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.

Chocolate Peak Lapel Suit

We make all sorts of suits.
Wedding suits, business suits, sportswear.Windowpane Vest
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.

Silver Windowpane Suit

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.

We can get a great fit locally or long distance by using our muslin fitting method.  We first make a cotton mock-up of the pieces and send these to you for feedback and digital pics, then we correct the patterns to fit your body perfectly.
We can make suits with any set of details (pockets, lapel shape, body shape, buttons) imaginable.  Contact me (aj@denverbespoke.com) to get started on a custom project.

Gatsby Style Seersucker Vest

Seersucker is a wonderful material. Stripes are woven into the fabric and then the fabric is washed. Some of the stripes shrink and some do not, creating a puckered pattern.

Classic Southern Style

Seersucker is generally made from cotton and is the ideal summer fabric that breathes well and is a bit more relaxed.
Wear a seersucker suit for any summer daytime outdoor event. It’s great for work if you are an architect out visiting job sites or if you are a groom getting married in the park.

1930s Style Seersucker Suit

We can craft a seersucker suit in any style. The solid ivory suit is cut in the style of a 70s leisure suit, with 4 shell buttons in the front and ultra-wide lapels.

Seersucker Leisure Suit for a Baja Wedding

The brown and white stripe seersucker suit was cut in a 1930s Southern style, and the black and ivory vest was made for a 1920s Gatsby themed wedding.

A Mauve Seersucker Suit

The solid black jacket, lined in tiffany blue silk crepe, was cut in a slightly retro look, that is nonetheless completely modern and makes for great business casual attire.

Black Seersucker Jacket

Each of our pieces is individually crafted to fit the style of the customer, and prices can vary. A muslin fit 3-pc suit can cost almost as much as our standard hand-tailored suits, while an unstructured casual jacket can cost much less.
