We make all sorts of suits.
A windowpane is a simple plaid pattern that is less sporty than many plaids.
Some plaids only work as a sports jacket or stand alone piece. Make a whole suit from the plaid and it quickly becomes too much.
But many windowpanes look incredible when make in to a two or three piece suit and are just as dressy as a pinstripe or a solid.
The pictures show a few different pieces we have made recently. A retro brown suit with peak lapels and a wide back collar cut from superfine wool gabardine is complimented by a windowpane vest in a lightweight tweed with olive and peach in the weave.
The three piece suit with hacking pockets on the jacket and vest has a particularly brilliant weave. Up close the fabric has an almost optic effect with a mini-houndstooth check pattern and light blue windowpane. From a certain distance, the suit reads as light grey.
But when you pay attention to the weave of the fabric, the whole suit becomes brilliant and distinctive.
The third piece is a stand alone sports jacket that is perfect for the business casual look. Here again, the fabric is amazing and fine and pairs up beautifully with many colors of slacks. The rich corozo nut buttons give the piece an additional touch.
If you are thinking about a suit or other piece, contact me and I can get together some swatches for you. We can get some of the most amazing fabrics out there, whether you want something minimal and classic, something funky, or something that will stand out in a business environment.
