The New Formalwear

It is time to look for something fresh. Something, dare I say, fun. The old formalwear is dead and gone. After decades of being stuck in an endless repeat, formalwear is back to what is was in the earlier 20th century and before:

Fabrics By Scabal

We have recently had the privilege of working with several remarkable fabrics from Scabal. Scabal provides much of the finest English-woven cloth to tailors on Savile Row and around the world.  English cloth is instantly recognizable by its incredible finish and drape. Because these fabrics are produced in small volumes but in thousands of styles, […]

The Future of American Sportswear

In the United States, we tend to call the best business and formal looks and fits “European” or “Italian” or “British,”–sometimes for good reason, and sometimes merely as a shorthand for saying that a look is “good” or “exciting” or somehow intangibly different from the basic relaxed New England look that we are used to […]

Morning Coats and Tailcoats–From Wools and Silks

Every year, many of our clients choose to get married in tails. Sometimes in classic white tie, sometimes in a swallowtail look or in one of our military or steampunk styles. Tailcoats and morning coats have deep roots in tradition, but in the modern era can be some of the most unique and expressive pieces […]

What Suits A Wedding? Down With the Black Suit?

Ten years ago more than 2/3 of pictures we would see from weddings would show the groom and the groomsmen, often outdoors and during the day, wearing black tuxedos.

When opening a conversation with a bespoke tailor about a custom suit or sportcoat, one of the first questions you will be asked is “Do you have a preference on the pocket style?” A surprising number of men—even men who wear suits often—won’t have considered pocket styling before. This is for one of two reasons: […]

How Bespoke is Your Bespoke?

What does “bespoke” mean?  Are some suits “more” or “really and truly” bespoke and others “less bespoke” or “bespoke in name only?” To ask this question is to wade into controversy.  Especially when new businesses are popping up every day with custom suit offerings of various quality and customization. Literally, the word “bespoke” just means […]

A Vest?

When clients contact us online to order a suit––or make an appointment to meet with us about a suit here in our workshop in Denver, Colorado––one of the first questions we ask is, “Do you want a vest?” Around 75% of our clients answer “Yes.” Part of this is just the fact that most shops […]

Jean-Fit Dress Pants

I love traditional tailoring. But traditional tailoring can mean a lot of different things on different occasions. Clients often ask me, “What do you wear?”  And my answer tends to be, “Well, I have a very interesting sort of job.” I meet with clients—where it is expected that I look as well dressed as possible.

Plaid Sport Suits and Jackets

For daytime outdoor wear, plaid is supreme. Whether you are at a wedding, the museum, or just headed out for brunch with your friends, a plaid sport coat or vest is ideal. The look is much less uptight than an evening look in black, and much less of a purely “business” look than navy. Because […]
