If you didn’t know, Joseph Wendt Custom Clothiers has two locations. One in Long Island, NY, and one more recent location in Naples, FL. Thanks to our great relationships with manufacturers, each store has access to the same vast variety of cloth and pattern choices. Our clients live all over the country, and in all different climates, so we want to keep each one up-to-date with their own personal comfort and fashion. But how do we dress our Florida clients in the latest fall and winter trends, which consist of long wool jackets, cashmere sweaters, and other more “cold weather” outfits? At Joseph’s, we are able to match a client’s need no matter the weather!
It’s all about the fabric! We have some lovely wool blends that are as light and breathable as can be. We also carry light and remarkably soft 100% cashmere, and cashmere/silk blend sweaters in a variety of colors; all perfect for a Floridian fall or winter day, when the temperature dips at sunset. We carry 150s, which are lightweight without taking away from the soft and cozy feel of how a sweater should be. You don’t have to miss out on any fashion trends no matter where you live when you buy from Joey!
When fabric, such as wool, is of high quality, it shouldn’t be uncomfortable. Comfort can be ensured by blending wool with other quality fabrics, such as silk. Wool can also be spun into finer thread, which takes away the coarse feeling often associated with wools. Colors also play a huge part in a fashionable but season-appropriate look. Our gigantic selection of fabrics lets us use fall foliage colors such as browns, rust, and the entire orange and red spectrum, without sacrificing fabric quality. We also like to compliment blues and grays with brown for a distinctly fall feel during this time of year. And, of course, blues, grays and blacks are a standard go-to for winter colors, regardless of where you’re wearing the outfit.
All of our fabrics are of the highest quality, direct from Italy. We have a plethora of swatch books at our two stores for you to come see, and feel, the quality of the fabrics. That way, it’s easy for you to picture them coming together in a custom suit made just for you! Don’t let the weather deter your look! Look good and feel good now with a trip to one of Joseph’s two showrooms!
