What you need to know

The Morning Suit is a classic garment, used for formal occasions and important events. In the past it was the outfit of choice for many when the need to look smart and sophisticated arose. Now most often worn on that most important occasion...  a wedding.
I have made this suit using 1/100s wool from Yorkshire UK. It has a brilliant unique structure that allows you to stay warm in Winter, but cool during the Summer months. British fabrics are considered the best in the world and this is why I use them in my suits.

Style Features

This is an extremely sophisticated and elegant suit, so I have designed it with features to enhance this look.

This jacket is based on a traditional Tailcoat. It a one button fastening, a breast pocket and peaked lapels. It also has a centre vent to create the ‘tails’ that are known with this style. I have also added the 2 buttons at the top of the lower back; even though they are nowadays only decorative they form part of the character of the whole suit.
I have made the trousers plain fronted (NOT pleated as shown in the photo – pleats are available in the personalisation stage) I have also added a pocket to the right at the rear and given the trousers straight legs.

Many of the features can be changed and many more can be added in the personalisation stage, if you want to add a personal touch to your site.

I have chosen a lining and piping colour that I believe matches and compliments the suit you have chosen. However I have a variety of other colours to choose from also. You can view these and my selection in the personalisation stage.

A Morning Suit is made up from a number of details that define the suits look and character, changing these would change the concept of the suit, therefore there will be no option to alter these. Please see below.

  • I have put a floating canvas in the structure of the suit as it increases the quality, the feel and allows the jacket to wear better.
  • The centre vent that creates the tails cannot be altered. The tails are one of the Morning Suits main features.
  • The suit is a one button fastening suit, changing this changes the design and the overall fit of the jacket.

A little history

The decorative 2 lower back buttons were generally used to fasten the tails of the jacket up and out of the way when travelling on horseback. This kept the jacket cleaner for the formal occasions.

Suit Build Quality

I add extra details to the suit to make sure that my suits are the very best they can be. I have put a D stitch at the edge of all the pockets to reinforce them and add strength, this is a time consuming process and is one that is generally missed off jackets (Even high end Bespoke Garments) to save time and money.
I have also put an extra bar tack (strong finishing stitch) in the crotch of the trouser to make sure that my trousers will never split in that area.

A bit about the fabric

I have used a Barathea Fabric for the Morning Suit. This is a UK Fabric that has a traditional finish. It can also be known as Hopsack Twill.

I have chosen this fabric as it involves a 2 core yarn, this means the fabric will always return to its original shape. It is balanced as it is 2 fold in the weft and the warp, this means the material does not twist while it is hanging.

Wool is an ideal fabric as it wicks water away from the body making it perfect for Summer use and it stops the wind making it great for the colder months. The perfect fabric for the perfect suit.
