Beat the Blues

Tailor’s Notes
Here, one of our customers dons the blue suit as you’ve never seen it before. Traditionally, it’s the most conservative colour—but not when you’re riffing on it like this. Our favourite business look for spring is all about piling on the blues, from your suit to your socks and everything in between.

The Construction
This suit was made and cut in England, and as much of it as possible was hand-tailored. The jacket is canvassed. 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 an English-made wool. The jacket has working cuffs and the buttons are made out of horn.
