Suitably Dressed: Menswear Tailoring

Discover our Bloomsbury suiting collection and the craftsmanship behind it

12th August 2016

The start of the 19 century witnessed a sartorial revolution. The humble suit became the definition of a well-dressed man. While a lot has changed since, the suit’s place in a modern wardrobe remains unchallenged: every man should own a well-made one.

It can take time to find the perfect suitor to spend the rest of your formal life with. But remember you’re making an investment. Superior fabrics, an excellent fit and the finer details all matter.

Expertly tailored in Portugal, our Bloomsbury fit is here to banish all you tailoring woes. Details include buffalo horn buttons and tonal stitching, and cloth is sourced from the finest mills that Italy has to offer.

“Our highlights this season feature a wool and kid mohair blend and a Super 110s flannel suit”, says menswear buyer Tom Saunders. “The S number represents the fineness of the cloth; the higher the number, the finer the fabric.”

Each suit from the collection has a slim fit, but this doesn’t mean it’s restrictive. Our design team has cut a high armhole on the jacket for a groomed finish that provides ease of movement, while the soft shoulder construction and side vents create comfort and enhances the suit’s silhouette.

Built into the jacket is a half canvas construction. This is a piece of fabric that forms part of the jacket’s chest to enrich fit and longevity. To complement this is a choice of full and half lining (also known as buggy lining). It’s a common misconception that half lined jackets should cost less. In fact, it requires meticulous craftsmanship to ensure an impeccable, natural fit.

STYLING

There are many options to style our Bloomsbury fit with. For classic styling wear with a white shirt and smart leather shoes. Alternatively, opt for a mock neck and leather trainers to channel contemporary.
