Denim Blue Bespoke SuitBusiness attire doesn’t need to be uninteresting or nondescript.
Even in the most conservative settings, subtle details and a great fit can set your look apart.

Every year we work with clients from all walks of life—from artists and performers who need to express their individuality in the boldest fashion—to lawyers and bankers for for whom a more strict dress code applies.

For an artist, or someone in a creative field, a bold plaid may be called for.  For a banker, we can look closely at the sheen and drape of the fabric and the subtle details of the prick-stitching and hand-tacking of pocket ends.

Tabbed Suit Cuff Denim BlueDenim Blue 3pc Suit PinstripedOn every piece that we make, we can examine and consider hundreds of possibilities from the most subtle to the most bold.

And in each case, we work with a client to get exactly the fit that he is looking for—-whether this means something that is as fitted as possible or something that has more of a classic drape.

Double Breasted Bespoke SuitThe suit pictured is cut from a Japanese woven heavyweight wool suiting in denim blue with a contrast linen vest.

The style features a somewhat cropped jacket length with a fitted silhouette.  The jacket has patch pockets, metal buttons, a curved placket, tabbed sleeve cuffs, and contrast top-stitching in rust color.

The pants are high-waisted with a fitted thigh and seat and a wide leg with a deep cuff.

All of these details give the suit a contemporary “mod” look that is both business-ready and also sporty, durable, and wrinkle free.

But this is just one option from thousands of possible suits.

We work with you from initial sketches and swatches to a muslin fitting (where we mail you a cotton mock-up of the suit to try on and you send digital pics), so that we can be sure we are building exactly the suit you are looking for at every stage.

Each year we work with clients all over the world who are looking to build something unique.  All of our suits are made here in our studio in Denver, Colorado.

Silk Herringbone Tweed Suit

Most suits are made from wool.  And for a good reason.
Wool is wonderfully durable, crisp, wrinkle-resistant. Silk Herringbone Tweed
It can be felted to become weather resistant, brushed to hold in heat, or given an open weave to breathe and wick in the heat.
We love wool, but sometimes we want a bit of novelty and one of the places we turn is to silk.
Just as some people mistakenly identify wool only with itchy and bulky hand-knit sweaters, silk is often pictured only as a light and shimmering satin.
But silk textures can differ completely depending on how the silk is processed and the fabric woven.
The pics show a couple of our most recent silk suits.
The tan and slate blue herringbone suit was made for a recent wedding on the coast of Scotland.
We designed the suit with classic seaside suit details with a hint in the top-stitched pocket style of a 1930s sport jacket.

But like all of our pieces we strove for a look that would feel timely.
The fabric for this suit is a thick silk tweed.
It is utterly dry to the hand and without luster.  In this state, silk serves as a kind of warm season tweed.
Unlike a wool tweed which is much more of a fall/winter fabric that insulates, a silk tweed breathes beautifully.Cobalt Blue Suit
The cobalt suit is closer to what most people think of when they think of silk.
It has lustre.  It shines.  The fabric is a silk duppioni.
The word duppioni comes from the Italian for “two pods” and the unique texture of the duppioni lies in the fact that it has many irregularities or “slubs” that are formed in the places where two silk worm pods were woven touching each other.
This fabric is particularly interesting in that the weave is iridescent with both blue and purple yarn.  This gives the fabric extra depth.
Of course, a silk duppioni suit is not a work suit.  Traditionally a duppioni suit would be worn in the tropics or on a cruise.
We made this suit for a wedding in Arizona where bright saturated colors look amazing in the sun.

But a silk duppioni suit like this, especially one with an iridescent tonic weave, is a great suit for the summer nightlife in any city.
If you have a unique suit in mind, we can make it.
Contact A.J. (aj@denverbespoke.com) to get started working on a custom piece.
All of our suits are muslin fit—we make a cotton prototype of the suit to fit on you before we even touch the fabric.  You send us digital pics of yourself wearing it, and we can customize the pattern to look great on you.
