It takes a day like today to stoke the memory that we live in a pretty wet country. Although favourable weather of late, with the odd heatwave, we are right back to reality with the heavy rains of today. With that being said, Roseberry Tailoring would like to introduce The Bespoke Raincoat and our Rain Repellent Suits.
Luxury cloth mill Loro Piana, have developed a new range of cloth. Storm System® is the registered Loro Piana mark indicating natural fabrics that have been made totally waterproof and wind resistant by combining natural fibres with the most advanced technology in a perfect synthesis of style and function. Storm System® consists of a double barrier: the water-repellent Rain System®, and the exclusive hydrophilic membrane that is resistant to water, windproof and allows the skin to breathe.
Rain System® treatment ensures that drops of water slide on the surface of the fabric, enhancing its impermeability and protecting it against dust, dirt and liquid stains. The thin and extremely light micromolecular and microporous absorbent membrane is applied to the back of the fabric. Exploiting the principle of osmosis, the aqueous vapour produced by perspiration wicked outwards while humidity in the surrounding environment is prevented from entering: this guarantees absolute transpirability and provides optimal wind protection.
Storm System® provides the wearer with clothing that is warm but light, versatile and comfortable, and suitable for confronting the most different climates with style and grace: windcheaters, casual jackets and overcoats designed to be worn in the city, during leisure moments, and when travelling,and made using the noblest fibres that have been made waterproof and wind resistant without losing any of their distinctive softness, in a perfect combination of select quality and practicality.
Often under-rated in terms of style, the humble raincoat can be a magnificent all-year round addition to your wardrobe. Especially using the Loro Piana Rain System®. Given that even in our summertime we often need a lightweight option to either carry around, or throw on when the temperature cools, this makes Loro Piana the natural choice for such a garment. And when it comes to style, well that’s where Roseberry Tailoring can help. With our expert help and advice, you can create your own raincoat exactly the way you want it, whether lined or unlined and in a choice of colours unavailable elsewhere, you can be sure you’ll have something to wear all year around and with multiple different outfits.
Rain Repellent Suits:
This is really exciting news. Given the frequency in my own experience where we tend to encounter all four seasons in one day here, I’m a huge fan of the rain repellent suit range from Loro Piana’s Rain System®. Watching the droplets roll off the material and onto the ground gives me an enormous sense of victory over our weather. In the past, I’ve been an overcoat wearing, brolly carrying stalwart of George St in our capital city, often overheating with our temperature not quite requiring a heavy coat, but our downpour ensuring I can’t be out of the office without it.
Rain System® provides a confidence that you can pop out for lunch. walk between meetings or head out to the waiting transport without fear or ruining your beautiful bespoke suits in the rain.
