A basic navy blue suit is a must-have in many people's wardrobe, and this navy gabardine is the perfect color and weight for any occasion! Gabardine is a durable fabric that features a subtle diagonal weave in its pattern. It is soft to the touch, making it a comfortable choice for clothing items for men and women. This would include trousers and slacks, jackets, coats, and skirts. Navy is a versatile color that can be paired with many other colors including red, white, yellow, pink, green, and lighter shades of blue, so very little fashion sense is required when pairing it up at 5am for that early morning meeting!
