One of the unique characteristics that sets a bespoke garment apart from an off-he-peg alternative, is your choice of lining fabric.

Inside the jacket or on the back of a waistcoat, it’s a little secret between you and your tailor; an opportunity to add a striking flash of colour or a perfectly coordinated print.
The newest ranges of fancy linings have arrive by Huddersfield fine worsted and they look spectacular.

All the linings are woven in Italy and for those who dare, there are many bold and colourful choices. For a more classic approach, a rich selection of shot and solid shades is also available. Come in store and ask us about the new range and let us help match one up with your next suit.

I recently returned from my honeymoon in Europe and while I was over there my wife and I visited the world renowned Pitti Uomo trade fair in Florence, Italy.

The huge exhibition space in Fortezza da Basso is filled with everything from suiting to street wear.  It is buyer’s heaven for everything to do with men’s fashion.  – The pitti fair is as famous for the number of fashionable men attending the fair simply to have their photo taken from the top street photographers of the world – not a buyer amongst them!  The trade fair runs for 4 days in June.

We found a great tie and pocket square company in the exhibit that had a beautiful range of pure silk ties and pocket squares hand made in Italy. I purchased a huge range which is expected in our shop by September this year.
The Italian styles varied quite a lot but we noticed a huge increase in double breasted suits. Trouser legs were quite short and no one wore socks!

Double breasted suits would probably be our slowest selling style – the main reason would be that it is not the “height of fashion” at the moment in Australia.
However, many across Europe (myself included) think otherwise. Double breasted suits are increasingly returning in popularity around the globe and are slowly increasing in popularity here in Australia.

I wear my double-breasted jacket on the shorter side rather than a classic length, I feel it helps with proportion for my shorter than average height.
The double-breasted jacket in most cases is made with a peaked lapel and pockets can straight or slanted with flaps. If you prefer a more casual double-breasted suit (often made in fine cotton) then patched pockets would be suitable.
