For an English Gentleman – The Navy Suit
This blue suit was made for a young gentleman in West London and it was produced with a great, hard-working wool, achieving a fine tailored finish.
The ensemble was made and cut exclusively in England from a medium wool and subsequently completed with fine hand-tailoring. This style of navy suit takes 8-9 weeks to complete unless you decide to opt for our Express Service, when it can be finished within a much tighter time frame. This process includes a halfway baste fitting, with a subsequent forward baste fitting, before finally being perfected and delivered to our customer, based on their individual specifications.
The cloth for this navy suit was ordered from Bateman & Ogden, an English mill based in Bradford. The company started trading in 1881 when Mr Bateman and Mr Ogden came together to establish a brand new textile business in the area, which is in the heart of the UK textile industry. Today, they are regarded as one of the most highly respected names within the tailoring industry.
