Vegan Men's Business Suit

For the growing number of vegans buying fine wedding attire and business suits can be difficult.

It can be nearly impossible to find a suit that is made without the use of animal products.
Nearly every part of a traditional suit is made from an animal product.

The buttons are made from horn or shell, the body from wool with a wool melton undercollar and goat hair canvas for inner structure.
Linings and bindings are often made from silk.
Although we do make traditional suits from wools and silks, we have developed a process specifically for vegan customers that eliminates the use of animal products but makes for a suit that has all of the fine qualities of a traditional suit.
We have now made dozens of suits using this method and have had wonderful results.
The pictures that accompany this posting show four recent projects that we made for weddings around the world:
A gray retro look suit made from a rayon blend pinstripe fabric, a cotton vest and pant suit with synthetic moleskin trimmings to replace leather,  and a polyester morning coat for formal wear.
Any of our suits in any style can be made in vegan-friendly versions and we can even make quality custom leather jackets using the best faux leathers.  
We muslin-fit almost all of our suits, which means that we mail you a prototype to try on before we cut the final suit.
This allows us to guarantee a perfect fit even via long distance given that a custom paper pattern has been adjusted exactly for your style and body type.
To get started we sketch ideas for you until we hit upon the perfect suit and mail you swatches of fabrics that you might like.

All of these suits were featured on the wedding blog RockNRoll Bride.  So definitely check out that site for more pictures of our work.  The photos of the first suit are by John Benevente.  Those of the vest and pant suit by Our Labor of Love.  And those of the morning coat wedding by PhotoPink NYC.

Blue Linen Herringbone Suit
We made it for a customer in North Carolina for his wedding after searching through hundreds of fabrics and hunting down the best colors of petersham ribbon for the trim.
The fabric itself is a herringbone weave linen/viscose that is great for the heat and the cut is based on our “Mad Ave.” cut with contrast buttons, buttonholes and trim.

Our suits can be as fun or as serious as a customer chooses (and this suit is both fun and a bit serious).
We specialize in working with customers who want something unique and often less uptight than the standard dress suit.
Contact A.J. ( aj@denverbespoke.com ) with your ideas for a custom project and we will quote you a price and send swatches and sketches.
Check out our pricing page for our current prices.  We offer consistent and easy to understand pricing for our muslin fit suits (where we send you a mock-up of the suit cut from rough cotton first to guarantee fit).
Peak Lapel Vest and JacketHere are two suits that we made that are almost the same—and completely different.Full Vegan Suit
One customer recommended another, and both suits are to be worn in the same wedding later this month.
The first suit has dramatic peak lapels, and a peak lapel vest to match. It is lined in a skull print, with skull print tie.

Peak Lapels

What is more, this suit is made for a vegan customer, so we used rayon and cotton fabrics instead of the usual wools and silks. The result is a classic meets West coast style that is completely unique.

Wool Silk Pinstripe Suit

The second suit also has peak lapels, but much gentler ones. This suit has a retro nineteen teens look to it. The vest is completely classic with six buttons and a moderately high neckline.
The lining is a stunning silver satin. The fabric for this piece was a heavy to medium weight wool/silk blend that tailored up beautifully.

Some of the Options

Two black, single-breasted, peak lapel, pinstripe suits, but the difference between them is almost complete.

This is the true beauty of having a suit custom made. You choose every detail to create something that is completely your own. The sketch at the side shows some of the many pocket and lapel options. But feel free to imagine your own.

This is a suit that we made for a customer over the summer. It has a really trendy Brooklyn feel to it with only one button on the jacket.Trendy Suit Sketch

Of course, one must not button the bottom button on almost any style of jacket and so making a jacket with only one button doesn’t necessarily change the style in any way. But actually omitting the second button is daring, albeit in an ultra-minimal, technical sorta way.
If you look at the sketch I made for the jacket, you can see that I originally had two buttons in mind. But the single-button style really makes the flat, thin, elongated lapels stand out.Pocket Detail
As this suit was made for a vegan customer, no animal products were used.
Actually, a more difficult task than it sounds, as every last part of an expensive suit, from buttons (horn or shell) to lining (silk), fabric (wool) and canvas interfacing (goat or horse) is often animal derived. Here the fabric is a rayon (derived from cellulose) herringbone and the lining an amazing iridescent cotton/poly.
