Made to be Played In

Tailor’s Notes
If you don’t already own a well-fitting sports jacket, it should be the first thing you invest in. Do it right and you’ll look as sharp and dapper as anyone. Just remember: it’s called a sports jacket for a reason—it’s meant for play. It doesn’t need a special occasion, and it doesn’t need to match anything.

The Construction
Made from a wool & cashmere blend from Fox Bros, this jacket was made and cut in England. As much of it as possible was hand-tailored. A suit such as this takes 8-9 weeks to make, unless you opt for our Express Service. We have a halfway baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the suit is finished and delivered.

Details
The cloth is from Fox Bros, with horn buttons supplied by Bernstein & Banleys in Southend.

A Soft Touch

Tailor’s Notes
A soft velvet blazer shows you’ve got serious style, and it’s impossible not to touch, caress, and lean into. Velvet outerwear, trousers, and even sneakers have been slowly making their way back into the wardrobe. The plush fabric can now be worn day or night, and juxtaposed with anything from formal attire to jeans and a shirt.

Bespoke Blue Sports Jacket

Tailor’s Notes
A sports jacket isn’t a suit, so don’t treat it like one. A plaid shirt, purple sweater, anything from khakis to jeans—it all works. If you’re uncertain, compose the outfit on your bed until you get it right. If you’re looking for understated elegance, pare things down with black, silver, or mirrored buttons. You can take this jacket from the office to dinner and then to the after-hours bar without changing a thing.

The Construction
Made with a canvass, the jacket is made and cut in England. As much of the jacket as possible is hand tailored. As with every jacket we make, unless you choose our Express service, the jacket will take 8-9 weeks to make – we have a half way baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the jacket is finished and delivered.

Details
The cloth was from Holland & Sherry and the lining from Dugdales in Huddersfield. The cloth is 100% wool with working buttons and working cuffs.

The Nehru Suit

A Bespoke Nehru Jacket

Tailor’s Notes
The Nehru suit is never out of style. It’s a sleek, modern look that seems appropriate in today’s tieless world. Since this jacket shows virtually nothing else, it’s important that it be well tailored and fit impeccably. You could wear a banded collar, but the classic accompaniment to a Nehru suit is a turtleneck. No tie is necessary. Forget the bolo. Save it for your Nudie suit.

The Construction
Made from a heavy ‘boiled’ wool, the jacket was made and cut in England. As much of the jacket as possible is hand tailored. As with every jacket we make, unless you choose our Express service, the jacket will take 8-9 weeks to make – we have a half way baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the jacket is finished and delivered.

Details
The cloth was from an English mill near Bradford and the jacket was made with rolled cuffs.

Bespoke Sports Jacket

Tailor’s Notes
If you don’t already own a well-fitting sports jacket, it should be the first thing you next think of. Play it right and you’ll look as sharp as Don Draper. But what should you look out for? It’s called a sports jacket for a reason. You can dress it up, but it’s meant to be played in. Hard. That means throwing it on the backseat of your car or cramming it in your backpack once you’ve peeled it off. It doesn’t need an occasion, and it doesn’t need to match anything. It just needs to be worn.
