What you need to know

This suit is all about the fabric, construction and the fit. I have made this Double Breasted Suit using 1/100 British worsted wool from Yorkshire. British fabric has a unique structure and is brilliant for keeping you warm in Winter and cool in Summer.  It is light material with a soft texture, but is still durable and will keep you looking smart.

Style Features

I have chosen features for this Double Breasted suit that I think make it perfect for a modern business suit. I have based it on a traditional Double Breasted Suit, with a twin vent, a peaked lapel and standard flap pockets. The trousers are plain fronted with straight legs and have two pockets front and rear. You can alter many of the features above in the personalisation stage, and there are many more to choose from.

I have a variety of lining and piping colours to choose from, I have already selected a colour that I believe matches the colour of the suit you have chosen. You can view my choices, and the other alternatives in the personalisation section. Please feel free to choose your own and put your own personal touch to your suit.

There are certain features of the suit that I believe define it as a Double Breasted Suit, and therefore there is no option to alter these. Please see these features below.

  • For this suit a floating canvas adds to the look and wearability of the suit. It is normally only found in Bespoke Suits at top market price.
  • There is no alternative option for the buttoning on the front of the blazer. This suit jacket will come in the traditional style of 3 pairs of 2 buttons.

Suit build quality

I go to the trouble of adding extra detailing onto the suits to make sure it is of top quality. For example, on the end of every pocket, I put in a D stitch for added strength. This is something that I believe should be on all suits, if you check your current wardrobe you may find that many (even high end suits) will not have this, as they are time consuming and therefore expensive to add. Also I add an extra bar tack (tight strong finishing stitch) in the trouser crotch, so my trousers will never split in that area.

A little bit about the fabric

A little more needs to be added to explain why this fabric is so special. British weaving involves a 2 core yarn, this means that the fabric will always return to its original shape. It is 2 fold in the weft and the warp which makes the fabric balanced, and therefore it does not twist while hanging. (Cheaper fabrics generally only use 2 fold in one direction)  Wool also naturally repels water away from your body, making it the ideal fabric for a Summer suit. The  fabric is also tightly woven which means it is ideal for the Winter, as the wind cannot blow through it the way a less tightly woven fabric will.
