The fourth installment of Mission Impossible, as well as being the best action movie since–well, ever– features what we predict to be the single coolest suit of the year. It’s the iconic blue suit that Ethan Hunt dons as he chases his target through an epic sandstorm in Dubai, that has sparked our collective menswear-obsessed imagination.
The fabric you see here is a blue birdseye. Birdseye is a pattern woven from two colors. From afar, the fabric appears solid, but close inspection reveals small dots in the lighter shade, known as “eyes.” The eyes are what gives the Ghost Protocol suit its signature sheen.
To help you achieve this look, we’ve selected two beautiful birdseye fabrics from our collection. The first is a 120’s wool & mohair blend in a denim blue. It has just the right sheen to mimic Ethan Hunt’s signature swagger.
The second is a higher quality cloth from our Loro Piana Tasmanian Collection. It’s 100% Super 150’s Wool, incredibly soft, and features a slightly larger “eye”. This is a truly premium selection that Mr. Cruise himself would be happy to wear.
