Rohan Envoy Suit

A travel suit designed for the traveller. Lightweight and fast drying the Rohan Envoy is crease, stain and odour resistant and easy to wash. With zipped security pockets and twin back vents the Rohan Envoy ticks all the boxes for the traveller needing an occasional professional look.

What the manufacturers say:

Looking smart when you check in is easy. Looking professional when you arrive, though, is what really counts.

If you’re travelling in an ordinary suit, it’s almost impossible.

Our Envoy Jacket, by contrast, is made from a crease-resistant blend of natural wool and technical performance fibres which have been treated with a stain-repellent Advanced Teflon™ finish. The light, comfortable, highly breathable lining incorporates sophisticated Polygiene® silver anti-bacterial technology.

Which means you can forget about deal-breaking sweaty backs, unpleasant odours or unfortunate stains and concentrate on one thing: working – smarter.

The fit has been comprehensively re-engineered for 2013. We’ve been working hand-in-hand with our highly-skilled pattern cutter in Portugal to produce a contemporary but still very classic fit that’s right up to date now – but will still look great in five years’ time.

The jacket is an understated British two-button design with four-button working cuffs and twin back vents with concealed buttons. Which means you can commute to work on your bike – without your jacket getting in the way.

On the inside, you’ll find a zipped wallet pocket, a zipped passport pocket and a buttoned mobile phone pocket. There’s two pen slots and a hidden, in-seam security pocket sized to take a small stash of cash or a credit card.

On the outside, the working breast pocket fastens with touch-and-close tabs – it’s just the place for keeping your travel tickets nice and handy but safe and secure.

The Envoy Jacket can obviously be dry cleaned – but it can also be washed in the machine or by hand.

Price: Jacket £235, Trousers £115

Men's Envoy Trousers

Our Envoy Trousers team up with our Envoy Jacket to form the world’s ‘smartest’ travel suit.

They’re cut from a crease-resistant blend of natural wool and technical performance fibres which have been finished with a stain-repellent Advanced Teflon™ finish.

Which, when you add it up, means you can forget about unsightly creases, sweaty legs or unfortunate stains and concentrate on one thing: working – smarter.

The fit has been re-engineered for Spring 2013. We’ve been working very closely with our pattern cutter in Portugal to produce a slimmer, more contemporary fit. They’re still very classic, though, and certainly not the sort of thing that’s going to be out of fashion in two years’ time.

They’re a classic, flat front design with a button and hook bar fastening and a fly extension – they look very smart and you can be sure of one thing – the waist isn’t going to bust open after the first big lunch.

There are two deep hand pockets, an inside zipped pocket and a buttoned rear pocket.

The Envoy Trousers are fully machine washable and dry very quickly. The addition of polyester and elastane to the blend makes them very straightforward to iron – it’s simple to achieve a professional look with amateur ironing skills and it’s certainly a practical option to take just one pair on a week long business trip. Meaning you’ll have even more space in your carry-on bag for extra files and more work – there’s progress!

The hems are unfinished at around 37” for your tailor to turn up to suit.
