The Chalk Stripe Suit

Images & Video

An English Classic

Tailor’s Notes
The English suit is famous for its contributions towards men’s fashion, and perhaps one of its greatest is the chalk stripe pattern. Popularised by King Edward VII, it looks as striking today as it did a hundred years ago.

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.

Details
The cloth is an English-made wool. The jacket has working cuffs and the buttons are made out of horn.
