Bespoke Chalk Stripe Suit

Tailor’s Notes
The English suit has been famous for contributing much towards style and perhaps one of its greatest contributions is the chalk stripe pattern. The chalk stripe, popularised by Edward the VII, looks as striking today as it did one hundred years ago.

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

The cloth was from English made wool, with working buttons and horn buttons.
