Really like the lightly padded, but pretty significantly roped shoulder and nipped waist that is C&M’s style.
I look forward to your commission progressing and the associated articles.
Wow you’re fast !
I asked yesterday via Twitter to C&M’s account
Thank you for sharing…
A double breasted jacket (6×2) is a true gem, a gold mine if you will. It’s unbelievable how such a voluminous jacket can work in perfect harmony with other clothes of slim proportions. The shirt, the tie, all work perfectly. Nothing seems anomalous.
That nipped waist though.
When I was a looking for a tailor to make my wedding suit (I went with John Kent eventually) I had a great conversation with Joe Morgan regarding styles of suiting etc. He is a really helpful, lovely guy. A little too expensive for my pocket unfortunately but I would love to have them make me something one day.That is a beautiful jacket though. A little too much roping for my taste but it’s not out of balance. I love the full lapels. Fantastic!
Simon are we safe to assume that the word ‘special’ is used euphemistically?!!!
HiSimon,Thanks for having posted the requested pic. This outfit is obviously a Britsh take on the seersucker suit!For the kind of event refered to, it seems to me too to be a very good choice indeed. Inspiring!John
Seersucker is seen as a “cheap” suit nowadays. This version is clearly not cheap and certainly stands out in a crowd. If you want subtle bespoke, it can be found; yet if you want something YOU really like, bespoke is the answer.
It got me to look up the C&M website and see when they might come to the US. Of course, my “old and fat” carcass may not look good in a double breasted version of the suit but the concept is intriguing. That and the fact that I have lost 20 pounds since my last bespoke suit…
That is a wonderful creation. I think I may just have to indulge in one similar.
-7° C outside make me think of seersucker commissions.. do you know the maker of that navy fabric, Simon? Thank you, and all the best for 2016!
This is a superb concept for the hot summers of Madrid. Do you know who makes the fabric? Unfortunately classic seersucker in pastel colours would attract too much attention, like wearing a straight boater hat.
It’s Solbiati (now part of Loro Piana)
