Our jackets captivate through a unabashedly long cut. The aim is to create, or accentuate, an athletic silhouette for the wearer.
Construction & Finishing
All of our suits are fully-canvassed. If you do something, you should do it right. When commissioning a high-quality suit, the last thing you should skimp on is the construction. We also have a weakness for the finer details, such as hand-made button holes or hand-attached collars.
The shoulder-line is possibly the most distinctive part of a tailor’s work. Our aesthetic is distinctly British. Our shoulders are roped and extend ever so slightly past the natural shoulder point. This offers a more dynamic and athletic silhouette.
Armhole & Sleeves
Our armholes are cut very high. Aside from its clear functional advantages, it also adds something to the aesthetic. The high armhole affords maximum comfort and freedom of movement while simultaneously stretching the silhouette to make the upper body look more slender. To further accentuate this slender look, we cut our sleeves rather slim, creating a true hourglass shape through the body.
Our jackets are cut unabashedly long. There are many reasons why we don’t appreciate overly short suits. Other than the functional benefits of a longer jacket, it also elongates the silhouette. Our ideal length covers the fork of the trousers. This lengthens the look of the legs and upper body immensely. That being said, we always apply our own formula to determine ideal length. The key things we look at are relative arm length, length of the upper body, and overall body type.
A beautiful suit must have a beautiful back. We cut the back as slim as possible without restricting freedom of movement. This is one of a good tailor’s most important tasks.
Our button stance is relatively low. Generally, the closing button is placed at the natural waist. This will draw the eye to the slimmest point of the body and allow the lapels to achieve their full potential.
Our silhouette has been described as being more traditionally feminine than masculine. This is why our wide lapels play a key role. Wider lapels serve to build up the look of the chest and balance out the overall look.
