Custom Made Focus – Staff Style, Summer ’18

By Tom

Posted in , , | Tags : ,

Since starting the newest part of our tailoring services we’ve had much success so we
thought it was time to share 
how it all works and show our own results.
So here is our staff style, Custom special!

For this season’s uniform, instead of 2 or 3 piece suits, we’ve each done the custom process and then chosen a chino from ‘the best trouser maker in the world’ Incotex.
Because why wouldn’t you?!

So below are our choices and looks for a casual Spring Summer ’18.

Our hand made tailoring is also available though Caruso, as always.
Enquiries welcome.

Hopefully this will inspire you all….aswell as the weather!

First off, Doherty.

He wanted something blue ish but not a flat navy (we all have enough of those).
So he chose this beautiful blue checked wool blended with linen and silk so it is soft but lightweight for the season.
The styling is kept classic with patch pockets (the best way to signify that you’re wearing a jacket as opposed to a suit jacket). The lapels are a classic notch and there are 2 buttons. All of this you can choose.

The internal lining is in the ‘buggy style’ (just over the shoulders and edges) which keeps the weight of the jacket down and we all like the look of this. Again it’s personal choice and there’s several options.

His chino of choice is the dark blue skin fit from Incotex.
The supima cotton shirt from Fedeli is worn with a knitted silk tie from our selection online.
Our pocket squares are here and the available chukka boots from Ludwig Reiter.

This season Evans was clearly in an optimistic mood when he chose this particularly lightweight cloth! Ha
“It’s a linen / cotton mix in a beautifully grainy brown, like a summery tweed which will go with absolutely everything. It came from Angelico in Biella and I love it’s natural drape. For this colour I wanted the darker brown lining and bright horn button to have a nice contrast of creamy browns.”

Other details Evans chose are a larger lapel width, completely unlined interior, patch front pockets and 
also a heavy stitch going around all edges.
And always a short sharp jacket fit!

‘For the rest of my new season look I’ve gone for the light grey skin fit Incotex chino, light chambray shirt from Glanshirt and my favourite loafers from Crockett & Jones, the Sydney!
The accessories from our selection in store.
I like the combination of blues and browns with pops of greens!
Also combining a denim shirt with a tie is a 
combo we’re very much behind this year’.

 

Custom Made,
If there’s a drawback to Custom Made it would be the limited selection of seasonal books within the house cloths so when it comes to uniforms, it’s first come first served.
And Stott found this cloth before anyone else!

It’s a lovely olive green basket weave in wool (mainly), linen and silk.
Again patch pockets and notch lapels were chosen and a 2 button styling.
And buggy lining with back strap.

*With hand made (by Caruso) you can have whatever book you want from our selection in store. You can also do this with Custom Made but the leap up in price would probably make it not worth doing
