A Retro Touch – The Three Button suit

Tailor’s Notes

One, two or three buttons? Two-button suits tend to be fairly standard these days, though three-button jackets aren’t uncommon and can add a touch of retro to your look. The three-button suit can add some traditional elegance and style. While you’re probably not going to wear one often, they make for good statement jackets for special occasions. But remember: make sure you’re not fastening every button. For the three-button suit, fasten the top and middle buttons, or just the middle one—but never only the top.

The Construction
This suit was made and cut in Britain, and as much of it as possible was hand-tailored. The jacket was 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.

The cloth is an English-made wool from Holland & Sherry, from their Cape Horn range of fabrics. These are a mix of wool and 1% cashmere, which make for soft suiting and finishing.
