If you feel the cold, why not consider having an overcoat made. Overcoats can be tailored to suit any style you wish but we usually recommend single-breasted 4 button with notch lapels. The perfect length for an overcoat is down to the top of you calf muscle. Pockets can be slanted on the side or straight with flaps – always with a single center back vent.

We recommend a wool and cashmere blend from Holland & Sherry’s “Overcoat” book. They have a range of different weights, colours and patterns and are a perfect composition to keep the warmth inside the jacket.

Our favourite swatch books:

Overcoats by Holland & Sherry, 17-18oz Pure Khan Cashmere. This is for pure luxury (with matching prices!)  Also 17-18oz Wool & Cashmere blend which is our top pick for an overcoat, all are made in England. Fabrics are plains

Precious overcoats by Bower & Roebuck, 18oz pure Camel Hair made in England, a great luxury overcoat cloth.

Winter is coming….

Now is the time to get started on your winter suit.

Winter flannels are perfect for the colder months. In Sydney, a medium weight flannel is probably the best option during winter. Hunt & Winterbottom’s “Winter classics” come in weights of 9-11oz which is actually considered “light” for a flannel. We also have flannels available in heavier cloth for the colder states.  Something plain or patterned, such as herringbone, would be just fine for your next winter suit.

Our favourite swatch books:

Winter Classics by Hunt & Winterbottom, 9oz-11oz Flannel made in Italy. Great medium weight flannel cloth, perfect for Suitings. Large range of plain colours as well as bold checks and stripes

Classic Flannel by Holland & sherry, 9oz-11oz made in England, another great weight for suitings. Large range of plains as well as herringbone and window pane checks

One of our favourite cloth producers, Dormeuil, has recently released an exciting new range which is a tribute to Australian merino wool producers.

The new ‘iconik’ range is a celebration of the of the long standing relationship Dormeuil has had working with Australian producers of the world’s finest wool.

Iconik offers a modern matt finish with a little stretch to offer comfort and high performance. The fabric in this range uniquely utilises the very latest finishing techniques – producing a cloth which is ideal for year round use.   

The range (which is produced in England) consists of false plains, micro designs, very subtle stripes and delicately coloured overchecks. We particularly like the range of blues which are striking, yet very elegant. 

Technical Specifications:
Super 120’s Australian wool ,Weight: 250g / 8oz
