What, you may be wondering, is the Meriwether? Could it be a breath of subtropical warmth on a veranda in south Georgia? An epic transcontinental road trip with your good buddy Clark? An exquisite new cotton suit from an ape-inspired purveyor of stylish men’s clothing? The answer is yes, yes, and an unequivocal YES. Perfect for summer weddings, ideal for Jazz Week in New Orleans, practically designed for rooftop parties and spring voyages to warmer climes, Bonobos is pleased to present the latest addition to its famous cotton suiting line: The Meriwether.
The Meriwether’s lightweight cotton twill fabric is crisp in appearance and soft to the touch; it has a double vent half-lined jacket, with contrast gingham pipe trim for a playful hint of style and color. The Meriwether features real horn jacket buttons and hand-worked pick stitching, and it pairs wonderfully with Bonobos button-downs and/or a bold sense of uninhibited adventure.
Bonobos has toiled long and hard to make the fit of our suits this year even better We made the fit across the chest snug but not constraining for a trim look that's also comfortable. We made tailoring it to perfection even easier by making the button cuffs non-functioning. We boosted the heft of the pockets and interlining for added durability, and narrowed the lapels for a more modern look. We kept the same great attention to detail and appreciation of fine fabrics and world-class craftsmanship. If you've tried one of our wonderful suits before, you'll be amazed at how far we've come. If you haven't tried one before, now's the time to jump in the boat.
