What Suits A Wedding? Down With the Black Suit?

Ten years ago more than 2/3 of pictures we would see from weddings would show the groom and the groomsmen, often outdoors and during the day, wearing black tuxedos. Not that there is anything wrong with this! “Class,” “Sophistication,” “Snobbery,” however—whatever you want to call it—generally decrees against wearing a black suit during the daytime […]

The Details are in Your Pocket

When opening a conversation with a bespoke tailor about a custom suit or sportcoat, one of the first questions you will be asked is “Do you have a preference on the pocket style?” A surprising number of men—even men who wear suits often—won’t have considered pocket styling before. This is for one of two reasons: […]

How Bespoke is Your Bespoke?

What does “bespoke” mean?  Are some suits “more” or “really and truly” bespoke and others “less bespoke” or “bespoke in name only?” To ask this question is to wade into controversy.  Especially when new businesses are popping up every day with custom suit offerings of various quality and customization. Literally, the word “bespoke” just means […]

Custom 1920s Style Vests

We are famous for our 1920s style vests. The 1920s were a high point for waistcoats. The vests of the period contain all of the classic details that would become more codified in the 1930s. But in this earlier period there is still a wonderful flexibility and richness in style.

Editions ’36–Custom Sportswear

Our Editions '36 pieces are constructed one-at-a-time from authentic heavy weight woolens and cottons to create pieces with the same durability that garments had in the 1930s. The pieces are totally unstructured and quite fitted with high armholes for extra movement. We can also add back pleats and gussets for "an action back" with even more movement, depending on the activities you plan on doing while wearing the jacket.

Plaid Sport Suits and Jackets

For daytime outdoor wear, plaid is supreme. Whether you are at a wedding, the museum, or just headed out for brunch with your friends, a plaid sport coat or vest is ideal. The look is much less uptight than an evening look in black, and much less of a purely “business” look than navy. Because […]
