Kevin's WeddingIt is hard to think of anything more classic than getting married in a 3-piece tweed herringbone suit. Kevin open
The blonde herringbone suit that you see here was designed for a customer who wanted to flavor his wedding with a bit of the old West.
In particular, he wondered whether we couldn’t make him a suit that recalled Paul Newman in his heyday. A Butch Cassidy and Sundance suit.
Chestnut Tweed Open
The next suit also has a similar flare. This piece is cut in an amazing chestnut fabric, flecked with orange.
The final drawings show the latest iteration of our tweed suits. This time in a green wool/silk Donegal tweed flecked with yellow and red. The details on this suit are somewhat different. A cuffed trouser and patch pockets make for a sport’s suit right out of 1930’s Ireland.
Irish Gardener SketchOur Tweed 3-Pc suits, like all of our suits, are fit using muslin mock-ups of the pieces which we cut in your size and send to you to guarantee fit.

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 in this case with wool and viscose) had a herringbone weave and the look was just right for a seaside style suit but was also something that I could wear on the right occasions all year round.Suit Matka Suit
For the lining, I chose an Asian brocade, which was in keeping with the Victorian theme and style of the suit but also had a “fun and casual” feel to it.
The styling of this suit is unique in so many ways. The button-through pockets, especially the button-through breast pocket, were details that I hadn’t seen on suits newer than the 1930s. The high square notched collar was also something that I hadn’t seen on any modern suits.
The inspiration for some of these features was the white reefer suit pictured at the right. This suit is in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum (and is featured in this book).
Most double-breasted suits today have peak lapels (and I am not sure how this convention started) but the notch lapel on this suit is both thoroughly Victorian and rather mod (I can almost, but not quite see this suit as a product of 1960s London).
This is the type of project that we do best. A piece steeped in historical reference but also modern. A piece that will quickly be recognized as a product of thought, design and taste.

Wool houndstooth double-breasted suitThis 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 holding a flower.
As is common with double-breasted pieces, the jacket has peak lapels. In this case, the lapels begin rather high on the body.
This jacket also has functional cuffs, an optional detail that requires more hand-construction on the sleeve, but is convenient for washing one’s hands and (when the last button is left undone) serves as a way of one-upping the other guys in the office by flaunting the added expense and detail.
Houndstooth is one weave of fabric that is at once complicated (there are so many different sizes of houndstooth, so many variations in color of both the ground and the “tooth” itself), subtle (a black and ivory houndstooth can read as solid grey from a distance) and timeless (the right houndstooth displays an attention to detail and dress without calling too much attention to itself or being too “fashionable”).
