Simple never has to mean dull, least of all in a good suit: and this lovely new suit is part of our new Six of the Best City Suits. The critical things to get right are the three c’s—cut, construction and cloth. The resulting suit just looks good: close to the body, slim but not tight, no sagging shoulders nor bagginess. It was Beau Brummell who worked with the English fine cloth makers and tailors of London, setting rules in suit construction which still pertain. Hand stitching is a mark of quality; around the lapels, for example, it creates the perfect ‘roll’ to ensure the lapels lie flat. The more hand stitching, the better, important even when unseen, such as in the lining. The collar needs a felt lining to stabilise its line. Trousers should be half lined for quality of drape as well as comfort.
This new navy pure wool suit is one of our Six of the Best, and contains all the finer details set out above. The cloth is a smart triple sky pinstripe: not only elegant but individual, and the suit looks and feels made to measure.
Beautifully tailored by our Club tailors in Ireland, Magee of Donegal, in high-quality 340g (12oz) pure wool cloth, the fine tailoring details include hand stitching on the lapels and lining, and felt collar lining.
The paisley claret lining contains a multitude of pockets, including ticket pocket and wallet pocket. The trousers have a flat front and are half lined for the essential elegant drape.
