The new common language will be

The European languages are members of the same family. Their separate existence is a myth. For science, music, sport, etc, Europe uses the same vocabulary. The languages only differ in their grammar, their pronunciation and their most common words. Everyone realizes why a new common language would be desirable: one could refuse to pay expensive […]

Silk Reefer Suit

Here are some pictures of a suit that Lianna and I designed awhile back. I wanted to make a suit that was similar to Victorian seaside and reefer suits, but that had a slightly more updated and modern fit. The fabric I ended up choosing was a silk matka. This tweedy raw silk fabric (blended […]

Houndstooth

This is a houndstooth double-breasted suit lined in grey silk habotai that we completed today for a customer in London. The suiting is an incredible British woolen that entrances the more one looks at it. For this piece we put buttonholes on each of the lapels with a boutonnière ribbon on the left side for […]
