrobe
The Dream Suit is one of Luigi Bianchi Mantova’s staple models. The model has a particular fit and construction that makes it one of a kind.
It might sound hyperbolic, but this suit really is a dream, and it has become our most popular suit. We find that it looks good on nearly every body type. If you’re thinking of adding a fresh suit to your wardrobe, here are a few reasons we’d suggest the Dream.
1. Soft Shoulders
The shoulder on the Dream Suit is unconstructed, which allows it to hang naturally rather than being stiff and rigid. This results in a lightweight jacket that looks effortless and contemporary, and it is also more comfortable to wear.
2. Balanced Fit
The jacket has a contemporary fit, which is sleek and trim but not overly fitted. It looks relaxed while still maintaining a crisp silhouette. The armholes aren’t too tight, so it allows for good movement throughout the day. The chest is clean, and it’s not too short or long. The trousers are also the ideal balance between trim and relaxed, with an 18.5cm bottom width to create a straight line down the leg.
3. Easygoing Patch Pockets
Many people overlook the role that pockets play on a suit or sport jacket, but they have a huge effect on the overall look. The Dream Suit often features patch pockets, and we can’t deny that we are suckers for it.
Patch pockets allow a sport jacket to look a little more casual while still being totally appropriate for the office and most events. They don’t add extra bulk, and they have an Italian, easygoing feel to them.
Patch pockets are also functional and durable. We don’t suggest loading them up, but you can throw your phone in there without worrying about the pocket ripping. They’re a must-have for the season.
Fun fact: Patch pockets were actually the first pockets ever added to a men’s blazer!
4. Versatile Styling
You can easily style this suit with a casual flair. Try it with rolled up pants and a crew neck shirt or polo instead of a dress shirt, and it’ll look super sharp.
The Dream Suit also works very well for splitting up. It can be a bit of a taboo to split up the pants and jacket of a suit, but that is usually because the suit in question is too formal, so the pieces look out of place on their own.
The soft construction of the jacket paired with the patch pockets makes it look natural when worn separately. In most cases, you can wear it with other dress pants, chinos, or even jeans. The trousers also fit great on their own, so you can wear them with or without another sport jacket.
This is one of the reasons a Luigi Bianchi Dream Suit is one of our first recommendations for when a guy has a relatively small wardrobe. You can style these pieces so many ways, it lets you get the most out of it.
This also makes it great for travel. If you are away for a few days and don’t want to pack a ton of items, just mix and match a couple Dream Suits and you’ll be good to go.
5. The Quality
Luigi Bianchi wears their fabric producers on their sleeve because they are proud to work with the mills they do. You’ll often find tags indicating fabric made by Reda, Loro Piana, and Barberis, which are all known to be among the best in the world.
As a family-run company, Luigi Bianchi has four generations of expertise in developing world-renowned clothing, blending traditional craftsmanship with contemporary styling. The fabric is laser cut in a state-of-the-art facility in Mantova, Italy, and the items are assembled by hand by artisans with a passion for tailoring that runs deep as the brand’s 100+ year history.
6. The Value
The Dream Suit typically starts around $1300, so when it comes to a suit of this quality, the price really can’t be beat.
