The Legend of the Embroidered Suit

Most of the embroidered suits we make are embroidered entirely by hand, with 60 hours of chain and blanketstitch embroidery and hundreds of Swarovski crystals.  The result is that our pieces look and feel incredibly natural in comparison to pieces embroidered by machine.

The Meaning of Bespoke Handwork

There is nothing harder than trying to describe true bespoke clothing to a perspective client today. The market is saturated with factory made goods that are somewhat customizable in color and fit, but have nothing to do with the art of tailoring.

Shocking Silk Tuxedos

We are famous for being the only tailoring house in the United States to make suits in radically interesting fabrics. Sure your average made-to-measure house might have a couple bolder choices in their collections.  But floral prints, iridescent silks?  Not so much.

When it comes to wool fabrics, no type of fabric represents menswear heritage like tweed: Classic weaves like herringbones, and houndstooth.  Flecked Irish Donegal yarns with so many colors.  Estate plaids and hunting thornproof.
